Project: Proposed residential development of up to 62 dwellings

Land South of High Street, Milton-under-Wychwood

Client: Sharba Homes Ltd

The site is located on the south western edge of Milton-under-Wychwood, Oxfordshire to the south of the High Street opposite existing residential development and to the west of the existing properties which line Jubilee Lane. The main site area comprises a broadly rectangular parcel of land immediately adjacent to the existing urban edge to the full extent of both its north west and north east boundaries. Land to the west, and south of the immediate site boundaries and a smaller triangular parcel of land to the south east are also under the applicants control. Internally the proposed development area of the site is characterised by arable crops. While no existing PRoW traverse the proposed development area an existing PRoW lies some way to the south and east of the site.

The Landscape Masterplan incorporates a reduction in the number of proposed units from 70 down to 62, and the relocation of the site access, westwards towards the western site boundary in line with the existing, gated field access. Alongside this, new woodland copse planting, within the blue land, is located to the north west and south eastern areas. Further additional tree, shrub and hedge planting, increased from 5m to 8m width, is proposed to the western and southern site boundaries within open space.
