Anger at 1,400 homes plan

Proposals to build 1,400 homes around Boorley Green near Botley have been submitted for outline planning. The proposals, which could also pave the way for a new primary school, community hall, pub, supermarket, allotments and sports pitches, would change the look of the area.

Residents say developers shouldn't have put in a planning application in advance of a decision from a government inspector. While developers say the proposals will boost the local economy, those opposed see it as a threat to their community.
