Withycombe Drive

This was the first of a programme of replacement of existing post war steel-framed housing originally designed to have a short life span.

As a mixture of private and social tenure housing it was hoped to start a major regeneration programme in the Bretch Hill area of Banbury, where further similar opportunities for redevelopment of large house-plots still exist.

Built for Banbury Homes and now under the banner of Sanctuary Housing and Charter Community Homes, this model is currently being repeated elsewhere in Banbury to ever improving standards of energy efficiency and accessibility.
