Current Projects : Instructions and project planning progression


Banbury, Oxfordshire

Welcome to Manor Oak Homes’ public consultation website for our proposed new development at land off Dukes Meadow Drive, Banbury in Oxfordshire.

Our Vision: Manor Oak Homes are pleased to announce we will shortly be submitting a planning application for a development of up to 175 quality new houses including 30% affordable housing and public open space.

We welcome your views on our proposals

The Proposed Development

The proposed development will seek to deliver an attractively designed new residential scheme of circa 175 new homes comprising a range of house types, sizes and tenures. The Concept Masterplan has been sensitively designed to respect the surrounding settings and provide a landscape led approach to the development including:

  • The delivery of up to 175 quality new homes as a second phase to the recently approved 78 dwellings on Phase 1 to the south;
  • A mixed community including a range of smaller properties and family dwellings;
  • Development at an approximate density of 25-30dph similar to Phase 1 and similar to development to the east and west on Dukes Meadow Drive;
  • The provision of up to 53 affordable homes (30% of the total) including both social rented and shared ownership dwellings;
  • A layout which includes new trees and open space both around and throughout the development which will include a multi-use games area and new children’s play facilities;
  • A vehicular access drawn from the adjacent Dukes Meadow Drive / Lapsley Drive roundabout via the approved Phase 1;
  • The retention of all hedgerows and trees around the fringes of the site; and
  • An integrated drainage system designed to function in a similar fashion to the Phase 1 scheme using a series of surface ponds to ensure run off is managed at existing rates.

Public Consultation

Stakeholder engagement is a key part of the development process and we are interested to hear residents’ views, ideas and concerns. Alongside the leaflet informing residents near the site, we have set up this dedicated consultation page so that residents have the opportunity to ask questions, or to comment on the proposals prior to Manor Oak Homes submitting a planning application.

A comments form can be found below alongside a PDF copy of the leaflet and online exhibition boards. Please submit any comments you may have by 19th August 2022.

Data Protection: all contact details and comments will only be used expressly in connection with this consultation.

Next Steps

This consultation exercise precedes the submission of an outline planning application to Cherwell District Council which will seek permission for the principle of up to 175 dwellings along with access. All other details will be subject to reserved matters applications in future.

If the application is approved, it is envisaged that the development would follow these indicative timescales:

  • Outline planning permission issued: Winter 2022/23;
  • Detailed ‘Reserved Matters’ application: Spring 2023;
  • Reserved Matters planning permission: Autumn 2023;
  • Start on site: Winter 2023;
  • Site completion: Summer 2026

Residents in close proximity to the site should receive a formal invitation to respond to the application from Cherwell District Council upon the submission of the application. Any response you make will be made available to Manor Oak Homes accompanied by Officer advice explaining how we should address any issues raised.

Pre-Application Consultation closes 19th August
