Upper Heyford, Cherwell
This Site is being promoted by Lone Star Land in association with Richborough Estates Ltd land holding immediately to the East. The application site lies to the north of Camp Road, on the eastern edge of Upper Heyford. To the west of the site lies a field which has been granted planning consent for 79 dwellings. To the north-west lies Letchmere Farm, and north-east of the site is the RAF airfield. To the south the site is bounded by an arable field, woodland, and some static park homes. The site is vacant, and measures approximately 11.69ha. The site is greenfield land and sits outside the conservation area.
The proposal is for the erection of approximately 210 residential dwellings, with a provision of public open space and affordable housing. The proposal includes new access roads and all other enabling works.
The proposed layout of the site reflects the historic character and its history as an airbase. The development will consist of a mix of housing densities and tenures, and affordable housing will make up approximately 35% of the development.
