The Botley SPD was adopted by cabinet last week. The official date will be 27 Jan 2016 (there’s a waiting period to see if the decision will be called in).
But the Main Thing* is the planning application (and accompanying Environmental Impact Assessment) expected from Mace about 1 Feb 2016. Vale will take a few days to check it, and then the public consultation will begin. The duration of the consultation is still not known.

I post information and interesting links when I come across them, mostly on Facebook. My public page https://www.facebook.com/DebbyHallettLD/ doesn’t require you to be a registered Facebook user. Check there often.
*The Main Thing is to keep the Main thing the Main Things. This is an oft repeated message to myself. In other words, don’t get distracted!
