Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Following on from a successful referendum, Oxford City Council is now required to adopt, or 'make' the Headington Neighbourhood Plan.


The Head of Planning, Sustainable Development and Regulatory Services submitted a report presenting the Headington Neighbourhood Plan for adoption so that it can become part of the Oxford Development Plan.


Councillor Hollingsworth, Board Member for Planning and Regulatory Services, introduced the report and drew attention to the immediate increase in Community Infrastructure Levy funds available to the Headington Neighbourhood Plan area that would result from the adoption of the plan.


The Committee noted the relationship between this plan, the current Local Plan and the emerging Local Plan; and that its policies would be included in the determination of applications at committee and under delegated powers.


The Committee commended all those who had worked to get the plan to the stage of adoption.


The City Executive Board resolved to:


1.    Agree to ‘make’ the Headington Neighbourhood Plan;


2.    Recommend Council to adopt the Headington Neighbourhood Plan as part of the Council’s development plan for the Headington neighbourhood area.


Councillor Turner arrived after the start of this item and took part in the discussion.
