Proposed housing development on Woodstock Road

Developer MacKenzie Miller Homes are proposing a development of up to 28 properties in Charlbury. Half of these would be affordable homes. The majority of these properties would be located in the field neighbouring Cottsway’s garage site, with vehicular access off the Woodstock Road. MMH are currently working up the planning application package and will be ready to present their proposals at a meeting on Thursday 20th July at 5-7pm in the Memorial Hall.

Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting to review the proposals and to raise any concerns or queries. Ahead of the meeting we do not have any designs to share but can confirm that all construction traffic would be via the Woodstock Road and only a pedestrian link is proposed through the garage site into Hughes Close. A small number of properties (probably 4 maisonettes) will potentially be sited on the garage site itself which would be accessed from Hughes Close.

The meeting will start the consultation process and we do not have any firm timescales at this point. We are not looking to terminate the garage tenancies until planning has been granted.

This is the website for MacKenzie Miller Homes:

If residents wish to contact MMH ahead of the meeting the website contains a contact form. I am also attaching a little brochure which we can share with residents.

A site survey is proposed for the 20th July which may affect access to the garages on the day. Once this is confirmed we will write to all of our garage tenants to let them know. We have previously written to the immediate neighbours at 23 & 24 Hughes Close as well as a licence holder at 36 Little Lees. We are in direct contact with the latter as the development will impact on the land they are currently using.
