No housing in Sibford for Oxford!

At Cherwell District Council's Parish Liaison Meeting on Wednesday 22 June, we learnt something about the outcome of their Local Plan Part 1 Partial Review "Oxford's Unmet Housing Need".

The main thing that concerns Sibfordians is that, as expected, CDC are not proposing any housing development in our area as a result of this review. They are proposing that any such development be focused around Kidlington.

It remains highly likely that CDC will propose small scale development in Sibford Ferris in their Local Plan Part 2, but we also learnt on Wednesday that the consultation on this has been further delayed, probably into 2018.

If you have any concerns or comments about any of this, please get in touch via phone or email, or come along to the next Ferris Parish Council Meeting in Sibford School Sports Hall Classroom at 7.45pm on 3rd July.
