Detailed plans for the first phase of a major development in south Wokingham have been submitted.
David Wilson Homes Southern sent plans to Wokingham Borough Council with details about the first phase of homes, the 30-acre public parkland Buckhurst Meadows, the flood storage ponds and the start of the new Southern Distributor Road.
If approved, construction work is due to start this summer.
Outline planning consent for the first phase was granted in April. Buckhurst Farm forms part of the council’s Core Strategy to build 13,000 homes by 2026. Buckhurst Farm will feature one-bedroom apartments and two, three and four or more bedroom homes.
The development will also include dementia care housing, a school, multi-use games area with playing fields, a neighbourhood centre and country park featuring an allotment and community orchard.
A southern distributor road (SDR) will run from north to south, connecting London Road to Finchampstead Road.
