"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  - subject to agreement and conditions and approval of construction details. Changes since that time in the property development and investment markets have led to considerable changes in the proposals for the development.

For further insight into the new proposals visit the website of the developers now working with the landowner who have a section of their website devoted to their schemes for other places and also  specifically for their proposals in Great Oakley - click here to go to their webpage dealing specifically with plans for  Great Oakley and hear Peter Thompson's commentary.
