New Schools Coming To Didcot

Oxfordshire County Council will on Monday launch a major public consultation to gain community views about what type of schools people would like to see opening in Great Western Park. Obviously residents of GWP should have their say, and with this in mind the publicity materials which contain details on the consultation and how to respond to it can be viewed and downloaded from the links provided below. Oxfordshire County Council are hoping to direct people mostly towards the website ( rather than distributing hard copies.

GWP Temporary Community Centre

During the meeting regarding the temporary community centre the overall opinion (of those who attended) was that the proposed size and layout was not suitable so SODC are taking this back to the developers.

In addition, this building was originally meant to be a temporary structure but it appears this is no longer the case so taking this into consideration it’s better the design is more suitable for long term use. Once the development hits 900 homes (occupied) the developers are required to start the larger community centre further south towards the Wantage Road (B4493).

Attached is the proposed outside space where the community centre will be sited.
