Planning permission for the former WWII airfield in Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire, has been confirmed for housebuilder Hayfield
To retain its historic significance, Hayfield will be respectfully bringing some of the remaining buildings into the modern day, with careful refurbishment. Other historic structures will be brought back to life and used as informal recreation features, with informative boards explaining their heritage.
A pattern of walking routes will weave its way through Hayfield Green and along the airfield’s former taxiway so that residents, locals and visitors alike can partake on a historical journey of the site’s story. A new community hub will also be provided within the refurbished former Guard Room.
Mark Gay, Planning Director at Hayfield, said: “This is an incredibly exciting project for us to work on.
“We fully embraced the challenges that came with incorporating the past with the future of this former airfield, working hard to safeguard it and ensure that this is maintained with integrity.”
A range of house types will be on offer at Hayfield Green, from 2 bedroom bungalows to 5 bedroom detached family homes, each with spacious gardens and private parking.
With planning permission confirmed, Hayfield is aiming towards an off-plan launch in April 2019, with a show home opening in the summer.
