Chalgrove Airfield Homes England

Plans for a new town including 3,000 new homes in Oxfordshire have been lodged by Homes England, as they submit an outline planning application to South Oxfordshire District Council.

The former Chalgrove Airfield site are planning to bring forward a new community development on the site. Plans include:

  • 3,000 new homes
  • Town centre
  • 5-hectares of employment land

  • 2 primary schools
  • 1 secondary school
  • 1 sixth form college
  • Infrastructure including bypass for access to nearby villages

Homes England are speaking at our upcoming Garden Cities & New Towns Development Conference to discuss this and numerous other schemes.

Ken Glendinning, Project Director at Homes England, said: “This development will support South Oxfordshire District Council to meet the unmet housing need of the area at the same time as protecting the green belt and safeguarding local jobs.”

A compulsory purchase order would be needed to enable the project to go forward, as ejector seat manufacturer Martin-Baker currently owns part of the plot, but the majority of land is owned by Homes England with the Ministry of Defence transferring the site to them in 2016.

The site is included in South Oxfordshire District Council’s Local Plan.
