Plans for a new housing development on a ‘horse paddock’ have been submitted.

Vistry Partnerships has submitted to Bucks Council a planning application for land north of Clay Hill and east of Clay Lane, in Booker.

Plans detail the ‘erection of 39 properties (19 affordable and shared ownership), including three blocks of flats (18 homes in total) and 20 houses and one bungalow, with an open space’.

New vehicle accesses from Clay Hill, and 93 parking spaces are also proposed.

The site is ‘primarily a greenfield paddock and informal open space with some brownfield’, which is “currently being used to graze horses”, according to council documents.

“The development will deliver a broad mixture of one, two, three and four-bedroom accommodation to respond directly to the affordable and market housing needs of the borough and suit a variety of family needs”, a design and access statement reads.

“The scheme will provide 49 per cent affordable housing provision in accordance with emerging council’s policy.”

It adds: “There will be a mixture of storey heights ranging from a two-storey flat block to a single-story bungalow.”

The applicant is now awaiting a decision from Bucks Council.
