NEW potential housing sites a Government agency wants to build on across Oxfordshire have been unveiled.

Homes England has listed seven sites it wants to use on its website.

They include the former Jet Garage in Station Road in Didcot, which the agency expects to get planning permission for next year. That site measures 0.26 acres and is expected to be put on the market soon.

Other sites include 89 Station Road, known as the Labour Club, which Homes England also hopes to use for homes in 2020. That was sold in 2012.

Sites in Station Road that could be used for homes also include those at 91 and 93-95. They measure 0.04 acres and 0.1 acres respectively. They could also be built on in 2020/21.

Julian's Garage, in Lydalls Road, also in Didcot, is a site of 1.45 acres. That could be used for housing as soon as the end of this current year.

Another site, measuring 0.09 acres, at 5 Lydalls Road, could also be used. Housing could be complete by 2020.

Homes England is also leading on another effort to build housing at Chalgrove Airfield, which could see 3,000 homes there eventually.

Many residents are opposed to the plans. Some complain it will change the nature of the village, while ejector seat manufacturer Martin-Baker is worried its business would be badly affected.
