Housing Proposal for SW Abinggdon

Posted By:

I'm not sure how aware people are of the new proposal for 1,500 new homes between South Abingdon and Drayton, a neighbour of ours delivered a leaflet with the Councils proposals for the Vale and it looks like we could loose yet more green space and gain yet more housing in our small historic market town. It seems to me Abingdon will soon morph into the surrounding villages and be so conjested it will be impossible to drive anywhere. Surely their time would be better spent rejouvenating the town centre than overloading it with yet more housing.

You can see the proposals for yourself (such as they are) on the website www.whitehorsedc.go.uk. The council want to hear feedback about this before Feb 27th, anyone wishing to comment should either write to Abbey House, Abingdon, OX14 3JE or e-mail planning.policy@whitehorsedc.gov.uk
