175/23 PLANNING APPLICATIONS AND APPEALS
Land to the West of Wallingford (Site B) Wallingford, OX10 0ND
Reserved matters application for approval of appearance, landscaping, layout and scale pursuant to outline permission P14/S2860/O (Residential development comprising 555 dwellings, a one form entry primary school, associated landscaping and open spaces, construction of a new access onto the A4130 Calvin Thomas Way/Bosley Way, construction of a public transport link/emergency access onto Wantage Road and other supporting infrastructure works and facilities) (as amended and amplified by plans received 26 June 2023).
It was proposed by Councillor Hoskins, and seconded by Councillor Hughes, and RECOMMENDED that the application be refused at the present time until the concerns of neighbouring residents in Chiltern Crescent are satisfactorily resolved. In particular, the Town Council requests that the height of the unit overlooking Number 53 Chiltern Crescent is reduced to single storey as was originally proposed and that the north-east corner of the site be redesigned to remove the need for a parking court along the boundary with properties in Chiltern Crescent. Additionally, the Town Council requests that the developers put in place measures to protect the two-metre wide green corridor of Footpath 16 and satisfactory measures to mitigate against on-verge car parking.
