The northern boundary oi the site is lormed by a wooden post and rail tence at its westernmost end, and a hedgerow screen along the remainder. Holly Lane immediately to the nonh oi the site [I1 comprises a row of mature trees within a grass verge which gives it a single sided avenue character, with a tree lined hedgerow along the northern edge ol the carriageway which has a rural lane character [2] At the easlern end of the northern boundary at the entrance to the public right or way there is denser tree screening to the site [SI The landscape to the east 0! the site is characterised by areas or gently undulating open meadow, stands oi trees. wooded areas, smaller cnpses and tree lined hedgerows along tield boundaries. The landscape along the eastern boundary includes the iollowing - Dense tree lined hedgerow at its northern end between the driving range and the public right at way a More open baundary with law shrubs south 0! the driving range [A] - Dense tree lined hedgerow adiacent to the existing pond with ditch below [5] - Generally dense tree lined hedgerow enclosure and screening to the remainder ol the eastern and southern boundaries lol Along the western boundary oi the site. there are various landscape ieatures including - lnlorrnal tree planting on a mangle oi land west 0! Fairlarids Farm l7i - An established hedgerow to the south or Falrlands Farm which separates a small wedge shaped pasture on the A323 side from Ihe golf course to the east - A row oi broadleaved trees directly opposite the access iuriction into Fairlands [B] - The eastern irontage to Falrlands has rows oi mature trees along the verge between the slip roads servicing the housing and the A323 carriageway - A small oopse between the two existing properties [V] A strong wedge or woodland separates the southern tip or the site trorn the eastern edge or Fairlands within the site there are a two established tree—llned hedgerows within the southern part. rhe southern rnost uf these has a ditch below it (in) otherwise. a large part or the topography and landscaping within the stte is artificial" as part of the golt course design There are however a number or individual mature trees oi high quality, some or which have Tree Preservation orders imposed upon therri ll ll. These would be retained and integrated within the public realm to the new neighbourhood Because oi the presence oi dense vegetative screening along a high proportion oi the boundaries to the site 112], views oi the development would generally be screened irom the surrounding area

This will evolve as the scheme develcips, and the proposals wtll he shaped by the cumments made by local people, statutory ronsultees and the CDUl'(ll, as well as being informed by detailed studies as these are completed, The inasterplan has evolved irom the analysts ol the site and its context, and responds to its key constraints and opportunities. Each oi the main elements is described below. A new netghtioiirhood is proposed. designed as an extension to the existing settlement at Fairlands. tit is considered that the site could accommodate a new school site and around and homes, based on a gross density across the site oi approximately 15 5 dph (dwellings per hectare]. and a net density Iexcludlng puotic open space and rnhted use taciiiitesi or around 34 2 doh This level ot development reflects a careful balance hetween the ooiectives ot making the best use ot the land while at the same time respecting the local character.
