Sustainability Appraisals (SAs) are a requirement of a number of planning documents that we produce. SAs help us to fulfil the objective of achieving sustainable development in preparing our planning documents.
Following the completion of the SA scoping reports for the Affordable Housing SPD, the Natural Resource Impact Analysis SPD and the West End AAP we have decided that, for all future SA scoping reports, we will have one generic LDF scoping report. This view was reached because the SA scoping reports are very similar to each other and it was not considered appropriate or useful to continually consult on a virtually unchanged document.
The LDF SA scoping report below relates to the Core Strategy DPD, Parking Standards SPD and Planning Obligations SPD. The period for comments on the this Scoping Report has closed.
The Sustainability Appraisal of the Core Strategy is available below.

The Barton Area Action Plan will set the planning policy framework for the area. It will address the development of the site between Barton and Northway and will also look at how the benefits can be shared with neighbouring communities.
The West End Area Action Plan is the key document through which the vision and objectives for the West End can be secured and implemented. The AAP builds on the existing policies of the Oxford Local Plan 2001-2016 and develops a series of principles and design concepts to guide and control development and to resist schemes contrary to the overall vision for the West End.
The West End AAP was adopted in June 2008. The Scoping Report and the Sustainability Appraisal can be viewed below:
