Developer Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has submitted an outline planning application to the West Oxfordshire District Council for the Oxfordshire Garden Village scheme in the UK.

Located to the north of Eynsham in West Oxfordshire, the project will deliver up to 2,200 new homes, green space, community amenities and a 27ha business park.

The masterplan includes provision for new primary and secondary schools, sports facilities, parks, allotments and 57,000m2 of employment space, which is designed to attract advanced manufacturing businesses.

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland strategic land project director Silvia Lazzerini said: “This application is the result of extensive dialogue with the community, council and stakeholders to make sure we understood and listened to local priorities and shaped our masterplan around them.

“The Oxfordshire Garden Village presents a fantastic opportunity to deliver the homes that the area needs. It is also a chance to set a new benchmark for what a sustainable, deliverable development at scale can look like.   

“From the outset, our vision has been to create a new community which respects the natural environment - a place where people and nature can not only live alongside one another, but actually thrive together. This outline masterplan is an early step on that journey to establish a neighbourhood that will grow and strengthen over time.”

Aecom is serving as a planning consultant for the project wile Terence O’Rourke is delivering design and master planning. Stantec is responsible for providing engineering support.

Grosvenor’s Strategic Land division aims to have at least 30,000 homes portfolio by 2023.

The scheme will also feature a network of green, segregated routes that will link homes and workplaces, including a dedicated cycleway to the local station.
