Gosford and Water Eaton Parish Council (GWEPC), following consultation with parishioners, objects to the planning application for the Oxford United Football Club (OUFC) Stadium. Whilst the design of the stadium appears to be to a suitable standard, it is the impact on the surrounding area which is our primary concern. Although the stadium itself is not located in our parish, it does however have a major impact on our community.

Local Plan: Gosford and Water Eaton has submitted a response to the local plan. Our response is here: Local Plan response Autumn 2023 

Houses: PR7a/ Hills Development has submitted its planning request to CDC for dwellings within the parish. As a council we have commented regarding the flats as they are out of keeping with the area and we have concerns over the height of the development. 

PR6a/Bellway Homes Development This development has grown from 600 houses to 800 houses.

You can read more about our proposals by visiting Cherwell District Council’s website where the application is available to view. As this is an outline application, more detailed aspects of the site’s design will be decided at a later stage during Reserved Matters applications.
