Aesthetics of newbuild developments?

The question

I wonder if Gladman developments are going to make any effort to blend these 280 houses in with the village? The current Longford Park development resembles a monopoly board with red houses and red roofs that are not in keeping with the character of the village. I note that the new build developments in Adderbury-Feldon Chase and Adderbury Fields have largely been fronted in the local ironstone. Will the same be applied to the new Gladman houses?

Bodicote at Risk Answer

We don’t currently know what the proposed development will look like. At this date (Feb 2016) the application seems to have gone a little quiet.

We suspect that this is due to the newly proposed road for Banbury linking up Overthorpe to Bodicote and the proposed spine road across the Salt Way site. This will effectively create a new ring-road for the town that pushes traffic through the village.
