Hi, Great website btw.  [Thanks... Admin}
Can anyone that has posted here kindly give me the location of the developments referred to so I can look up the detail on the planning process etc. Reason being we have Barwood Homes with permission to build 40 homes at the back of our land in Quainton.

They have submitted their housing plan and the detail couldn't be further from the requirements laid down by the inspector during the appeal process which we unfortunately obviously lost. Main issue being they didn't submit a drainage proposal and this is key issue, surprise!
We have until Monday to respond, any detail would be appreciated.

The Old Stour. Barwood did not adhere to drainage as in planning. Site flooded with run off from fields. They did address the problem AFTER the event.

Form what I have seen Barwood Homes may well build the houses but it may prove difficult to sell them!

Coming back with an update - have fairly serious water ingress problems with a window.

Barwood's response so far has been prompt but relatively disappointing, first two visits to apply mastic everywhere (poorly, had to ask the guy to re-apply the second time) and the next visit is to seal the brickwork arches above the windows.

They have dealt with minor issues (e.g. fixings) very well.

Let's see what happens.

STAY AWAY from this developer!
We were one of the many unlucky ones to purchase a property from this unprofessional developer.
We have endured 18 months of lies, stress and anguish trying to remitted the wealth of serious that have come with our new home.  The battle continues, so I would advise anyone contemplating buying their dream home from Barwood.... walk away and save yourself the heartache.
Marketing themselves as striving for quality and attention to detail.
Couldn't be further from the truth. They have used poor quality contractors, cut corners and lie continuously.
What should have been our dream home has been and continues to be a living nightmare!

Major issues with brickwork, mortar, electrics, plumbing and structural issues with roof.
Barwood will take your money and run away laughing.
Disgraceful company that ruin peoples' lives without any accountability or regulation.
