Planning Policy References

National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Paragraph 94: 94. It is important that a sufficient choice of school places is available to meet the needs of existing and new communities. Local planning authorities should take a proactive, positive and collaborative approach to meeting this requirement, and to development that will widen choice in education. They should: a) give great weight to the need to create, expand or alter schools through the preparation of plans and decisions on applications; and b) work with schools promoters, delivery partners and statutory bodies to identify and resolve key planning issues before applications are submitted. Local Plan 6: District Wide Policies - Further and higher education provision 6.40 Growth in the Science Vale area is expected to lead to an increase in the number of jobs in high tech and science-based industries in the Vale. Core Policy 30 supports improvements to further and higher education facilities to help ensure local people have opportunities to gain the skills needed to access the jobs available and local employers have access to a suitably skilled local labour force. 6.41 Core Policy 30 identifies the most appropriate locations for further and higher education facilities. The Council will support, where consistent with the other relevant policies in this plan, the development and expansion of higher education facilities at Oxford Brookes University Harcourt Hill Campus and at Cranfield University (Defence Academy) at Watchfield. Core Policy 30: Further and Higher Education. The Council will support the development and enhancement of further and higher education facilities to help support the local economy and to ensure the local labour force is equipped to take advantage of the opportunities likely to arise in the future. The most appropriate locations for further and higher education provision are: i. by the extension or more intensive use of existing education or other suitable community facilities ii. within identified strategic employment locations, provided that the training offered is clearly relevant to meet the needs of businesses in that strategic employment location, and iii. in the main settlements and other locations with good pedestrian and cycle access and well served by public transport connections between the proposed facility and its likely student catchment.
