About the Site

The entire site is in private ownership and is inaccessible to the general public without permission with the exception of a small dog walking area adjacent to Upper Sunbury Road.

The site has been previously been extensively worked for sand and gravel extraction. The extraction areas have been backfilled with predominately inert construction material.

The site is currently designated as Metropolitan Green Belt, which is protected by national planning policy from most types of development. However, the site also includes previously developed, brownfield land.

Green Belt boundaries can be altered as part of a Local Plan review process in response to local development needs.
