Outline Application Submitted For Hollands Farm Allocation - May 2021

The proposals for up to 400 new homes and community facilities for land at Hollands Farm, Bourne End which underwent public consultation earlier this year, has now been formally submitted to Buckinghamshire Council. 

The outline planning application was validated on the 19th May following its submission in April.

Since the adoption of the Local Plan and allocation of the site known as Hollands Farm, Planning Officers at Buckinghamshire Council have been preparing a Development Brief for the site which sets out the key principles and objectives for future development.

Acting on behalf of the landowners of the site, Catesby Estates have worked closely with the Council, its officers and other local stakeholders to bring forward proposals since June 2019.

The Liaison Group which was involved in the preparation of the Development Brief, included representatives from Catesby Estates, Wooburn & Bourne End Parish Council, The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and Ward Councillors.

As a result, the Development Brief has benefited from several workshops, detailed technical evidence and substantial collaboration between the parties to bring forward the site for new homes.

The Development Brief that underwent public consultation, was the result of a number of months work and  benefited from several workshops exploring layouts and design of the site, discussions around detailed technical evidence, and substantial collaboration between all representatives of the Liaison Group and the Council.

As a result of the ongoing background work to the Development Brief which Catesby Estates was heavily involved with, an outline planning application was able to be prepared in tandem with the preparation of the Development Brief.  The application was further informed by feedback received during their consultation process.

Whilst the application has been submitted ahead of the formal adoption of the Development Brief, the Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) is at an advanced stage and undergone significant consultation from statutory consultees and the public over the last 2 years.

Catesby Estates will continue to work closely with the Council and carefully consider the adoption of the Development Brief, and where necessary update the outline application to respond to any changes during the determination process.

Application Reference Number: 21/06215/OUT

The application can be accessed here on the Buckinghamshire Council website.
