Former Oakland School, Bayston Hill

Glebe Road, Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY3

Located at the site of the former Oakland Primary School off Glebe Road in Bayston Hill, this proposed residential development is entirely within walking distance of the village’s local amenities. The proposed development will provide a range of starter and family homes and bungalows.


Project Details

Our proposal for the site comprises a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, plus 1 and 2 bedroom bungalows. Our generously spaced 2 bedroom homes are ideal for local first time buyers whilst our 3 and 4 bedroom homes offer generous living space for growing families. The bungalows are ideal for residents looking to downsize or who require ground floor accommodation.

All homes will be built to Nationally Described Space Standards and designed and constructed to reduce carbon emissions to enhance comfort for residents and deliver an EPC ‘A’ rating with energy saving features.

The site benefits from easy access to all of the amenities in Bayston Hill, such as the primary school, GP surgery, convenience store, post office and the library.

Our current proposals are subject to detailed consultation with the local community, stakeholders and the Local Planning Authority.


The online consultation closed on 26th April 2022 and your comments have been reviewed. Thank you for your feedback on our proposal for the site, your comments helped influence the final design for the planning submission in Spring 2022.

Former Oakland School FAQs

Construction activity is necessarily disruptive, but it is also exciting and can provide opportunities for the local community and local people.

We are committed to working with local companies and local people who want to work as part of the redevelopment process.

We will provide several financial contributions for local amenities as part of the proposed development and working with our construction partners we will be seeking further ways to optimise the benefits of our activity for local residents.
