Alongside the comprehensive Outline Planning Application for the whole site, Bloor Homes Southern is preparing a Detailed Application for the northern parcel of land. This will look at development on the northern edge – along Monks Lane between Newbury College and Newbury Rugby Club – and will also include the development of the two accesses alongside a new primary school and up to 600 new homes.
We have also looked at what some of the houses may look like. We are using materials which reflect the local area. All houses are designed to be very energy efficiency, with insulation, double glazing, efficient appliances and water saving built in.
