The Parish Council has been informed by South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) that the appeal by Manor Oak Homes for its planning application to build one hundred and fifty houses on a plot of land to the east of the B4012 (Lady Grove) has been allowed.
The orginal planning application, for one hundred and seventy six houses, was refused by SODC on 6th October 2020. In May 2021 Manor Oak Homes appealed the decision and produced an amended plan to build one hundred and fifty houses. The appeal enquiry took place in August.
The Parish Council objected to the original and amended plans on the grounds that they constituted over-development of the area and that they would add to the pressure on Long Wittenham from extra traffic generation.
