Planning for infrastructure 

The Examination of the CIL Charging Schedule has concluded and we have received the Inspector’s Report.  The report concluded that, subject to modifications, the CIL Charging Schedule is ‘sound’.

Alongside CIL, we consulted on a draft Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). This document sets out the Council’s proposed approach to collecting infrastructure contributions through CIL and Section 106. The Council is now reviewing the feedback ahead of updating and finalising the SPD.

The Local Development Scheme

The main task of the team is to prepare the Vale of White Horse Local Plan and supporting documents. We have now updated the Local Development Scheme (September 2016) (898.4 KB) PDF that sets outs our current work programme.

Please note the planning policy relating to minerals and waste matters is the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council.
