Planning Update

On Monday 3rd November, the WODC Planning Committee debated two planning applications for housing development in Long Hanborough.

Planning Application From Pye Homes/Blenheim Estate to build 169 dwellings on land South of Witney Road, Long Hanborough

All 12 Councillors voted unanimously to defer a decision on this application

Planning Application From Savills/Corpus Christi College (Oxford) to build 68 dwellings on land to the East of Church Road, Long Hanborough

All 12 Councillors voted unanimously to defer a decision on this application 

What Happens Next?

Both planning applications will be debated again. No date has been set at the time of writing but the earliest date a decision can be made is January 5th.

NB. We are aware that further applications may be submitted in the near future for 100 more houses next to the train station and also for up to 200 more houses on land North of the A4095.

What can you do?

Keep on writing to the decision makers, whether you are for or against these proposals. So far over 520 local households have objected to these planning applications, but the deferral of these decisions means that there is still time to make your views known. The deferral of these decisions shows WODC are taking residents views seriously – this is not a done deal.
