Land at Church Farm, Overstone.

Public Consultation

25th July 2020 - 25th August 2020

Overstone Parish Council has been made aware of 2 plots of land (approx. 26.5 acres in size) available for sale, located just to the North of Overstone Hall. The land in question forms part of the Church Farm fields and was recently subject to a 'failed' planning application by Barry Howard Homes to build 52 houses, as part of the 'Enabling Development' of Overstone Hall.

To mitigate against any further planning applications being made in this area, the council has made tentative enquiries about the possibility of purchasing this land for the Parish to use as a 'Green Space'*, with the long term intention of opening it up for public access, as a recreational area.
