Planning success at North Wokingham

Allen Pyke continues to work on the strategic housing allocations at North Wokingham. Alongside assisting Crest Nicholson with handovers of their SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace), informal open space and wildlife areas at Kentwood Meadows, we have recently assisted Berkeley Homes in obtaining planning permission for their new housing and open space areas at Bell Farm.

The Bell Farm scheme includes an extensive area of open space, incorporating SANG, which will provide an enhanced sense of arrival when approaching the town from the North. New play elements and wildlife habitats, which respond to the topography, mature hedgerows and re-profiled existing Ashridge Stream will provide an attractive, sustainable, locally distinctive new neighbourhood whilst maximising the amenity and biodiversity value of the settlement edge.
