'105 new houses should be spread across sites'

A COMMUNITY group says new homes in Goring should be spread over multiple sites.

A COMMUNITY group says new homes in Goring should be spread over multiple sites.

The Goring and Streatley Amenity Association was responding to a public consultation, which closed yesterday.

South Oxfordshire District Council must find space for 105 homes by 2027 to meet national targets. It was asking people’s views on four shortlisted sites: land at the north end of the village off Wallingford Road, land to the north of Springhill Road, a small area behind the fire station in Icknield Road and land between between Manor Road and Elmcroft.

The association said new homes could be split between the Springhill Road and fire station sites. Although the Wallingford Road site is furthest from the village centre, it said this could also be used to keep densities low.

It said Goring could not take more than 105 new homes and the district council should meet any increase in its target by allowing more “infill” development in smaller villages.
