Outline Planning Application
This section provides information about Homes England’s Outline Planning Application that was submitted on 19 June 2020.
Homes England submitted an outline planning application for the Chalgrove Airfieldsite on the 19 June 2020 to South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC).
The application is for a residential led mixed used development that fully meets the policy requirements of the emerging South Oxfordshire District Plan 2034.
It establishes the key principles for development and sets out a number of parameters, which if approved will guide future detailed applications (called Reserved Matters). The parameters identify what can be built where, the height of buildings as well as other key design criteria which will inform the detailed design stage.
The below image is the illustrative masterplan which has been submitted with the Outline Planning Application. The masterplan demonstrates how a policy compliant scheme could be developed in accordance with the emerging local plan and the parameters that have been submitted.
The planning application has been validated by South Oxfordshire District Council and you can now view and make comments on Home England’s proposals here. You are able to make comments until 23 July 2020.
The outline application is the first of many planning applications that will be submitted in relation to the airfield’s development and there will be an opportunity for the local community and other stakeholders to comment on the detail at each stage.
