Aylesbury Public Exhibition for 1st Reserved Matters Application

An exhibition giving people the chance to share their views on proposals to build up to 500 new homes is being held next month.

Developers Barratt Homes and Ashfield Land are currently consulting on plans to build the homes south of Bierton at ‘Kingsbrook’ and as part of the consultation a public exhibition is being held on Wednesday November 5 at the Holiday Inn, New Road, Aylesbury between 3pm and 8pm.

The application is for up to 500 new homes, including 110 affordable homes and this will form Oakfield Village.

The majority of the properties will be two-storey and semi-detached.

Also included in the plans are a new community centre, which could accommodate facilities for Thames Valley Police if required.

Project director at Barratt Homes Darren Farmer said: “We are committed to ensuring this development will be an attractive place to live, providing quality housing and open spaces which the wider community can enjoy.

“We appreciate local knowledge and look forward to discussing the proposals and listening to any suggestions that are raised by local residents.”

The proposed new homes are part of the Kingsbrook development, for which planning permission was granted by Aylesbury Vale District Council in December 2013.

Kingsbrook is set to feature 2,450 new homes, open space including a Regional Wetlands Park, community facilities including a doctor’s surgery and two new primary schools and 25 acres of employment land.
