Key considerations

  • The majority of the site is designated as an SNCI. The site lies within an area identified as a 'Water Vole Alert Area'. These areas were identified by the National Watervole Database and Mapping Project in 2012. This may require mitigation such as buffer strips along the length of the stream which should be considered in the design stage of any development
  • Linkages and improved connectivity to Wanborough train station and proposed new secondary school
