Didcot Garden Town Team review their projects

The Didcot Garden Town team recently met with Homes England to go through more than 60 individual projects listed in the delivery plan, which covers the town, the wider Didcot area and surrounding villages, known as the area of influence.

Projects discussed included improving connections for cycle paths and developing the Gateway site - the area opposite Didcot Parkway station. The group also looked at and identified the need to engage with town and parish councils, the local community and businesses in the area of influence. More »

The ideas and projects raised at the Homes England meeting were discussed by the members of the Nominated Didcot Garden Town Advisory Board on 6 February to start to prioritise projects mentioned in the delivery plan.

Whilst the projects are being prioritised, the team will take into account the recent Housing Infrastructure Fund business case, submitted by Oxfordshire County Council to the government, on how to improve travel for residents, which will support the thousands of homes and jobs being created in the garden town area.

Cllr Ian Hudspeth, leader of Oxfordshire County Council, who chaired the Nominated Didcot Garden Town Advisory Board meeting, said: "The garden town team are making excellent progress on bringing the plan's vision into reality. Working together with Homes England and the community, we hope to find ways to unlock funding to help Didcot and the surrounding areas to grow in a much more cohesive way."

The nominated board is currently made up from Oxfordshire County, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District and Didcot Town Councils, the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and Homes England.

The garden town team will continue to work with Homes England and the nominated board on the many projects and work will be shared with local councils, the community and businesses in the future.
