Keep the green plea

RESIDENTS of South Oxfordshire are being urged to identify land which might be designated as “local green space”.

South Oxfordshire District Council has invited landowners to submit potential development sites for consideration in the emerging local plan for up to 2031.

The Open Spaces Society, a conservation body based in Henley, says the council should also be told of land which local communities value and would like to have protected.

Case officer Nicola Hodgson said: “We have been urging planning authorities to designate land as local green space to ensure that it has a measure of protection. The society is concerned that the flagship neighbourhood plan for Thame failed to adequately protect green space and we want to ensure that other communities fare better.”
