Homes England support for infrastructure confirmed


29 June 2018 – Homes England to consult on Chalgrove Airfield proposals


We would like to work with local people to discuss our emerging proposals and to develop the right scheme for the site and area as a whole. Our next step will be to hold a public consultation on our emerging proposals.


As part of this, we are inviting local people to two consultation events:



  • Friday 13 July 2018 – 1600-2000 at Chalgrove Village Hall, Baronshurst Dr, Chalgrove, Oxford OX44 7TE


  • Saturday 14 July 2018 – 1000-1400 at Chalgrove Community Hall, High Street, Chalgrove, OX44 7ST



At the events, you’ll be able to find out more about our proposals, meet with the project team and ask questions, and share your views. We’ll also launch a dedicated consultation website on 16 July 2018:


Following the consultation, we’ll consider all the comments we receive and work up detailed proposals. These will be included in a planning application in autumn 2018.

Homes England support for infrastructure confirmed


Support to deliver road and transport infrastructure as part of proposals to develop Chalgrove Airfield has been confirmed by Homes England.


Homes England has informed South Oxfordshire that it would provide funding towards a number of important local projects as part of its proposal to deliver new homes, community facilities and employment space at Chalgrove Airfield.


To support South Oxfordshire’s housing ambitions, Homes England is working towards developing a planning application for the Chalgrove Airfield site, which would include:


  • Up to 3,000 new and affordable homes, in a range of sizes and tenure types.


  • A new secondary school and two new primary schools.


  • A new medical centre and community facilities.


  • Public open space throughout the development.


At the same time, Homes England is also working to develop a package of infrastructure in terms of roads, transport and utilities.


Support for infrastructure


Homes England has confirmed its support for the following areas as part of its proposals to develop Chalgrove Airfield:


  • New road infrastructure around Benson, Watlington and Stadhampton.


  • Public transport improvements to boost links between Chalgrove, Oxford and surrounding areas.


  • Improved pedestrian and cycle links around Chalgrove.



Homes England is also looking at possible measures to address HGV traffic and rat running and traffic flows around the Little Milton and Cuxham areas.


This letter to South Oxfordshire District Council contains more details.


A copy of the presentation given to councillors on Chalgrove Airfield can be found here.


Homes England continues to work closely with partners to determine exactly what infrastructure support is needed, and when.
