TIME is running out to have your say on amended plans for West Berkshire’s biggest residential development at Sandleford.
Plans to build up to 2,000 homes, two primary schools, and a country park off Monks Lane in south Newbury are currently being considered by West Berkshire Council.
Four access roads are being proposed from the site – two via Monks Lane, one via the A339 and another via the A343 Warren Road.
The council insists the development will only work with all four accesses, but developer Bloor Homes is adamant it can be achieved with two.
Bloor submitted two separate applications – a hybrid ‘masterplan’ of the entire site and detailed plans for the first phase of the application.
The plans have so far received hundreds of objections.
After feedback from the council, Bloor Homes has amended parts of the application which includes reducing the number of homes built in the first phase from 337 to 321.
The application is not expected to be decided until next year, but the deadline for comments on the amended plans is tomorrow (Friday).
