Outline plans for 230 homes at the former RAF Upper Heyford airfield have been submitted to Cherwell District Council.

Richborough Estates and Lone Star Land have made the application for the 29-acre site on the edge of the village of Heyford Park.

A mix of one to five-bedroom market and affordable homes are planned with landscaping and public open spaces, children’s play areas and electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Access will be via Camp Road.

Marc Wilson, regional director for Richborough Estates, said: “We are pleased to have submitted this planning application in partnership with Lone Star Land, which has been shaped following extensive consultation.

“Our vision is to create to create a distinguishable and high-quality development, providing a range of new homes in a sustainable location. We look forward to working with Cherwell District Council to deliver this sustainable extension to the growing community at Heyford Park.”

Andy Wilkins, managing director of Lone Star Land, said: “We look forward to progressing this excellent new scheme through the planning process. As a landscape-led development, it will enhance existing green infrastructure while delivering much needed new homes for the district.”

A new village centre and green are currently being delivered on Camp Road.
