Witney new homes consultation

West Oxfordshire District Council is seeking comments on a major planning application, submitted by developers, for up to 1,000 new homes in Witney.

From Monday 23 January, details will be on the council website: www.westoxon.gov.uk and plans can also be viewed in person at the Council’s offices on New Yatt Road, Witney.

Comments on the planning application can be made from Monday 23 January. A date has not yet been set for the application to be considered by the Planning Committee, but it is likely to be early summer.

The proposed new development would see an expansion to the west side of Witney and deliver a new road junction between Downs Road and the A40 as well as a new school, land for businesses, community and leisure facilities and open space.

Cllr Warwick Robinson, Cabinet Member for Planning said, “This is a substantial application, providing additional housing and will have significant impact on the district. We welcome public interest and views from local residents, businesses and other interested organisations and groups so that we can make an informed decision.”
