The first application for this site, on land adjacent to Jersey Cottages on the Heyford Road, was for over 30 new homes, and was withdrawn in September 2015. The revised proposals reflect parishioner feedback on the 2015 scheme, and include a reduction in the number of new homes, the retention of the existing properties at Jersey Cottages and greater focus on the protection of the setting of Home Farm, which is a listed building. A Green area (“Town Green”) is proposed, to which the public will have access. Affordable housing provision at 35% of the number of units is mandatory because the number of new dwellings exceeds 10. The application will be determined by Cherwell District Council’s Planning Committee, probably on 18th May.
