Land off Low Lane for the construction of ponds
Spring 2008. View of land located off Low Lane which has been designated for the construction of conservation ponds by Ramboll for client The Burford Group. Major plans were in place in 2007 by Burford to develop an urban village on the former 50 acre site of Woodside Quarry, which was to include luxury housing and apartments, shops, a gym and hotel and a £2.5 million rail link. As part of the scheme the company were required to provide a new habitat for the protected species of Great Crested Newt found in the area. A cluster of three Newt Receptor Ponds was designed at a cost of £1 million, and the project was completed in 2009. The recession curtailed plans for an urban village, and the site, in 2017, is still awaiting development. On the left the former Clayton Wood Cottage is visible, now a boarding kennels, and on the right is Springwood House, a substantial four storey office building fronting Low Lane.
