AVDC approved the planning application for the residential development around the recreation ground just before Christmas. This development forms the last major parcel of residential land identified within the Pitstone Neighbourhood Plan. As part of the development, Nicholas King will be providing a multi-use ball-games court, new car parking, replacement woodland planting, footpath access through to Castlemead, primary and secondary educational contributions, sport & leisure contributions, additional on-site open space, affordable housing and a contribution to the Pitstone Safety Scheme.
AVDC had previously granted outline planning permission for a restaurant/café/pub and a private day nursery on the same overall site. It is our understanding that Nicholas King will be placing these commercial parcels of land onto the open market, and that any eventual owners would then submit for full planning/discharge of planning conditions.
Full details of all applications can be found on the AVDC planning portal.
