  • About the site

    The Development Site

    The proposed development site viewed from the A4421. Skimmingdish Lane cyclepath can be seen just beyond the gate, with the site itself between the low hedgerow, and residential properties to the south west of the site in the distance.

    The proposed development site comprises two fields bordered by mature trees and hedgerows on the north-eastern fringes of Bicester.

    The field in the north-western portion of the site is smaller and contains several mature trees, while the larger field to the south-east comprises mainly open grassland.

    The south-western boundary of the site adjoins the gardens of existing residential properties in Fulmar Close, Tangmere Close, Benson Close and Scampton Close, while the north-western boundary abuts the gardens of homes in Duxford Close.

    A drainage ditch runs along the site’s north-eastern boundary by the old Skimmingdish Lane, which is now used as a footpath and cycleway.

    Just a little further to the north-east lies the new A4421 Skimmingdish Lane, while beyond that to the north lies Bicester Airfield.

  • What's proposed

    Our proposals

    Working in consultation with Cherwell District Council the development of an inital layout plan for our proposed Skimmingdish Lane developemnt has evolved. The plan takes into account a range of issues determining how the proposed scheme will relate and respond to the characteristics of the site and its surroundings, including:

    • Vehicle access and traffic impact
    • Views to and from the site
    • Impact on neighbours
    • Flood risk and drainage
    • Wildlife and ecology
    • Pedestrian and cycle links
    • Accessibility to local facilities

    A planning application was submitted in May 2014 and approved December 2015.
