To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of any loss of green belt land as a result of the proposals in Cherwell District Council's Partial Review of Cherwell Local Plan 2011–2031 to build new housing on green belt land in Oxford; and what steps they intend to take in response to any such assessment.

Because of the Secretary of State’s quasi-judicial role in the planning system I am unable to comment on the detail or merits of individual development plans. National policy on Green Belts, and the Government’s expectations of how local authorities should protect them, are made clear in the National Planning Policy Framework, re-issued in February 2019.
