One of the key components of our green infrastructure proposals
for the site is the delivery of circa 100 hectares of Country Park,
incorporating the existing calcareous grassland as part of which
occupies the airfield to preserve the biodiversity value.
New parkland tree planting is proposed alongside a network
of informal paths and trails which provides access to various
informal and formal recreational spaces, as well as fitness trails
and nature walks.
The site borders a SSSI and we have incorporated a robust
ecological buffer along the north western boundary which we
hope to gift to the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire
Wildlife Trust to help further improve biodiversity and preserve
a degree of separation between the Country Park and the SSSI.
