Weavers Fold

Intro­duc­ing a devel­op­ment of eight homes in the mar­ket town of Chip­ping Nor­ton, expect­ed to com­plete ear­ly 2024.

In a nation­al first, Weavers Fold is a devel­op­ment of 2 and 3‑bedroom zero-car­bon homes, offered at dis­count mar­ket sale, which will be cus­tom built allow­ing buy­ers to influ­ence ele­ments of the design and spec­i­fi­ca­tion of their new home.

Vision for Weavers Fold

Locat­ed on the bound­ary of the his­toric mar­ket town of Chip­ping Nor­ton, Weavers Fold draws its inspi­ra­tion from the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of the wool trade and tweed weav­ing indus­tries when the land­scape offered per­fect graz­ing and rear­ing con­di­tions for huge flocks of the famous Cotswold Lion sheep, often kept in pens known as sheepfolds.

One Plan­et Living

Weavers Fold will incor­po­rate the One Plan­et Liv­ing® Frame­work cre­at­ed by Biore­gion­al (find out more atwww​.biore​gion​al​.com/​o​n​e​-​p​l​a​n​e​t​-​l​iving). There are ten One Plan­et Liv­ing® prin­ci­ples to cre­ate a bet­ter, more sus­tain­able place to live where peo­ple can live hap­pi­ly and health­ily with­in the nat­ur­al lim­its of the plan­et, leav­ing space for nature. Part of Weavers Fold vision is to cre­ate ameni­ty space for com­mu­ni­ty activ­i­ties such as grow­ing food and com­post­ing, plus pro­vi­sion for elec­tric vehi­cle charg­ing and a car club. 

Net Zero Carbon 

Enabling Devel­op­er, Green Axis, is work­ing to align this scheme with West Oxford­shire Dis­trict Council’s Net Zero Car­bon Tool kit. The homes will be zero car­bon in oper­a­tion with renew­able ener­gy gen­er­at­ed on-site and the use of nat­ur­al mate­ri­als with low embod­ied carbon. 

Cus­tom Build

Each home in this devel­op­ment can be con­fig­ured and per­son­alised to match buy­ers’ lifestyles and design pref­er­ences, giv­ing pur­chasers a sig­nif­i­cant input into the design and spec­i­fi­ca­tion of their new home. Cus­tomi­sa­tion options include the choice of two or three bed­rooms, mul­ti­ple bath­rooms, dif­fer­ent foot­prints, and dif­fer­ent lay­out options for the ground floor or first floor, or 3 storey liv­ing. With­in each foot­print, there are dif­fer­ent floor plans, along with a range of choic­es on exter­nal mate­ri­als, inter­nal fin­ish­es, as well as the usu­al join­ery, kitchens, and bathrooms. 

Afford­able Local Housing

To help meet afford­able local hous­ing needs, West Oxford­shire Dis­trict Coun­cil has allo­cat­ed fund­ing from Sec­tion 106 con­tri­bu­tions allow­ing a 20% dis­count on mar­ket rates. This is offered exclu­sive­ly to local buy­ers who meet the eli­gi­bil­i­ty cri­te­ria. The Coun­cil has agreed that this dis­count will be applied to all future sales, so the hous­es remain afford­able, in perpetuity. 

Local prop­er­ty spe­cial­ists, Wallers Estate Agents, are han­dling all sales enquiries.
