Dalton Barracks Garden Village
In June 2019, the site at Dalton Barracks was awarded garden village status.
This means the government will provide us with extra funding to help plan for new open spaces, high-quality housing, new employment opportunities and community facilities for residents and the wider community.
The council is now looking at how funding can be used in the most effective way towards turning the area, which is allocated as a development site in the Vale’s Local Plan, into a desirable garden village.
The team working on Dalton Barracks Garden Village will start to prepare guidance plans that include garden village principles, such as green spaces for a variety of uses, excellent community facilities, high-quality home designs and a well-connected network of walking, cycling and public transport routes to Abingdon and Oxford.
