Contractors working for Taylor Wimpey have started clearing ground for the first phase of the 3,000 home Berryfields site, neat Aylesbury.

The first tranche of 384 new homes on the 187 hectare site will be ready for occupation next year.

Fellow site developers Kier Partnership Homes, Martin Grant Homes and Banner Homes will start work on the vast site later this year.

The housing scheme includes three schools – two primary schools and an Academy, as well a large food store and 10 retail units.

Berrryfield development details

    3000 new homes (30% affordable housing)
    Additional 10% low cost homes
    3 Schools with community wide facilities
    13 Equipped play areas
    30 hectares of parks & informal ‘open spaces’
    Riverside park area & landscaped ‘buffer’ zones
    Integrated network of footpaths, cycleways & bridleways
    New drainage and flood risk prevention
    Community centre
    District retail sector
    Community Arts funding
    9 hectares employment zone
    Infrastructure & access improvements

Martin Tett, head of Buckinghamshire County Counci planning, said: “We’ve not only made provisions for schools, community and adult learning facilities but we are also encouraging businesses to locate to the area as the development has nine hectares of land allocated for employment and a link road between the A41 and the A413.’

Ian Steed, area manager at the Homes and Communities Agency, said: “The HCA has worked closely with Aylesbury Vale District Council and our partners to unlock this important site after the economic downturn put plans on hold.

“I’m delighted that work is now underway and the local community will soon begin to benefit from sustainable and affordable places to live and work.”
