Homes England is continuing to work on a revised scheme for Chalgrove Airfield to bring forward a new sustainable community that will provide much-needed housing and supporting infrastructure for the local area.
We are continuing to update survey work across the site and identify solutions that will enable us to address the complex technical issues and local concerns raised in response to the previous Outline Planning Application. This will ensure that alongside the building of new homes, we deliver on our commitment to safeguard Martin Baker’s operations on site, achieve a step change in active and sustainable transport use, address the challenges of climate change and to maximise the benefits from the scheme.
We remain committed to working with local communities and stakeholders to shape the proposals and will continue our engagement with South Oxfordshire District Council, Oxfordshire County Council, and other interested parties to ensure our revised plans support their priorities.
It is Homes England’s intention to consult on our revised plans by the end of 2023, as part of our long-term commitment to ensuring that Chalgrove provides for both existing and future residents and delivers against the original vision for a sustainable 21st Century Market Town. We will publish details of the consultation events later this year.
