Homes built south of Thame would be more sustainable

The so-called scoping report looks at how sustainable the plans are and of four possibilities concludes that options to the south are the best for the town.

The sustainability appraisal is a separate process that runs alongside the production of the Thame Town Plan. The appraisal will be used to ensure that the final plan is the most sustainable option for the development of Thame.

The report is based on sustainablity issues and will be taken into account when the town plan is being drawn up.

However, the town plan will be based on more than just sustainibility issues.

Consultation is open regarding the report and the town council welcome residents’ thoughts.

Responses should be sent to or to the Town Hall.

Ensure sure your response has TTP SA Scoping in the title of the email.
