Our Proposals

Existing Highlands Park Phase 1 development

Our Vision

Crest has a strong track record of delivering on promises made at Highlands Park Phase 1 and is committed to delivering a highquality Phase 2, which complements and reflects the success of our existing development.

Phase 2 of the Highlands Park development will add to a sustainable, genuine mixed-use community. Our masterplan is landscape-led, with significant new planting and open space proposed. We will further enhance biodiversity through fully integrated ecological corridors and provide crucial affordable housing for Henley residents.

Highlands Park Phase 1 Replan

Alongside the Phase 2 planning application, we will also be submitting an application to replan a small part of Highlands Park Phase 1, with the employment space and the community centre planned for Phase 1 moving to Phase 2. This replan is a requirement of the Neighbourhood Plan policy for Phase 2 and will ensure that the employment space and the community centre are more accessible for Henley residents and businesses.

We are proposing 21 further homes, including 8 or 9 affordable homes, on Phase 1 on the space vacated by the employment and community facilities moving to Phase 2.

Our proposals for Highlands Park Phase 2 include:
