Kingston Maurward College is developing a ten year masterplan for the College estate which includes improvements to the animal park facility, the provision of a multi-use hall that would provide the College with a large lecture space which may also be used as a community resource, provision of rugby and football pitches and sports storage, creation of an enterprise park at Stinsford Farm alongside the existing agri-tech unit, the re-siting of the dairy to Higher Bockhampton, the possible extension of the Studio School, improvements to pedestrian access to the campus, and relocation of the stables next to the equestrian centre.
As a key local stakeholder, Stinsford Parish Council has been consulted on the emerging document at an early stage. At the Parish Council's meeting in October 2018, the Principal of the College explained that the aim would be to phase the proposed developments contained within the masterplan over a ten year period, subject to the availability of capital funding. In order to generate capital receipts to fund these aspirational improvements, small scale housing development was proposed on the estate. There was limited opportunity due to the protected status of the historic park, so it was proposed that a small number of houses be developed at Maurward Close, Stinsford Farm, Church Lane and Lower Bockhampton with a mix of tenure.
The Parish Council's response is attached below.
The College and its consultants, A&Q Partnership Ltd, have kindly agreed that this final document be made available to website to enable local residents. This can be access on the Neighbourhood Plan website at http://www.stinsfordnplan.org.uk/kingston-maurward.html
