A LAND investment company is attempting to get planning permission for 130 new homes in Oxfordshire – but has submitted its proposals in two separate plans.

London-based Providence Land Limited, which describes its entire business as 'buying and selling real estate', wants to get permission for the homes on two neighbouring plots of land in the village of Watlington.

The two developments off Cuxham Road and Pyrton Lane would look like one large estate, but the company has submitted two different planning applications to South Oxfordshire District Council.

Explaining its plans, the company said both sites had been outlined for housing in the Watlington Neighbourhood Plan and said 30 per cent of homes would be affordable.

It also said the new estates would include a 'green infrastructure network' including retained trees and hedgerows and retained areas of grassland.
