Aston Road Planning

Since outline planning permission was granted on the Aston Road site there has been continuing speculation about how the Diocese of Oxford will manage the development of the Glebe land.

The following is a statement received from David Mason, Director of Glebe and Buildings for the Diocese of Oxford.

"Further to the Secretary of State's decision, the Diocese is already in contact with representatives from the Parish Council to discuss the next steps and, in particular, the provision of public open space, play areas and the burial ground.

Over the next few months a housebuilder will be selected to manage the next steps (note — Lightwood Strategic are not housebuilders).

The planning permission on the Glebe and adjoining land is an outline one only, the appointed housebuilder will be required to consult with the Parish Council on the detailed application that will need to follow."
