LAND OFF BARBY ROAD, Braunston, Northamptonshire

Welcome to Manor Oak Homes’ public consultation website for our proposed new development at land off Barby Road, Braunston in Northamptonshire.

Our Vision: Manor Oak Homes are pleased to announce we will shortly be submitting a planning application for a development of up to 29 quality new homes including market and affordable housing and public open space on land west of Barby Road in response to the recent housing needs survey.

Public Exhibition at the Village Hall on 10th January

The Proposed Development

The proposed development will seek to deliver an attractively designed new residential scheme of circa 29 new homes comprising a range of house types, sizes and tenures. The Concept Masterplan has been sensitively designed to respect the surrounding settings and provide a landscape led approach to the development including a mix of new homes that has been designed to meet local needs identified in the Braunston Parish Housing Needs Survey Report (HNS), comprising:

  • 19 dwellings for market sale in a mix that includes 12 bungalows and 7 houses.
  • 30% affordable housing in a mix designed to meet the identified need in the HNS.
  • One custom/self-build bungalow plot to meet the identified need in the HNS.
  • 50% of dwellings would meet M4(2) accessibility standards.
  • All dwellings will be designed to meet the governments Future Homes Standards for net zero carbon ready homes.
  • A sustainable drainage system (SuDS) that would utilise natural drainage features in the form of swales and basins along the northern site boundary.
  • Vehicular and pedestrian access from Barby Lane on the eastern site boundary with a footway extension / improvements connecting to existing provision and the potential for a direct footway connection to the recreation ground.
  • Public Open Space including new trees and shrubs.
