Balliol Farm, Tackley

Disciplines involved:

EDP were appointed by Barwood Development Securities Ltd to provide soft environmental discipline input to support their planning application for a residential development at Tackley, West Oxfordshire. We acted on the site from the very early inception stage, advising on all aspects of the development.


Following early design, residential development of the project was restricted to the 90m contour to ensure the best ‘landscape fit’ for the proposal, and allowed us to be positive in presenting the proposal to the Local Planning Authority, conservation bodies and local people.


Despite favourable opinions from consultees, the scheme was refused at Planning Committee on landscape and heritage grounds. Barwood Development Securities Ltd appealed the decision, with EDP tasked with presenting the landscape and heritage case. The appeal was upheld by the inspector, both Barwood and EDP are looking forward to seeing the development come forward.
