Examination in Public – Update 28th July 2020

Today’s hearing has now concluded. It has been a full day of representations with the Inspector focusing on two main elements: is Chalgrove airfield a sustainable site for housing and is it deliverable? There were many fantastic contributions made in support of our cause, both from our village and the surrounding areas – huge thanks to all those concerned.

In concluding today’s hearing the Inspector commented and said he still had concerns with the overall deliverability of the site and he will be undertaking a site visit very shortly. The Examination will now continue for the rest of this week looking at other strategic sites. We will keep you informed of any updates and any indications that the Inspector may give as to his views on whether the draft local plan is sound or requires amendment.
