NO INFORMATION can be given out about potential housing sites that might be used for hundreds of thousands of new homes, the Government has said.
It wants to build one million new homes between Oxford and Cambridge before 2050.
About 100,000 homes are currently included in Oxfordshire councils’ Local Plans until the mid-2030s – but many more housing sites would be needed in the county to meet the Government’s target.
The Ministry of Housing (MHCLG) said all information returned by councils about potential housing sites ‘relates to the formulation and development of policy’ and is currently secret.
It was replying to a freedom of information request that it returned two and a half months late.
