Forthcoming SPDs

We are preparing two Supplementary Planning Documents, for the redevelopment of the Oxford station area and a high quality design guide for Oxford.

High Quality Design in Oxford - Respecting Heritage and Achieving Local Distinctiveness SPD

We are developing an SPD to ensure that high quality design is achieved in all new development in Oxford. The SPD will support design and heritage policies in the Oxford Local Plan 2001-2016, Core Strategy 2026 and Sites and Housing Plan 2011-2026.

We have identified some issues that we think the SPD might address. We prepared a paper to explain these issues and how we think they might be addressed in the SPD, on which consultation concluded on 17 April 2015.
