Stockham Farm, also known as Letcombe Fields (Bovis), King Alfred's Place (Abby Homes) and Downsview Park (Matthew Homes) comprises 380 homes near the Stockham Park Estate.
This area was marketed by Dandara and then each section was sold on to developers.
- First there was a planning application for 200 homes hear the A417 Denchworth Road. Vale Reference P12/V1240/FUL was approved in November 2012 and building is almost complete. There have however been significant problems ensuring that the access to the A417 was completed correctly, that S106 contributions were paid (several years late) and that the landscaping is still not complete.
- Dandara then applied for full planning permission for 90 new homes and enhanced landscaping along the canal on land to the north-west of the first phase of development. This application for what is being marketed as Downsview Park is available on the Council website with application reference P13/V1826/FUL. This site is in the final phases of development.
- In August 2014 a third application for a further 90 new homes to the south-west of the previous applications was submitted. Vale reference P14/V1810/FUL was approved in June 2015 and is currently being developed.
- In February 2020 another application was submitted for eight homes filling a small gap behind Fitzwaryn School and off the end of Lime Kiln. Vale reference P20/V0330/FUL is available for comment until 5 March 2020.
