Catesby Estates have a speculative planning application in for a green space near to Loyd Road, Didcot. Residents and interested parties have until July 12 to raise their objections to South Oxfordshire council. The local press has already picked up on the story. A target decision date has been given for early September.

Keep up to date via the Save Loyd Fields Facebook page.

Since moving to Didcot I am amazed at the amount of new housing being built, most driven by the gigantic Great Western Park development which seems to dwarf the town. That seems fairly well planned and logical, however now there is new scheme to build 135 new homes between a designated ‘green break’ between the outskirts of Didcot and the village of East Hagbourne by Catesby Estates.

I am no NIMBY but this scheme appears to trample over South Oxfordshire’s local plan and if you wish to object to the planning application you have until July 12 to lodge your views. There is a Facebook action page here and there is an excellent blog Mind The Green Gap that gives more information on this proposed development.
