Ashfield Land and Barratt Homes have now submitted the first reserved matters application for Kingsbrook (Land East of Aylesbury).

The application is for 500 new homes, including up to 110 affordable homes, to form Oakfield Village. The majority of the new homes will be two storey detached and semi-detached homes and will reflect the local character.

Oakfield Village is based on the Garden City Movement, which will see two new parks created, Pavilion Park and Broughton Brook Park, together with the first phase of Canal Park and significant tree planting alongside all the highways.

In addition, there will be a new community centre, which has the potential to also accommodate facilities for Thames Valley Police if required.

Darren Farmer, Project Director at Barratt Homes comments:
“We are committed to ensuring this development will be an attractive place to live, providing quality housing and open spaces which the wider community can enjoy. We appreciate local knowledge and look forward to discussing the proposals and listening to any suggestions that are raised by local residents.”

Information is available to view on the project website www.kingsbrook-aylesbury.co.uk.
