It appears that Vanderbilt Homes has purchased the land on the corner of Fieldside and Didcot Road to develop the housing estate which was given outline planning permission in January 2018.
According to the Vanderbilt website, the development of two, three, four and five bedroom homes will be launched in the Summer of next year.
The company’s advertising material promotes Long Wittenham as a “particularly desirable location, providing an authentic rural feel but within close commuting distance to the nearby economic centres of Oxford and Reading.”
However, the proposed launch date next Summer seems ambitious as the Parish Council has been advised that the company has to undertake a full archaeological survey of the site. The survey fieldwork is expected to take five weeks and the subsequent reporting will take up to a further twelve months assessment and nine months analysis, depending on what the archaeological survey unearths.
