Wallingford is a popular town in South Oxfordshire, located on the River Thames and dating back to mediaeval times. In recent years it has come under increasing pressure for residential development, and a number of locations for urban extensions of the tight mediaeval core have been considered.
On behalf of Croudace Strategic, our masterplanners and planning team prepared an initial vision document for a 55 hectare site, north of the town centre. The site is excellently located for strategic road links and within 10-15 minutes of the town centre and all community and educational services. The site can accommodate up to 1,100 homes together with a primary school, local centre, parks and shelter belts. In addition the development is buffered from the adjacent AONB by an extensive country park, which wraps around the northern part of the site.
