Developers seek outline planning permission to bring 30 new homes to Banbury area village

Developers have approached the parish council for a Banbury village about building 30 news homes

The company, Rectory Homes, recently delivered a presentation to representatives of the King's Sutton parish council about their plans to bring the homes to the village.

The developers advised King’s Sutton Parish Council that it is in the early stages of preparing an outline planning application for the residential development of a site located off Hampton Drive and adjacent to Blenheim Rise. The company’s plan is to build approximately 30 houses of which half would be “affordable” homes.

The parish council recently released some details about the developer's presentation.

The company said: “The intention is to develop roughly half the site for housing with the remainder used for the creation of new open space, habitat creation and other ecological enhancements.”
