Homes protest attracted 200

First published in Abingdon

NEARLY 200 concerned residents filled Abingdon's Guildhall to voice their fears about a major new development in the town.

A meeting was held on Saturday to discuss the plans by developers Hallam Land Management to build 160 homes off Drayton Road, to the south of the town.

The meeting was called by Oxford West and Abingdon MP Nicola Blackwood after residents raised concerns over an increase in traffic.

She said: “We know that the impact of 160 houses is going to be significant. Of course there needs to be housing built in the area but it doesn’t help anyone if the housing doesn’t have the infrastructure to support it.”

Hallam Land Management did not attend.
