1,000 houses proposed at Alvescot Downs

An application for over 1,000 houses has been submitted at Alvescot Downs, Carterton. The site was rejected in the draft Local Plan but the Council's current lack of 5 Year Housing Supply could see it sneak through.

Published in News

The Vale of White Horse draft Local Plan is proposing 1,700 houses at seven sites in the Green Belt.   But it is also suggesting taking nearly 20 more sites out of the Green Belt to make development easier in the future.  How many holes can you put in a belt before it falls apart?  

Please respond to the consultation by 4 April.

'Staggering' Oxfordshire housing figures

Please let your District Councils know that these figures are not sound, not achievable and not wanted!

Wrong on housing, wrong on the countryside

Planning minister Nick Boles is wrong on housing, wrong on the countryside. His call to increase the urbanised area of England is provocative and unnecessary, and casts a shadow over at least 25% of our undisturbed countryside.

Objection to new homes in Ashbury

We have written to Vale of White Horse District Council (VWHDC) to register our objection at plans to build 17 new homes on land to west of the Idstone Road, Ashbury (application number P12/V2060/FUL).

CPRE often supports small developments in villages when the proposals are appropriately sited, as they can help to boost rural communities. But this proposal is not one of them.

This application proposes to build on greenfield agricultural land. We think that this is undesirable in every way in this historic landscape, just outside the Ashbury Conservation Area. The development would be outside the village built envelope, on a steep site and very visible from the west, and access would be difficult.

VWHDC's own conservation officer noted, in recommending refusal, that the development would 'extend the built up limits of the village on to an exposed site extending into the countryside', whilst ' not relating to the existing form of the village'.

No thanks.
