Plans for up to 370 homes have been submitted for land on the edge of Kidlington.

Barwood Development Securities and the trustees of the Philip King Homes Trust charity, have jointly applied to Cherwell District Council build on 27.75 hectares alongside Bicester Road on the southern edge of the village.

The outline application also includes sports pitches and a pavilion. Fifty per cent of the homes will be affordable. Oxford Parkway Station is at the southern end of the site.

The site, made up of three arable fields and surrounded by Bicester Road, Oxford Road and the A34, is part of a wider site which has been allocated for housing in the Cherwell Local Plan to help meet Oxford’s unmet housing needs.
