Bioabundance was dismayed at the Fateful Vote of 10th December 2020 when councillors at South Oxfordshire voted through the Local Plan 2035. We know councillors felt forced to adopt the plan that they hated as much as their electorate does. It will do untold damage to our land.
In response, on the 4th January, Bioabundance issued a Pre-Action Protocol to South Oxfordshire District Council.
The challenge to the plan is on the grounds of climate change, improper pressure put on councillors to adopt the plan, excessive and incorrectly calculated housing numbers, and inadequate consultation.
Council has until the 20th January 2021 to respond.
