Crab Hill (Kingsgrove) - latest update 26 March 2020

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 must used before the end of 2021.)

The latest phase of development (Phase 1B) required a strategic change to the overall design strategy as it increases 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

The latest application for 102 homes in Phase 1B has been approved:(P19/V0565/RM).
The show home should be open early summer.
