New Sandleford applications submitted
Two planning applications that will bring a total of 1,500 new homes to Sandleford Park were submitted to West Berkshire Council last week.
The applications are latest in the battle to build on the site and come just a few months after previous attempts at gaining approval were thrown out by the Council.
At the time West Berkshire Council listed 28 reasons why it was rejecting the proposals from Bloor Homes.
Last week the new application from Bloor for up to 1,000 properties, an 80-bed extra care home, a two-form entry primary school, expansion land for Park House School, a local centre with flexible commercial space and new access onto Monks Lane was submitted. As well as that the application also included open space with a new country park plus drainage and walking and cycling infrastructure and other works.
Donnington New Homes has also submitted an application for Sandleford Park West.
It plans up to 500 homes with a one-form entry primary school with land for its expansion to two-form entry, replacement and/or expansion land for Park House School, extra care elderly units, new access, a ‘recreational facility’ for families of children with special needs, green infrastructure including children’s play areas and informal open space plus pedestrian and cycle links, drainage and other infrastructure.
The two developers worked jointly on their plans and state in their applications that together, the two schemes will deliver a ‘holistically planned development’.
