Henley MP lambasts new housing numbers

JOHN Howell has criticised a report that says up to 825 new homes should be built in South Oxfordshire every year.

The Henley MP says the figure is too high and is calling on the Government to review the methods used to calculate it.

The report, called a strategic housing market assessment, was commissioned this year to determine the county’s housing needs until 2031.

Consultants G L Hearn, of London, carried it out on behalf of Oxfordshire’s four district councils and Oxford City Council.

The authorities are required to do so by the Government as part of their housing strategies.
