A South Stoke Housing Needs Survey was commissioned in early 2019, conducted by Community First Oxfordshire, who have considerable experience in assessing local housing need.  A copy of their report is here:

South Stoke Housing Need Survey Report March 2019


Previous Information - Circa November 2018.

As all Parishioners will know, there was an Open Weekend held in the Village Hall on 3rd & 4th November, where the South Stoke Housing Development working group of the Parish Council, the Diocese and Rectory Homes presented the current draft housing development plans for the proposed 25 homes to be built on the Glebe field.

Some will not have been able to attend this and have not seen what was on display.  For this reason copies of the seven displays shown by Rectory Homes, and the additional three displays SSHDP showed are available here.

Please do see below for the displays.  A hard-copy will be available to look at in the Community Shop,

The document below contains the three SSHDP visual displays, which followed those presented by Rectory Homes, and which represented the history of the project - in draft layout form - from when Parishioners showed their preference for the 25 home option at the 2nd housing consultation in March and April 2017, to that presented by RH to-day.

Summary results of the three SSHDP consultations that we have held to-date:

  • 1st parish-wide SSHDP consultation, carried out in October 2015 - here.
  • 2nd parish-wide SSHDP consultation, carried out in March & April 2017 - here.  See below for the materials presented at that consultation.
  • 1st SSHDP Housing Needs Survey carried out in August 2017 - here.

Following the first parishioner consultation in the Autumn of 2015, when the majority of villagers expressed enthusiasm for additional housing in the village, the Parish Council working group for this project has been working with land-owners and other relevant organisations to come up with some potential options.  These were the subject of a second consultation, and the results of the exit poll formed support for recommendations that the working made to the Parish Council and the major land-owner concerned.  To view or download a copy of the presentation charts used,  please click here.
