The first major planning application on a site allocated for housing in the Thame Neighbourhood Plan has been approved. The application is the first to be judged against a Neighbourhood Plan.
South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee unanimously approved outline plans on the evening of 13th November, for 175 homes in Thame.
The Thame Neighbourhood Plan was ‘made’ by the council, meaning it was adopted into the local plan, in July having been approved by residents in a referendum in May.
Led by Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design, Thame Neighbourhood Plan is the first to allocate sites for development, proposing 775 homes on seven different sites around the town.
Applicants Commercial Estates Group and Christopher Holland applied to build the homes including open space on land west of Thame Park Road. The land is in site D in the Neighbourhood Plan where it is earmarked for 175 homes.
