Welcome to the Airfield Farm web resource.
Andrew Martin Associates have submitted an outline planning application on behalf of Hallam Land Management Limited
and William Davis Limited for residential development, community facilities, a hotel, a marina, country park, access and
The vision for the site is
'Creation of a desirable and attractive residential area, where traffic-free connections for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders are provided so as to limit use of the car and make the best use of routes to the town centre. Local bus services are improved in order to encourage a sustainable community. A new bridge across the canal forms a gateway feature to the site and provides a view across the new country park and sports facilities provided, linking through to the new marina and neighbourhood centre.
The marina serves as a leisure destination and the local centre, framed around a new public space, provides shops, facilities and services needed by the new community. Children could go to a new primary school, provided as part of the development. Residents would enjoy the village feel of the development and would use a variety of new open spaces, connected by green routes and designed around retained trees and hedgerows'.
