Construction of 2,900-3,250 Residential Dwellings

This scenario would combine the delivery of the Bayswater land with the adjacent Wick Farm land to provide an overall total of 2,900-3,250 homes with associated community facilities…

…including a local centre, country and local park and a cemetery. This option is deliverable within the 2033 plan period and the identified land is under the control of only two land owners: Christ Church, Oxford promoted by Dorchester Residential Management and Wick Farming Limited promoted by Berkeley Strategic.
