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 Persimmon Homes to promote a site for a new residential development with community facilities in Didcot, Oxfordshire, adjacent to the Great Western Park development. 

    Valley Park is located to the south of the A4130, next to the eastern edge of Great Western Park. 

    We expect to receive outline planning permission for Valley Park by the end of 2018, when the Vale of White Horse District Council considers our proposals for 4,254 homes – including 1,489 affordable properties – and community facilities, including two new primary schools, two, local centres, a community building, shops, sports facilities, playing fields and open spaces.

     

    Taylor Wimpey is now drawing up detailed plans for the first phase of Valley Park, which includes 293 new homes, of which 103 will be affordable properties.

     

    Public Exhibition

    Taylor Wimpey held a public exhibition to give the local community the opportunity to have its say on the first phase of the Valley Park development on Thursday 22nd November 2018 at the former Great Western Park Sales Centre.

  • 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 is allocated for residential development by the Vale of White Horse District Council and is expected to receive outline planning permission by the end of 2018.

     

    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
  • What's proposed

    About our proposals
