In early 2023 Nexus was instructed by Vistry Homes to co-ordinate the submission of three applications for parcels within the West Witney urban extension in West Oxfordshire. This comprised reserved matters applications for a sports pavilion and the local centre, and a full planning application for 74 homes.

The consultant team include Stantec (Design – Residential and Local Centre), Philipson Knowle (Design – Sports Pavilion), Hydrock (Transport and Drainage), IDP (Landscape), Ecology Solutions (Ecology) and Les Jephson (Noise)

Following positive pre-application discussions with the Council the applications were submitted in April 2023. During the determination period Nexus proactively monitored the consultation responses and liaised with the Council to address the issues that were raised. The reserved matters for the sports pavilion and the local centre were granted in September and November 2023 respectively. A resolution to grant approval for the residential development was obtained at committee in October 2023, with the permission being issued in May 2024 following completion of the Section 106 Agreement.
