East Challow is growing

East Challow is a small village about 1 mile from the western edge of Wantage. It has a thriving primary school and village pub but limited other amenities. It is divided by the A417. Two developments have already been granted planning permission in the village.

The Nalder Estate development have built 71 homes (see no 2 on the map) and application P12/V1261/FUL, and 14 homes are being built on the old Country Club site in Woodhill Lane (see no 1 on the map) and application P08/V1169/FUL.

Applications has been approved for 38 homes on Challow Park, see the application on the Council website P17/V2502/RM, (see also no 3 on the map) and 88 homes on Park Farm (see no 4 on the map).

Now there is another application in for Park Farm, which takes about 3/4 of the existing approval (leaving 27 homes from that approval) and proposes 88 homes on the remaining site (which has approval for 61). See the picture below (of the new application) and the Council website for the approved application (P18/V0744/RM) and the new one (P18/V2049/FUL).

According to the 2011 census East Challow had a population of 769 and 313 homes and these applications will add over 200 more homes so these applications add nearly 70% to the size of the village and won't add useful things like a small shop or post-office.

Even the plan for a roundabout in the village to slow down the traffic has been rejected.
