Click here to read the invitation from Altitude (Ascot), the promoters of Oakfield Farm for development, to attend the public exhibition being held from 2pm-5pm this Friday 17th July 2015 and 10am-1pm on Saturday 18th July 2015 at Ascot Hall, Ascot Durning Library, High Street, Ascot SL5 7JF.
This is part of a further round of consultations on their emerging proposals to develop this site. The site is currently in use as a waste recycling centre, off Wells Lane. It is in a sensitive location as it is in Green Belt, part of the area that forms an important ‘gap’ that helps separate Ascot and Sunninghill, and also has a designated biodiversity green corridor running through it. On the positive side, the proposals would mean the waste recycling centre would go, to be replaced by a number of houses.
The size of the site and proposed development invoke Neighbourhood Plan policy NP/H1- Development Brief, requiring the promoter to consult with the local community and take our views into account in the proposals they finally submit in their planning application. So please, do go along to their public exhibition and contribute your views. To see a draft of the proposed site layout, click here.
Following the exhibition, an on-line feedback survey will also be available and we will put a link to this in a updated post.
