West Oxfordshire District Council’s Call for Sites

Get Involved in Shaping West Oxfordshire's Future: West Oxfordshire District Council's Call for Sites

At Brodie Planning Associates, we believe that active participation in local planning is essential for creating vibrant and sustainable communities. That’s why we’re excited to inform you about an important opportunity to have your say in shaping the future of West Oxfordshire.

West Oxfordshire District Council is running a Call for Sites, Ideas, and Opportunities as part of an 8-week focused consultation from August 30 to October 25, 2023.

This consultation is designed to gather valuable insights and ideas from the community to help shape the future of West Oxfordshire. The consultation focuses on three key elements:

1. Draft Local Plan Objectives: The Council has put forward a series of draft objectives that will guide the development of the local plan. These objectives lay the foundation for the plan’s approach and anticipated policy content.

2. The Future Pattern of Development: The Council is exploring various scenarios for the future pattern of development in West Oxfordshire up to 2041. This includes considering how and where future growth should be directed.

3. Call for Sites, Ideas, and Opportunities: An opportunity for stakeholders to put forward their thoughts on how land in the district might be used in the future such as new housing, employment, infrastructure, community use, green space, nature recovery and renewable energy.

Neighbourhood Plan success for Honeybourne as plan is successful at referendum!

Another great result. Honeybourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan successfully passes Referendum under the guidance and direction of BPA. Thursday’s positive Referendum result saw an impressive 89.5% ‘yes’ vote with a 28% turnout. We have worked with the group from conception, having assisted them every step of the way. It is great to see the Plan successfully pass through a public vote, it will be formally adopted by Wychavon District Council within the next 8 weeks.


Pebworth Neighbourhood Plan has now been formally ‘made’.

The Plan was unanimously adopted by councillors at the Wychavon District Council Meeting last night (18 September 2019).

BPA worked with the parish from the Plan’s conception to completion, assisting the group every step of the way.Endorsement through a successful referendum and adoption by the Council sees the Plan formally sit alongside the South Worcestershire Development Plan. A great achievement for BPA and the Steering Group.
