The planning application for the field at the edge of Peachcroft is now underway. Letters have been sent by the Vale of White Horse to neighbours asking for comments.
A lot of the land for the Peachcroft Estate was owned by Radley College and developed back in the 1970s. Just one corner plot has remained, and for some years was protected by covenant.
Radley College would now like to develop that field for housing. The money raised would fund further development of the college but has raised some opposition from the local people.
The decision will be made in September.
