An application for up to 175 homes at Sutton Courtenay, which was refused last year, has gone to appeal.

Vale of White Horse District Council’s planning committee refused the proposal by Roebuck Land and Planning to build on land north of Hobbyhorse Lane last November.

Reasons given were inadequate highways, poor public transport, contamination, odour, flooding and lack of an appropriate s106 agreement.

The decision went against officers’ recommendation.

A plan to build up to 200 homes on the site was refused in 2019.

Evidence needs to be submitted by August 15. No date has been set for the hearing.
