Three plans for a total of up to 800 homes have been approved in three schemes on the edges of the Thames Valley region.

Guildford Borough Council’s planning committee approved London Strategic Land and Countryside’s plans for up to 520 homes plus open spaces, community facilities and six plots for travelling showpeople on land at Garlick’s Arch in Send Marsh at its June 9 meeting.

The committee then approved Crownhall Estates’ plans for 30 homes at Oldlands at  Burnt Common Lane in Ripley.

Both developments are expected to be completed by March 2025.

And on June 8, Swindon Borough Council’s planning committee approved plans by Gladman to build 250 homes at Shrivenham Road, Highworth.
