Masterplan Framework Document

In Spring 2023, the Berinsfield community was invited by JTP on behalf of Ptarmigan Land to the Berinsfield Garden Village Community Planning Weekend to help shape a Vision for the future of the Garden Village, including the area of undeveloped land on the former Mount Farm airfield. Since then, the Ptarmigan team has been working on refining the proposals into a comprehensive plan, now known as the Land at Mount Farm, Berinsfield Garden Village, Masterplan Framework Document (MFD). The draft MFD exhibition was held on Tuesday 23 January 2024 at the Berinsfield Community Association. Following analysis of comments received by the Ptarmigan team and further work on the MFD, the document was submitted to SODC in early May 2024.

About

In June 2019, Berinsfield was awarded Garden Village status by the Government. The Garden Village includes undeveloped land to the east of the existing settlement on the former airfield which has been allocated in the South Oxfordshire District Council (SOCD) Local Plan (adopted December 2020, strategic allocation Policy STRAT10i). This land will provide new homes, employment space, services and facilities, all in support of the regeneration of Berinsfield and the delivery of the necessary community amenities.

Ptarmigan Land is currently seeking to develop proposals for the Garden Village by working with the local community and other stakeholders to design a comprehensive masterplan for Mount Farm and the existing village of Berinsfield as required by SODC Local Plan policy. They have appointed JTP, architects and community planners, to facilitate the Community Planning process as an opportunity for the community to share local knowledge and participate in shaping a new Vision and the final proposals.

Community Engagement

A Vision for Berinsfield Garden Village Community Planning Weekend, March and April 2023

On Friday 31 March and Saturday 1 April 2023 the local community was invited by Ptarmigan Land to the Berinsfield Garden Village Community Planning Weekend workshops & exhibition to help design a comprehensive masterplan for the Mount Farm site and the existing village of Berinsfield.

At the Community Planning Weekend there was an exhibition, minibus site visits and a chance to participate in workshops and hands-on planning groups. JTP team members were on hand to answer any questions throughout the event.

Report Back Of the Vision, April 2023

Following the Community Planning Weekend, the Ptarmigan team reflected on and summarised the outcomes and drew up an illustrated Vision for Berinsfield Garden Village, which was reported back to the community on Tuesday evening, 18 April 2023. The presentation material can be seen in the downloads section below.

Berinsfield Village Fete, June 2023

On Saturday 24 June 2023, the Ptarmigan team were at the Berinsfield Village Fete from 11am to 2pm for another chance to view the Vision exhibition for Berinsfield Garden Village.

Masterplan Framework Document Public Exhibition, January 2024

Following the Berinsfield Garden Village Community Planning Weekend, the Ptarmigan Team continued working with stakeholders and the community to refine the proposals into a comprehensive Masterplan Framework Document. The emerging proposals were exhibited on Tuesday 23 January 2024 at the Berinsfield Community Association.

After the public exhibition, the Ptarmigan team assessed the comments received and made revisions as appropriate, before submitting the MFD to South Oxfordshire District Council in May 2024. Download the document here.

The MFD stage will be followed by an Outline Planning Application for the site, which will include further opportunities for the public to comment and influence proposals for the site.

What is the Masterplan Framework Document (MFD)?

The Masterplan Framework Document (MFD) provides the building blocks for how the community at Berinsfield will be brought forwards, focusing on key topic areas such as landscape, transport and movement, community and stewardship. It will inform the future Outline Planning Application on site.
