Oxford Local Plan 2040 Reg 18 Part 2 Consultation

Closed 27 Mar 2023

Opened 13 Feb 2023

Feedback updated 29 Nov 2023

We asked

We carried out a follow up to the Preferred Options consultation dedicated specifically to the question of housing need, as the necessary evidence was not immediately available for the first round.  We had commissioned studies to collect evidence on the level of housing need in Oxford, and we invited public comments on the findings of the studies and the methods that were used.

You said

We have prepared a summary of all the comments received and produced a report which is available to view here on our webpages.

We did

We have produced a draft Local Plan for submission to the Government for examination.  This draft plan containing policies that have been informed by the feedback from the Preferred Options Consultations, including policies relating to housing provision and site allocations. 

It is possible to comment on the housing and site allocation policies in the ongoing Local Plan Regulation 19 Consultation, after which the plan will be formally submitted.


Oxford City Council has been seeking views on the latest stage of the Oxford Local Plan 2040.

Part A of this consultation was carried out  for 6 weeks in October 2022 to November 2022 and will act as the main process for collating Oxford's residents' responses to our Local Plan policy options.

Now as a Part B of this consultation, Oxford City Council is looking for views on our housing need statistics following the collapse of the Oxfordshire Plan 2050. The responses from this consultation will be considered in the drafting of policies for the Oxford Local Plan 2040.
