In this, they have confirmed that 600 houses should be allowed at Tank Farm at the top of town.
The plan also seeks to secure at least 4.5 hectares (and potentially 7.3) of employment land.
The plan stresses priorities for ‘Town Centre vitality and viability’, ‘alleviation of HGV movements’ and infrastructure needs ‘emerging from the Chipping Norton Neighbourhood Plan.
But final completion of the Local Plan will probably not be until January 2016.
