Developer submits plans for 177 homes

PLANS for 177 new homes in Benson have been submitted to South Oxfordshire District Council.

Graeme Dodd wants to build 125 new houses, 41 retirement flats and 11 retirement bungalows on land north of Littleworth Road, which is owned by his father-in-law Ray Stiles.

The scheme also includes plans for a football pitch, adventure play park, skate park, burial ground, allotment and nature park.

Mr Dodd has said the development would have 40 per cent affordable housing and fulfil the village’s “wish list” with space for various facilities.

The plans, drawn up by architects West Waddy ADP, were first revealed towards the end of last year.
