Ptarmigan Land is now seeking to develop proposals for the Garden Village by working with the local community and other stakeholders to design a comprehensive masterplan for Mount Farm and the existing village of Berinsfield as required by SODC Local Plan policy. They have appointed JTP, architects and community planners, to facilitate the Community Planning Weekend as an opportunity for the community to share local knowledge and participate in shaping a new Vision and the final proposals.
There was an exhibition, minibus site visits and a chance to participate in workshops and hands-on planning groups. Participation was on a drop-in basis with no need to preregister. JTP team members were on hand to answer any questions throughout the event.
Report Back of Vision
Following the Community Planning Weekend, the Ptarmigan team reflected upon and summarised the outcomes to draw up an illustrated Vision for Berinsfield Garden Village, which was reported back to the community on Tuesday 18 April 2023, doors open at 6.45pm.
Outline Planning Application
After the report back of the Vision the Ptarmigan Team will continue working with stakeholders and the community to bring together an outline planning application for the site.
In June 2019, Berinsfield was awarded Garden Village status by the Government. The Garden Village includes undeveloped land to the east of the existing settlement on the former airfield which has been allocated in the South Oxfordshire District Council Local Plan (adopted December 2020, strategic allocation Policy STRAT10i). This land will provide new homes, employment space, services and facilities, all in support of the regeneration of Berinsfield and the delivery of the necessary community amenities.
