RESIDENTS can have their say on a key Witney site earmarked for 450 homes and new A40 slip roads.

West Oxfordshire District Council has launched a consultation on the East Witney Strategic Development site to collect views on the main issues and opportunities facing the area.

The council wants to know the type of housing favoured by residents and find out opinions on other features, including a potential new community hub.

Jeff Haine, cabinet member for strategic planning, said: “The opinions we receive through this consultation will help us to prepare a supplementary planning document which, in turn, is essential for guiding the development of this important site.

"We know that the people of West Oxfordshire care deeply about the area and want the chance to have their say on how the future will look and this is it.

"So, please get involved and let us know what would make this development site the best it can be.”

The consultation runs until July 17 and includes an exhibition at Cogges Manor Farm on Thursday, July 4.
