A public inquiry into Oxford's new local plan is set to open next week. The plan was placed on deposit in June 2002 and the inquiry is expected to close in mid July, with an inspector's report timetabled for early next year. Oxford City Council claims that it is the first local development framework-style plan to reach inquiry stage. Planning policy manager Mark Jaggard said: "In preparing the local plan we have tried to embrace the new style of plan-making, not only by making the plan more focused and streamlined but also by speeding up the preparation process."
