The first of the new dwellings on the Morland Gardens development in South Abingdon are built and a sales office has opened. They are just off the, often congested, Drayton Road.
In Drayton, another development called Walnut Meadow is being built on the Abingdon Road (other end of same road).
Most of the villages around Abingdon have fought and failed to stop developments in the last 5 or 6 years since the government changed the rules. Just south of Drayton, residents of Milton Village are currently fighting 50+ new houses.
