New development at Pembers Hill Park, Fair Oak
Construction work has started on an exciting new community at Pembers Hill Park, off Mortimers Lane in Fair Oak. The Council is working in partnership with Drew Smith Homes and Galliford Try Partnerships, to provide 242 new quality homes with a mix of tenures.
Through an innovative financial arrangement, the Council has ensured that the delivery of new homes has been speeded up and will be built to the right planning standards. The Council is also able to ensure that the necessary infrastructure and community benefits are in place. The amount of affordable housing has also been increased from 35% to 40% as a result of funding from the Council in the form of New Homes Bonus.
Financial contributions will also be made towards providing improved community facilities such as open spaces, play areas and public art. Improvements will also be made to existing footways, pedestrian access and crossing facilities, bus infrastructure, and road junctions. New access roads will be formed off Mortimers Lane, and is designed to enable smooth traffic movement around the estate.
