Salt Cross Update - August 2022

Update on Salt Cross Garden Village

The Planning Inspector has responded to West Oxfordshire District Council on the Area Action Plan (AAP) for Salt Cross Garden Village, paving the way for the plan to be approved and setting the scene for the development to progress.

The Area Action Plan sets out the framework for how the Salt Cross Garden Village should be a landscape led development, taking into account key factors such as affordable housing, protecting the environment, active travel and business growth.

The AAP was developed through extensive consultation with local communities to make sure the development is right for the district.

Views will be sought on the proposed changes through a full public consultation – the timing of which will be confirmed as soon as possible, but is anticipated to take place shortly.
