Banbury Road and Hill Rise Public Consultation

Since we last shared with you our intentions to build at the Hill Rise and Banbury Road sites we have carried out a housing needs survey and two public consultation events. Our appointed architects Pollard Thomas Edwards have utilised this feedback and we now wish to share with you our plans and further details for your comments.

Our proposals have been designed to respect and enhance the character of our local area. The designs respect the nearby heritage and conservation areas that Woodstock is famous for, providing generous outdoor spaces which compliment and preserve exisiting views and their natural habitats.

These new communities will provide a broad range of energy efficient homes with plenty of open space around them making walking, cycling and playing a part of everyday life. We aim to prioritise affordable homes for local people and key workers while enriching Woodstock and its surroundings.

What happens next?

We hope you find time to explore our plans and give us your comments before Friday 19 June.

Following this online public consultation we plan to submit planning applications during Summer 2020, with approval expected in November 2020.

Construction is anticipated to start in Spring 2021 for these new communities, with a predicted move in date for the first residents in Autumn 2021.
