East Challow housing scheme set for approval despite objections
7:10am Thursday 13th September 2012 in News
PLANS for 71 new homes in East Challow look set to go ahead despite opposition.
Housing developer Bewley Homes wants to build a mix of flats and houses on the Nadler industrial estate in East Challow, to include 28 homes with affordable housing status. The estate would include footpaths, parking areas and open space with play equipment.
A decision was set to be made by the Vale of White Horse District council last night. Planning officers have recommended approval but both Wantage and East Challow parish councils are opposed to the development on the grounds of traffic considerations and the pressure it would place on local amenities.
