Valley Park

Valley Park - off the A4130 - Didcot - Oxfordshire

Together with our development partners we are seeking approval for a new residential development with community facilities on the western edge of Didcot, Oxfordshire.

  • Overview

    Land at Valley Park

    We are working in partnership with Hallam Land and Persimmon Homes to promote a site for a new residential development with community facilities at Didcot, Oxfordshire, adjacent to the Great Western Park development

    Valley Park is located to the south of the A4130, adjacent to the eastern edge of Great Western Park. The proposed development will include up to 4,200 new homes together with primary schools, a community building, two local centres and associated community infrastructure.

    We and our partners have carried out extensive public consultation, giving the local community the opportunity to comment on and influence the proposals.

    A planning application was submitted to the Vale of White Horse District Council in December 2014 and we are currently in the process of negotiating planning permission for the proposed scheme. It is anticipated that approval will be given in mid 2016.

  • About the site

    The proposed development site

    The proposed development covers an area of approximately 178 hectares and is located south of the A4130, west of Great Western Park.

    The site falls within an area allocated for residential development by the Vale of White Horse District Council.

    A number of detailed technical assessments have been carried out as part of the pre- and post-application process to ensure that our proposals identify and mitigate where possible any effects of the proposed development. The studies include: 

    • Flood risk assessment and drainage strategy
    • Access and transport arrangements, together with comprehensive traffic modelling for the area local to the site
    • Landscape and ecological surveys
    • Topographical surveys
    • Landscape and visual assessment
    • Heritage and archaeological assessments
