220 additional homes planned for Sutton Courtenay

TheĀ  VOWH have published their local plan for 2031. Driven by Government policy they have decided we need another 220 houses as per the map below..
Notice how they have “forgotten” to show existing planning applications approved already along Milton Road, not to mention other large scale developments like Amey’s and the Catholic Church site.
That is a total of 475 new homes in a little over 3 years – A nearly 50% increase in the size of our village – and still no sign of infrastructure improvement.

One thought on “220 additional homes planned for Sutton Courtenay

  1. Thames Water has been pumping raw sewage from the All Saints Lane pumping station into tanker lorries for over 2 weeks now as the system can not cope.

    2 main roads out of our village have been closed twice for a week at a time due to recent flooding, a repeat from last year.

    What on earth makes the VOWH think that our village can cope with this onslaught of new homes?
    “Sustainable” – that word is a joke now.
