Blenheim Estate Homes has submitted plans for up to 500 homes on land at Woodstock.

Under the developer’s plans for the site, which consists of arable fields to the east of Park View, half the homes will be affordable with 40 per cent discount on market rents.

The proposals submitted to Cherwell District Council will include educational, retail and commercial facilities, open spaces, play area, footpaths and cycleways.

A Blenheim Estate Homes spokesperson said: “A key aspect of the proposed masterplan is the inclusion of green corridors to allow for cycle and pedestrian access across the site and from it to the town and adjacent areas.

“This is complemented by the creation of a focal community park including areas of play and allotments, as well as an enhanced tree belt with native shrub swathes.

“New homes are required in Oxfordshire to respond to the housing crisis but these must recognise the varied needs of individuals in terms of size, type, and affordability.

“They must also respond to the climate crisis and be built to help reduce energy demands and the use of natural resources, whilst also promoting biodiversity and sustainable modes of transport.”

Subject to planning, the developer hopes to be on site by Spring 2024 with the scheme completed by 2034.
