The first phase has now been brought forward by David Wilson Homes and Barratt.

A formal planning application is expected next month.

3. 1,200 (plus) houses on land at Dalton Barracks - IN LOCAL PLAN

At Shippon, near Abingdon, the site is due to be vacated by the Ministry of Defence in 2029.

In anticipation Dalton Barracks, including Abingdon Airfield, features in Vale of White Horse District Council's Local Plan Part Two for 1,200 homes but there is potential for up to 4,500 in the coming years.

No formal plans have been submitted yet but there has already been controversy over the scheme.

4. 240 houses on land off Kennington Road - APPLICATION PENDING

Originally submitted in 2017, there were fears last summer that if the site was approved for development it would lead to 'a single field' separating Radley and Abingdon.

Campaigners also worried about the impact on wildlife. 

Despite the site being approved by Vale councillors in May last year, the application is still listed without a final decision on the Vale planning website.
