Talks start on South Oxfordshire 4,000-homes plan

Talks have begun on plans to build more than 4,000 homes in South Oxfordshire.

A planning inspector has been appointed by the Secretary of State to look at the proposals which cover a period of 15 years.

A site north east of Didcot could provide 2,030 houses with about 300 more in the town centre.

The recommendations also include 400 homes at a site near Wallingford, 530 north west of Thame and 400 near Henley-on-Thames.

A South Oxfordshire District Council spokesman added that 750 other homes may be split across larger villages.

Head of planning Adrian Duffield said the talks taking place in the county were an important first step in determining the future of the plans.
