Consultation on Cotswolds Garden Village at Eynsham

Message from West Oxfordshire Planning Policy Consultations

You may be aware that land to the north of the A40 near Eynsham is allocated in the emerging Local Plan for a new ‘garden village’ of around 2,200 homes together with business land and other supporting facilities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The details of the proposal will be taken forward through a new ‘Area Action Plan’ (AAP) which will establish an overall vision for the new garden village together with a series of guiding principles and policies.

As a first step in the AAP process the Council has produced an ‘issues paper’ which is available for comment from Friday 22 June until Friday 3 August 2018.

Copies of the consultation paper and standard response form are available on the Council’s website at
