Masterplan Proposals

The Masterplan, which comprises a site area of approx. 400 hectares (1,000 acres), is intended to set out the framework for the future eco town and will be used to help guide all future planning applications.

We have been working with a range of local representatives and organisations to develop the wider North West Bicester masterplan and have now submitted three planning applications following wider public feedback on a number of key aspects; most notably:

  • The nature of the open spaces and the form these should take and what should also be included
  • The location of and form the proposed community hubs should take
  • The transport links proposed, including the realignment of Howes Lane and the scheme’s access arrangements with the town
  • The location and nature of the proposed employment space
