The Consultation

Our Proposal

Indicative sketch of the proposals

We have recently acquired an interest in the former Tetronics site, 5 Lechlade Road and the dwellings at 53 – 55 Gravel Walk, Faringdon. We are in the early stages of working up proposals for the site’s redevelopment to provide new, specialist retirement accommodation, together with landscaping, indoor communal facilities and on-site car parking; and are looking to have input from the current residents on our initial plans.

Our plans are for a new, vibrant, retirement community, providing choice for older people in the local area and comprise of:

Proposed ground floor plan
  • A high-quality Retirement Living development featuring up to 50 one-and two- bedroom apartments for private sale, part-rent part-buy and rental options
  • Tailored shared facilities within the building, including a communal lounge with a kitchenette and a hotel-style guest suite
  • One building of three storeys in height, stepping down to two-storeys along the northern and western boundaries to respect the neighbouring properties
  • A contemporary design that draws on features from the local area, including buff brickwork whilst keeping the building height to a minimum with a flat roof
  • Parking for approximately 38 cars, including the provision of electric charging points and disabled bays, for homeowners, staff and visitors
  • Retention of the existing vehicle access Canada Lane, as well as pedestrian links to the public footpath to the north of the site
  • Space for internal cycle and mobility scooter storage with charging points, reflecting the site’s sustainable location
  • Attractive landscaped outdoor spaces, including a communal garden area to the north of the building abutting the properties on Lechlade Road, as well as extensive tree planting throughout the site to create a pleasant residential environment

We have carefully considered our design for the site, to breathe life into this brownfield site. Our proposals present a valuable opportunity to bring forward a specialist retirement community in this part of Faringdon, providing genuine choice for older people so that they can continue to live locally, near their existing communities and family, in a home that meets their needs and aspirations in their later years.
