Outline permission was granted for 1,500 homes to the East of Wantage in 2015.
This site should also deliver a primary school, a community centre, sports fields and pavilion as well as the Wantage Eastern Relief Road (for which £7.71m of the £15m cost is a grant from the Government which was supposed to be used before the end of 2021.)
Phase 1B required a strategic change to the overall design strategy as it increased the density and the height of new homes on the edge of the development nearest existing properties. This required a separate planning application; P19/V1269/FUL
Phase 4 Centre East is the newest phase to be planned. Taylor Wimpey will be building 171 dwellings and providing some public open space. For details see P20/V2756/RM.
Full permission for the first 70 homes (Phase 1A) was granted in Nov 2017 (P17/V1499/RM)
Phase 1B - 102 homes was approved in Oct 2019 (P19/V0565/RM)
