HBAG - Chalgrove update April 2024

Homes England, who are proposing the development of 3,500 new homes on Chalgrove Airfield, will be holding a number of consultation meetings in the area to promote the scheme.


Haseley Brook Action Group have prepared a background briefing which you can find on the village website (link here).


In their most recent publicity, Homes England make no mention of the fact that the District Council have specifically dropped the scheme from the latest draft of the Local Plan - on the grounds that this allocation of housing is no longer necessary to meet their obligations, and is no longer consistent with the Council's strategy.  The District Council’s reasons for no longer including the development are set out here:


Following discussion at the Parish Council, we strongly supported this decision in our formal response, also citing significant problems with the development itself (especially over-development of Chalgrove, lack of essential transport infrastructure, flood risk, the steps that would need to be taken to mitigate the impact on the Martin Baker business currently located on the site).


Should you wish to respond to the invitation to comment being offered by Homes England, you can do so via their website (, or by attending one of the public events:

Thursday 18 April - 2.30pm to 7pm - Stadhampton Village Hall; 

Friday 19th April 11am - 3pm, John Hampden Hall, High St, Chalgrove; 

Saturday 20th April 10am - 2pm, John Hampden Hall, High St, Chalgrove; 

Tuesday 30th April, 6pm - 7pm, online event).


Haseley Brook Action Group will be happy to provide any more information you might want, to help you in any response you might wish to make: you can contact them on [email protected]


It is worth noting that a lack of response may be cited by the developer as a sign of tacit approval.
