As you may be aware, the emerging South Oxfordshire Local Plan is currently at the Examination stage. Following recent examination hearings, the Planning Inspector has now asked South Oxfordshire District Council to prepare a ‘Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications’ to the plan.  The schedule reflects the modifications, or changes, that the Inspector considers necessary to make the plan sound before it can move to the adoption stage. These are the only changes that can be made to the plan now. You can find out more by visiting our Local Plan webpage www.southoxon.gov.uk/newlocalplan. Information about the consultation will be available on our website from Monday 21st September.

To give people a chance to have their say on the Modifications, South Oxfordshire District Council is carrying out a six-week consultation which runs from Monday 21 September 2020 until midnight on 2 November 2020.

We are writing to you to seek your help in raising awareness about this consultation. We would be grateful if you could please print and display the attached poster during the consultation period (21 September to 02 November) on any noticeboards that you use to communicate with your local community. We would also be grateful if you could please forward/distribute this poster via any database of residents and/or local organisations you hold.

Thank you in advance for your help in engaging local communities. If you have any questions, please contact Dorottya Faludi on 07717271925 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Yours sincerely,
