A new, 18-home estate has been recommended for Vale councillors to approve on Thursday, May 29, despite objections.

The estate, planned by Blue Cedar Homes, would be built on a green field in Stanford in the Vale, currently used as a paddock.

More than 100 residents have objected to the proposal, as well as Stanford Parish Council, but Vale of White Horse District Council planning officers have said there is no compelling reason to refuse the plan, which will help meet the district’s housing need.

The council’s planning committee will meet at Wantage Civic Hall from 6.30pm. The public are welcome.
