Woodstock East, Oxfordshire
The 16.7 hectare site lies immediately to the south-east of Woodstock near to the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace, and will be a natural extension and new quarter to the existing historic town. It is within walking and cycling distance of the town centre with a wide range of local services and amenities. The masterplan provides for up to 300 new homes, retail units set around a neighbourhood square, potential for education facilities and public open space. The development will include a substantial number of affordable dwellings interspersed within the mix of 1 and 2 bed apartments, 2 bed and 3 bed terrace and semi-detached houses, as well as larger 3, 4 and 5 bed family homes. The variety of dwelling types and sizes will ensure a balanced and mixed community. The Design Code draws on the characteristics of Woodstock and surrounding villages and sets out the architectural form and the use of materials for the whole site.
