"OAKLEY ORCHARDS"  -  A NEW APPROACH TO PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW VILLAGE HALL, DOCTORS' SURGERY, CAR PARK AND 51 HOUSES ON THE ALLOTMENT FIELD BESIDE THE SCHOOL, ON BEAUMONT ROAD


Planning Permission was granted by TDC early in 2016 for a proposed development on the "Allotments Field" next to the village primary school. Changes since then in the property and investment markets  led to considerable changes in these proposals.
