The North East Didcot Partnership, comprising the University of Reading and Croudace Homes, has submitted their proposals for a new and integrated community at North East Didcot. The plans, which include new homes, together with new primary and secondary schools, a sports centre and a wide array of other community facilities, will now be assessed by South Oxfordshire District Council. The planning application has been given the reference P15/S2902/O and can be viewed here

The proposals are in line with the Council’s Core Strategy, which has allocated the site for a new comprehensive development at North East Didcot to be delivered over the next ten years or so. The proposals enable the Council’s aspiration for a brand new leisure centre for the town, and over 9 hectares of sports pitches, to be delivered.

Many people have taken part in the various consultations over the last few years, including local residents, stakeholders, and governing bodies such as Didcot Town Council, Long Wittenham Parish Council, South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council, all genuinely helpful in trying to achieve a positive addition to Didcot.

The plans illustrate how the proposals could look and work as a new neighbourhood. They show how it would be integrated with Didcot and allow access to the surrounding countryside. The plans also include the infrastructure intended to be provided to support the new neighbourhood, and also existing residents nearby.
