Following the presentation by CALA Homes to Haddenham Parish Council on Monday 6th February, the company has issued the following press release.

CALA Homes Chiltern has submitted its reserved matters planning application to Aylesbury Vale District Council for a development of 233 homes on Haddenham Airfield.

The site, which is to be named Aspen Park, was granted outline approval in September 2015 to bring a mixed-use scheme to the wider development. This included, amongst other things, a new care home, an extension to existing playing fields and a new sports pavilion, retail and employment units, and the provision of open space.

As part of CALA's reserved matters application, it is proposing to build an impressive range of high quality homes, from 1 to 5 bedroom properties, to suit a variety of house buyers. These will be sensitively designed to complement the characteristics of the wider village. 70 of the 233 homes will be allocated as affordable housing, to enable a genuine opportunity to access the housing ladder. These properties will be split between Affordable Rented and Shared Ownership dwellings.

CALA's proposal will not only deliver the total allocation of homes, but will also provide open space for families to enjoy along with an equipped play area, sports fields, as well as a financial contribution to the Parish Council to deliver a new sports pavilion.

Andrew Aldridge, Land Director at CALA Homes, said: "CALA Homes is committed to providing a high quality residential-led sustainable development at Aspen Park, Haddenham. Our development seeks to meet the needs of the local community whilst offering new families the opportunity to move to this spectacular semi-rural location. Our proposal is sympathetic to the existing character of the village and looks to complement and enhance this edge of settlement extension."

A planning decision is expected in late March. For any further information on this application or if you would like to get in touch with CALA Homes, please visit the website.
