Current Projects : Instructions and project planning progression


Deanshanger, Northamptonshire

Welcome to Manor Oak Homes’ public consultation website for our proposed new development at Land off Stratford road, Deanshanger 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 67 quality new houses and bungalows including 50% affordable housing and public open space.

We welcome your views on our proposals

The Proposed Development

The proposed development will seek to deliver an attractively designed new residential scheme of circa 67 new homes comprising a range of house types, sizes and tenures aimed at meeting the needs of all households in the village. There is a particular need for affordable housing which we will address by providing 50% of the houses as either Shared Ownership, Social Rent or First Homes.

The Concept Masterplan has been sensitively designed to respect the surrounding settings and provide a landscape led approach to the development including:

  • Access is taken off Stratford Road. Design of the access was adviced by a tree survey to ensure that the location is the most appropriate location with regard to the existing character of Stratford Road.
  • 67 units in total for the scheme with lower density housing to countryside edges.
  • 50% affordable housing in accordance with Policy H2 within West Northamptonshire JCS which covers South Northamptonshire rural areas.
  • A landscape buffer, incorporating structure planting and informal open space will be developed along the southern boundary, setting development back from the A422 corridor and ensuring a high quality environment in terms of amenity for new residents within the southern parcel.
  • The north eastern boundaries of the parcels will incorporate a landscaped buffer to ensure a defensible edge to the settlement is achieved and separation between Deanshanger and Old Stratford is maintained.
  • The eastern edge to the field is broken up with a series of “green fingers” of landscape space that extend into the scheme and soften the countryside edge and avoid a continuous built frontage.
  • The existing field boundary planting will be maintained and reinforced as part of the site-wide landscape strategy to ensure an appropriate landscape setting for the development is achieved.
  • Linear open space to the western boundary including wildflower meadow habitat area to the north-west
  • Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) located to southern boundary.
