Oxford Local Plan 2036: Schedule of proposed additional minor changes April 2020

 

This document is a schedule of proposed minor changes to the plan. Minor changes to the Plan involve rectifying typographical errors and providing factual clarifications to existing wording in the Plan. Some minor changes have been agreed through the Statements of Common Ground, while others have been brought to the attention of the Council through representations made at the Regulation 19 stage. Given that minor changes are not substantive in nature, and do not relate to the soundness of the plan, consultation is not required.

Retail and tourism

Oxford’s high streets are full and active and the vacancy rates are low. The market is confident for the future with significant investment planned and being delivered, such as the new Westgate centre, which opened in October 2017. Oxford is a major draw for visitors from overseas, domestic tourists and day visitors. It attracts approximately 7 million visitors per year, generating £780 million of income for local Oxford businesses.

The homes should be delivered as general market and affordable housing in accordance with Policy H2 unless it is expressly stated in the site allocation policy that student accommodation or employer-linked affordable housing are suitable on the site. Other specialist forms of housing will be considered on their merits.

If communal accommodation is to be provided, the minimum quantum shall be calculated on the basis of the national policy ratio (or any amendment or replacement thereof). The ratio at the time of adoption of the Local Plan is that 2.5 new student bed spaces is considered as the equivalent of 1 new home and for other communal accommodation 1.8 bed spaces is considered as equivalent to 1 new home.

The Plan goes as far as possible to identify suitable housing sites within the built up area but these can only provide for a relatively small proportion of Oxford’s housing needs. The Green Belt Study (LUC, 2017) assessed the potential release of sites SP23-SP30 SP24 – SP31 from the Green Belt. These sites have been released from the Green Belt because their impact on it ranges from between a low to a moderate impact rating on the overall purposes of the Green Belt. […]”

Affordable rented housing

Rented housing that has similar characteristics as social rented housing (see below) except that it is outside the national rent regime, thus subject to other rent controls that require it to be offered to eligible households at a rent of up to 80% of local market rents, on a minimum 2-year fixed-term tenancy. Providers will be expected to consider the Local Housing Allowance for the area, and any cap on total household benefit payments, when setting rents. Affordable rented housing is not the same as social rented housing, and cannot therefore be substituted for social rented.
