The character of the village would be changed by Vale of White Horse District Council's plans to expand the town of Didcot. Building development on a large area of land to the west of Didcot, to be known as Great West Park, would add 3,000 houses to Didcot. Further plans for 2010, to a further 3,000 or more houses as part of the South East regional development plan, will further change the nature of the villages that lie on the periphery of the town of Didcot.
