Catesby Estates and Carter Jonas have successfully completed the sale of an 8.5-acre site in Marcham, Oxfordshire, to Bloor Homes.

The Planning Committe at Vale of White Horse District Council followed the Planning Officer’s recommendation for approval and resolved to grant outline planning permission for up to 90 new homes in late 2021.

The site lies on the south east edge of Marcham to the south of the A415 Abingdon Road and is allocated for residential development in the Vale of White Horse Local Plan Part 2, adopted in 2019.

The consented development will deliver 35% affordable housing, public open space and significant wider highway improvements, including new and enhanced pedestrian and cycling infrastructure on the A415.

David Harper, Area Land Director at Catesby, said: “We and our planning consultants, Carter Jonas, have worked closely with the Council to bring forward this allocated site,

“…and carried out additional work to provide assurances to the Planning Committee that the impact on air quality in the area would be negligible, along with providing a series of public transport and highways safety improvements within the wider network.”

“We are pleased to have completed this sale to Bloor Homes, whose team ensured this sale went through quickly and efficiently, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”

James Bainbridge and James Cordery at Carter Jonas represented the landowners and Catesby Estates in the disposal of the site.
