Emberton Houses, Nr Olney/Milton Keynes

The site is located on the entry toward Olney in Buckinghamshire not far from Milton Keynes. Within the site is a Grade II listed house and part of the planning policy position was the reinstatement of the historical wall and the development of the addition of two houses would assist to support this.

The site is located in open countryside and related to the curtilage of the listed building. As such, the proposal was captured under the ‘exception housing’ local policy related to the 5 year housing supply.

The proposal is for two units of contemporary design and low lying related to the historical wall. The scheme was well received by Milton Keynes Planning Council and has now been constructed.
