Are there plans to improve the A40?
Yes, the A40 will be dualled and widened as part of the proposals for Barnard Gate Garden Village. This will not only mean that the impact on the A40 from the proposals will be less, it will also be hugely beneficial for the wider area.
How will Barnard Gate Garden Village impact on schools within the area?
Two primary schools will be provided within Barnard Gate Garden Village, meaning that the Garden Village will have little, if any, impact on existing primary schools.
As for Secondary Schools, the preferred option identified by Oxfordshire County Council (the education authority) is that the pupils from this development could attend a new planned secondary school in Witney.
Will there be affordable housing in Barnard Gate Garden Village?
Yes, there will be affordable housing in Barnard Gate Garden Village. A variety of homes within a range of tenures will be provided. Affordable housing is the subject of ongoing discussions with the council
