A new housing proposal – the biggest yet?

Adding to the proposals for Chailey House (30 houses; full application now awaiting decision) and Woodway Road (now possibly reduced to 40 houses) has come a proposal from Landmaze Limited and Fluid Architecture for land west of Bessels Way, behind and beyond Cossicle Mead. Initial communication from them mentioned 80 houses, but at the exhibition they put on at the Village Hall on 24 June this had risen to 105 houses. There’s a range of sizes, and 35% would apparently be ‘affordable’. An unusual ‘sweetener’ is an offer to gift Church Moor, north of the church, to the village to use as a public open space.

At the exhibition comments from the public on the initial plans were invited; you can see much of the documentation that was shown and also leave comments on their website, fluid-design.co.uk/blewbury-application.

Due to the size of the development they will probably have to do an Environmental Impact Assessment so it may be some time before a formal proposal is submitted.
