Working with Wates Developments Ltd, Redrow Homes and the project team, Boyer secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission, subject to conditions and S106, for a major strategically important development on an allocated site to the south-east of Bicester.

An allocation was secured for the site in the Local Plan and Boyer provided both planning and masterplanning services for an application that sought permission for up to 1,500 homes, approximately 7ha of employment space, a new school and a local centre. The development will provide a high quality new community with 55% of the site forming open space, including sports pitches, allotments, a new park, and a nature conservation area.

Wates Developments, Redrow Homes, Boyer and the project team worked closely with Cherwell District Council, Oxfordshire County Council, key stakeholders and local Parish Councils to reach this positive outcome.

Boyer will continue working with Wates Developments and Redrow Homes on this project and is excited to see the project through to the next stage.
