Woodstock North is an extension to the historic West Oxfordshire town for client Blenheim Estate.
Our masterplan covers two sites, at Hill Rise and Banbury Road and on both there will be a broad range of energy efficient homes for people of all ages laid out on traditional streets with plenty of open space around them making walking, cycling and playing a part of everyday life.
Our aim is to prioritise affordable homes for local people and key workers. The proposals key into the council’s local plan for the area and, given it’s 15-minute neighbourhood principles, bring real momentum to VeloCity’s hypothetical infrastructure and connectivity outline for the same client.
Hill Rise provides 180 homes, with 250 at Banbury Road, with both designed as two-storey neighbourhoods in lush green landscapes. The homes, a mix of apartments, private and affordable dwellings, will be set within an intimate network of streets and built using natural materials softened with planting and trees, in keeping with the look and feel of historic Woodstock.
Footpaths pass by key features, that together with the design of the homes, define character, from new allotments and tree-lined avenues, to the stylish parking barns and a new public park. Banbury Road also includes affordable apartments, some specifically designed for older people with care provision too.
