SITE IN A CONSENTED MAJOR DEVELOPMENT AREA
A site of approximately 2.7 acres set in a prime position in a consented major development area and suitable for residential / commercial development subject to planning permission. The site is very well connected to the A421 and road network.
The site includes a large 4 bedroom former farmhouse with attached cottage and extensive barns and outbuildings.
Land & Planning
The entire site sits surrounded by consented land for 1,855 dwellings on 3 sides, with land opposite being promoted as a similar scale major development area. It is in a strategically significant locations and suitable for a variety of uses subject to planning permission. Further information can be found in the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (Adopted September 21) and planning reference 15/00314/AOP.
Recent engagement with the Local Authority regarding potential re-development of the site has confirmed that:
“The site comprises a pocket of land which is surrounded by a major development application site and emerging Local Plan allocation D-NLV001 Salden Chase. The development of that major urban expansion would introduce a number of local facilities that would enhance the sustainability of the location.”
“…if the site were enclosed by the allocated site and facilities were in place that elevated the sustainability of the site, redevelopment of the existing buildings under emerging policy S7 would be subject to site-specific considerations…”
“It is possible that part of the wider area at the rear (northwest corner) of the site could have been incorporated into the adjacent area of residential developable land, as could some of the GI buffer proposed on the allocation site, to the northwest side of the enquiry site.”
“It is recognised that the site is currently occupied by a single dwelling house and a number of outbuildings which are of rural character (barns, stables, etc.). It is possible that, depending on the condition of those buildings, sensitive conversion with limited rebuilding and/or extension may be acceptable under emerging policy C1 (and AVDLP policy RA.11).”
Key issues that should be considered as part of any proposals for re-development of the site include:
- Visual and Landscape Impact, with reference to the Local Authority’s Strategic Landscape Appraisal
- The VALP allocation for Salden Chase and the reference to the ‘Not Built development’
- The retention of the trees along Weasel Lane and provision of a Green Infrastructure buffer along this boundary
- The BAP Habitat designation of the orchard area
- The access off Whaddon Road
- Historic planning permission for non-residential use with potential for re-development of any ‘brownfield land’
A substantial period farmhouse and attached cottage situated to one end of the site. The property has 4 principal spacious reception rooms and 4 bedrooms. See floorplan.

Former cattery / boarding kennels. An extensive area of 'built development' and central exercise area, extensive hardstanding area of vehicles with large turning circle.
