Bints Yard, Northmoor
West Oxfordshire District Council has resolved to grant planning permission for 8 new dwellings (5 of which are intended to be affordable) on an existing industrial site at Chapel Lane in Northmoor, subject to the completion of a legal agreement to secure the affordable housing.
The scheme makes use of a derelict site, whose former use was for storage and haulage. Members and Officers agreed that the proposed use would enhance the character of the area, bringing about significant environmental improvements and result in lessened pressure on the local road network when compared to the existing lawful use of the site. Whilst Northmoor is not identified in the current local development plan as a location where such a scale of new housing would be acceptable ordinarily, a clear benefit was demonstrated in the provision of affordable housing to maintain local services.
