Banbury Master Plan
Adrian Colwell will discuss the future growth of Banbury through the Local Plan and the associated Banbury Masterplan. He will ask Chamber members what more should be done by the Chamber and District Council to promote Banbury as a place to invest, visit and work so that Banbury continues to be a thriving Market Town?
Planning policies and practices shape development proposals for the physical and economic regeneration of the district. They cover everything from large redevelopment schemes to small housing developments, changes of use of commercial property and residential extensions.
Our planning service covers planning policy, development control and urban design. We also provide information for local land charge searches - relating to properties in the district and matters affecting them.
The economic development strategy builds upon the success of previous work, adding new insights and understanding that has resulted from discussions with businesses and partners, and innovative local research during a time of immense organisational, political and economic change.
There is a strong collective will to join together through formal structures, particularly the Cherwell Local Strategic Partnership and informally to maximise opportunities locally for the benefit of the district's businesses, employees, residents and visitors.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
