The proposed changes (modifications) to OPDC’s Local Plan are currently in the middle of a seven-week public consultation, which runs until 5th July. These modifications, together with the unmodified parts of the plan set out how, and where, OPDC expects to deliver 25,500 homes. These targets remain in compliance with those set out in the London Plan.
Of these homes, 13,800 are expected to be delivered within the next ten years and approximately 6,700 are already complete, under construction, have planning permission (or resolution to grant) or are at pre-application stage.
In parallel, OPDC is working on a business case to bring forward infrastructure investments and housing on government land.
