Site and context
Harrington is proposed as a new 21st century sustainable community with all the best attributes of a traditional small market town. Situated to the south of the A40 and in close proximity to Junction 7 of the M40, the land assembled to deliver Harrington is neither in the Oxford Green Belt nor the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Harrington is perfectly located to be a catalyst for the Oxfordshire-Buckinghamshire “Innovation Corridor”. Linking up Grove & Wantage in the west to Aylesbury in the east, the Innovation Corridor will improve connectivity between communities and science and innovation destinations including Harwell Campus, Culham Science Park and Westcott Venture Park.
Harrington will have everything in place for residents to lead a healthy, low carbon lifestyle in an enterprising and supportive new community. Applying principles of One Planet Living®, our ambition includes a commitment to sustainability, health and wellbeing, great community services, enhancing biodiversity and protecting the wider environment.
We are committed to working side-by-side with the local community to co-create a Vision for Harrington, designed to meet the needs of South Oxfordshire for years to come.
Please visit our dedicated website Harrington New Settlement for further details.
Working with the local community and our expert consultant team, we are bringing forward a proposed exemplar new settlement through the emerging Joint Local Plan between South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse District Councils.
