Blenheim Housing Development: Plans to Build 250 Homes Awaiting Comments

The above outline shows the extent of the new development, which will substantially increase the town's population.

Blenheim's planning application to develop 250 homes on land 'North of Banbury Road' is currently out for responses on the West Oxfordshire Council website:

In the search box type: 21/00217/OUT as the reference number to be shown all the publically available documentation for the proposed housing.

Residents have until 25 February 2021 to add their comments or objections to the proposal.

It is simple once on the planning website to add a comment of your own. Click the button with the blue speech bubble labelled “Make A Comment” and fill in the form.

I have reached out to Blenheim Palace, Woodstock Town Council, West Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council for comment. This article will be updated in the event they respond with any information.

Update (12/02/21):

Another planning application with reference number 21/00189/FUL has appeared on the planning website for 180 houses in Old Woodstock. This application has the closing date of 4 March. Comments are open until that time.
