  • Overview

    Overview

    Our Development Site

    We are currently planning on acquiring 32.76% of the Miller Homes site at Warwick Road, Banbury. This site benefits from outline planning permission. The site has outline planning consent for no more than 300 dwellings of which Taylor Wimpey are looking to build 98 of the 300 dwellings. Each parcel of the site will contain 30% affordable housing.

    Taylor Wimpey will be working in a consortium deal with Miller Homes to deliver the development. The new development will contain areas of open space with local play equipment, allotments and 500sqm of retail space as well as new housing for Banbury. The site will be accessed from two points from Warwick Road with one off the roundabout at Greenwood Centre and the other between Firtree Close and Ellison Drive.


  • About the site

    About the Site

    Development Site

    The site is currently an agricultural field that consists of a total of 29.6 acres. Taylor Wimpey portion of the site consists of 6.6 acres. The site is situated on the outskirts of Banbury just North West of the town within Cherwell District Council.

    The site is bordered by agricultural land to the North and West with new and existing residential development to the East and North Oxfordshire Academy to the South.

    The site benefits from outline planning permission for up to 300 units with Taylor Wimpey constructing 98 houses and Miller Homes building the remaining 202. The development will add to the further expansion of North West Banbury and bring much needed housing to the area.

    Flood Risk

    The entire site sits within Flood Zone 1 meaning there is very little risk of flooding.

    Accessibility

    The site will have two access points from Warwick Road. One access will be in the North-East Corner by creating a new entry/ exit on the western arm of the existing three-armed roundabout, and the second on the eastern boundary between Ellison Drive and Firtree Close.

    Ecology

    Due to hedgerows bordering the development site, care is to be taken during bird nesting season. The hedgerows that border the site will be kept as part of the development.

    A total of five badger setts were previously recorded on the site boundaries. An active sett was found in the south along the eastern boundary. Miller Homes have confirmed the active sett has been closed and the relevant planning condition discharged.

    There are 4 trees adjacent to our parcel in the North East that have limited potential for bat roosting. It has been recommended that these trees are retained. Care is to be taken to avoid direct lighting on the four trees.
