Report of Assistant Director for Planning and Development


Purpose of report


The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the emerging draft Cherwell Local Plan 2040 for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to consider ahead of the emerging plan being considered by Executive on 5 December 2022.




All matters were considered in exempt session, see resolution for item 8.


Exclusion of the Press and Public

The following item contains exempt information as defined in the following paragraph of Part 1, Schedule 12A of Local Government Act 1972.


3– Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).


Members are reminded that whilst the following item has been marked as exempt, it is for the meeting to decide whether or not to consider each of them in private or in public. In making the decision, members should balance the interests of individuals or the Council itself in having access to the information. In considering their discretion members should also be mindful of the advice of Council Officers.


Should Members decide not to make a decision in public, they are recommended to resolve as follows:


“That under Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972, the public and press be excluded from the meeting for the following item(s) of business on the grounds that, if the public and press were present, it would be likely that exempt information falling under the provisions of Schedule 12A, Part I, Paragraph 3 would be disclosed to them, and that in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.”
