CABI - WALLINGFORD, Oxfordshire presenting a compelling case.

Carmel Meadows, Wallingford

In August 2017, CALA Homes (Chiltern) secured planning permission for the development of 91 homes in Wallingford. The land was sold to CALA by the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI) to facilitate the construction of a new and bespoke global headquarters for the organisation, which currently occupies an outdated 1960s school building.

CABI is an international, not-for-profit inter-governmental organisation that improves people’s lives worldwide by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. CABI is a significant employer locally and had been working to secure its future on the Wallingford site for a decade.

Consent for the new development was granted following 18 months of planning negotiations, culminating in a Public Inquiry in July 2017 where CALA’s planning evidence was cross examined and tested in great detail.

The new development will deliver a state-of-the-art headquarters for CABI, securing the organisation’s future in the UK, as well as much needed, high quality new homes for the local area.In August 2017, CALA Homes (Chiltern) secured planning permission for the development of 91 homes in Wallingford.
