A DEVELOPER wants to build 30 homes on a site in Sonning Common earmarked for 22.
T A Fisher, of Theale, says it will be submitting a planning application to develop the 1.5-hectare site behind homes in Kennylands Road.
The land is known as SON5 in the village’s neighbourhood plan, which was approved in a referendum last month and officially adopted by South Oxfordshire District Council last week.
In a leaflet distributed to residents, the company says the site has room for the extra eight homes and the development would include some affordable housing.
Currently there is housing to the east of the site and the boundary of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the west.
The developer has previously built houses in Ilex Close and Butlers Yard in Peppard.
