72 acres promoted for residential development
The site is located to the south east of Burgh Heath, less than 1km from Kingswood mainline railway station and 5km from Junction 8 of the M25. Measuring approximately 29 hectares, Lightwood believe it is capable of accommodating c.400 homes.
The land is identified as not only Green Belt but also a being within an Area of Great Landscape value, but not AONB. The Area of Great Landscape Value is an extensive designation north of the M25. Lightwood believe that the AGLV designation t lacks credibility in respect of the site as it is distinct from that within the Green Belt and wider landscape designations.
Lightwood will be promoting its release from the Green Belt and subsequent allocation for residential use through the Local Plan process.
