Didcot - other developments

Here you can find out about the other development projects taking place in Didcot:

Didcot Parkway Station

Multi-storey car park

Great Western Railway (GWR) has built a new 1,800-space multi-storey car park at Didcot Parkway station. 

The new car park, situated on Foxhall Road, has been built to cater for the anticipated increase in rail customers as GWR launches its new Intercity Express trains and Electrostar local stopping services. 

For more information on opening times and fees please see the car park website

Land at the former Didcot A Power Station

Didcot A Power Station closed in March 2013 after 42 years of service. The closure of Didcot 'A' has released a large area of land for new uses. 

We are working with Vale of White Horse District Council and operators of Didcot B Power Station, RWE, to plan the demolition of Didcot A and the redevelopment of the site.

Applications for outline planning permission for up to 400 homes, large and medium space for business, a 150 bed hotel, pub/restaurant, open space and infrastructure were submitted to both us and the Vale in June 2015. You can see these proposals on our website and on the Vale's website.

North East Didcot site

This is a site has now started to be built and will feature 1,800 homes to the north east of Didcot, just north of the Ladygrove development.  The development will be built in stages and include a variety of new community facilities for new and existing residents to use.  

For more information please see the North East Didcot Partnership website.

Didcot Leisure Facility

It has been our aim for some time to bring a new leisure facility to a site in Didcot as part of our drive to make healthier, happier communities within our districts.

Government figures released last year show that ongoing funding is subject to change after 2019/20, so we’ve taken the prudent measure of removing Didcot Leisure Centre from the capital programme at this time, until we know more about the Government’s plans.

As part of a wider initiative relating to Didcot Garden Town, we are looking at how we collaborate with our partners including Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

We will update this page with more information about our plans when we have it.

Any questions please get in touch via activecommunities@southandvale.gov.uk.
