Oxford Local Plan 2001-2016

The Oxford Local Plan 2001-2016 was adopted on 11 November 2005. The Local Plan sets out the detailed framework for our land use policies. All planning applications are considered against the policies of the Local Plan.

Since publication of the Oxford Local Plan, many of the policies have either been superseded by more recent policies in other Local Development Framework documents or have expired having not been “saved” as shown in the saved policies direction letter below.

This document lists all of the original policies within the Oxford Local Plan 2001-2016 and shows which have been superseded by other documents or have expired.
