Development at the Radley Strategic Sites

North Abingdon site

The eastern part of this site lies within Radley parish, stretching from Peachcroft Farm to the Oxford Road.

CEG Land Promotions Ltd registered an application to develop 900 dwellings, 50 retirement homes and various other facilities on this site on 10 January 2017. The application was considered by the VWHDC Planning Committee on 26 July and outline permission granted on 27 October 2017. The application and its supporting plans and documents, the representations made and the case officer’s report can all be found on the VWHDC planning application register here under reference P17/V0050/O.

The next step is for the applicants to submit a further planning application covering reserved matters. The first phase of development is planned for the central part of the site lying to the west on the Oxford Road. It is unclear when work will actually start on site but is very unlikely to be before 2019.

Radley Parish Council is represented on a liaison group set up by CEG to keep the local community informed about progress. This meets roughly quarterly.

North West Radley site

Barton Willmore registered an outline application on behalf of Radley College to develop 240 dwellings on this site on 11 July 2017. The application and its supporting plans and documents can be found on the VWHDC planning register here under reference P17/V1894/O. RPC’s comments are among those included on the register.

RPC is involved in discussions with the planning officers about progress with the application, and is continuing to press the developer on certain matters. The application is expected to come before the VWHDC Planning Committee for decision in late January or February 2018.

South Kennington site

Redrow Homes registered a full application for development of 288 homes on this site on 7 November 2017. The application and its supporting documents and plans can be found on the VWHDC planning register here under reference P17/V2961/FUL. RPC’s comments on the application can be found along with others on the register.

RPC is involved in discussions with planning officers about progress with the application. It is likely to go to the VWHDC Planning Committee for decision in the spring or early summer of 2018.

Radley Parish Council worked with Kennington Parish Council and the United Benefice of Radley and Kennington to agree a Joint Position Statement on local priorities for the site. Amplification of the case for a community facility on the site is in a further joint paper here.
