About the application proposals
We’ve been working on creating a Masterplan for North West Bicester to establish a vision, policy and evidence to guide future planning applications. With the Masterplan submitted to the council in May 2014, we’ve now submitted two outline planning applications for 509 acres of the North West Bicester Masterplan.
The outline planning applications comprise:
- 382.6 acres north of Lords Lane (outline application 1)
- 126.7 acres north of Howes Lane (outline application 2)
In total, they seek planning permission for circa 3,500 true zero carbon homes, including 30% affordable and extra care apartments for the elderly. The outline applications also include around 193 acres of open and green spaces, community, retail, business and leisure space together with two-form entry primary schools and one secondary school.
A2Dominion is continuing to work with Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council to develop a detailed planning application for the realignment of Howes Lane to create a strategic link road for the wider town. This application was submitted in Autumn 2014.
