Developer resubmits homes bid

FRESH plans to redevelop CDR House in Goring have been put before South Oxfordshire District Council.

FRESH plans to redevelop CDR House in Goring have been put before South Oxfordshire District Council.

Bentier Homes, of Emmer Green, wants to demolish the abandoned office complex off Gatehampton Road and build nine houses in its place.

A terrace of six dwellings would be erected at the rear of the 0.23-hectare site, where the 624 sq m main building currently stands, with two semi-detached properties and a detached house near the entrance.

All the homes would have private gardens and the development would have a small public green.

There would be parking for 16 cars on the estate, including two disabled bays, plus a covered rack for 18 bicycles.



Bentier Homes was granted permission to convert the two-storey building into 10 flats last year.

The company says the revised scheme is of high quality and in a scale and style which is “respectful” of its neighbours.

Goring Parish Council will be invited to comment but won’t be able to formally object as the conversion would be covered by “permitted development” rights.

The council informally objected to the previous plans, citing the loss of employment land.

The office block was built in 1989 and was used by scientific research companies but has been vacant for several years.

The district council will make a decision by October 14.
