A planning application involving four parties has been submitted which will deliver a school, community hub and 45 homes and see two old buildings converted into two more.

Wittenham Parish Council, along with Thomas Homes and land owners Oxfordshire County Council and the Diocese of Oxford, has applied to South Oxfordshire District Council to build the new development across three sites in the village.

It means the Victorian Long Wittenham Church of England Primary School and Long Wittenham Village Hall (pictured) will each be converted into a house while a new school, nursery and community hub with sports pitches will be built alongside 45 new homes on land at Rosehurst Farm off nearby Didcot Road.

The existing school site will be extended to form a four-bedroom house while the village hall will become a three-bedroom house. The three sites total 5.92 hectares.

The project team on the scheme, which has been being consulted on since 2017, involves Turley on planning, Thomas Homes and Briel Design on architecture and Dalmore Land as project manager.
