Davidsons Developments have submitted plans for the land opposite Winter Gardens Way right through to Warwick Road. All that can be said is ‘what a load of crap’
If you enlarge the image and take a close look you will see that a number of the houses have the main entrance open on to a new path that will run right on the edge of Dukes Meadow Drive. As residents of Hanwell Fields we all know the issues regarding parking. These plans will only encourage people to park on DMD out the front of their house.
The design and layout of the plans is not in keeping with current design and layout of Hanwell Fields. Nowhere along DMD do houses have main entrances open straight on to the edge of the main road. There is at least a 4m verge. These plans are dangerous and inconsiderate .

The Miller homes development to the west of Warwick road has been granted after an appeal. You can read the full transcript here.
Unfortunately it appears the planning inspector has agreed to allow the creation of an extra junction along Warwick Road instead of using the Hardwick roundabout. Though this is seen to be adding more housing to an already huge number it is hoped that this development would see off the expansion to the North of Hanwell Fields. This development is livable and in many ways makes sense. As we’ve always said we are not against house building just poorly planned ones. This fits in with the purpose of the Northern Boundary. The hope now, if somewhat of a gamble is that we can argue the 160 houses proposed by Amber and Rapleys to the north (which are very poorly planned) are no longer required as this site exceeds the additional numbers for BAN5.
Here are the plans that have been submitted from Framptons of Banbury for the Amber Development. For those that remember their exhibition in the community centre apparently only 12 people gave feedback. I think they’ve made this up. I have included this as well. It’s a joke really.
Plans have formally been submitted for 160 houses on the field opposite Wintergardens Way. The proposed housing continues along the edge of Dukes Meadow Drive up towards Warwick Road. Notices have been posted on the entrance to the field however I can’t find any details on the Council website.
Having seen the plans previously, the housing density is very high and overwhelming. Hanwell Fields already feels very compact and claustrophobic. The openness of the fields brings much needed relief to this density. We already have issues with housing numbers on this estate, too many cars and too few places to park them leading to many problems. This particular development will only aggravate this further. I object to all the developments but luckily the others are of sufficient distance away to not impose in such a severe way.
Shame on Framptons – A local planners who assist the demise of their own town.
