Land off Denchworth Road
Together with our partner developer Persimmon Homes, we have submitted, and received approval for, an outline planning application for a major mixed-use development of approximately 2,500 homes plus schools, a local centre, a community park and public open space on the site of the former Grove Airfield, off Denchworth Road, Wantage.
The application was prepared following a period of extensive public engagement to give local people the opportunity to influence and comment upon the proposed scheme. This included a series of community workshops and exhibitions which took place between 2003 and 2007, and then a further public consultation event in June 2010 after our development masterplan had been refined.
We submitted our planning application to Vale of White Horse District Council in February 2012 and the Resolution to Grant Permission was approved in December 2013.
