PROJECT


21 HOSKINS ROAD, OXTED, RH89HT, UK

 

One Oak Development Ltd plan to build a new house on a site at 21, Hoskins Road, Oxted, Surrey. Drawing FD10 by Lovell Design Ltd shows details of the proposed site plan. The land is considerably lower than Hoskins Road and access is via a short steep drive. The small buildings on the site were formerly used by a business that serviced lawnmowers.

 

The 1/50,000 geological map, Sheet 285, indicates the area to be underlain by the Folkstone Formation. A borehole available from the British Geological Survey to the north of the site proved the Folkstone Beds to be approximately 20m thick with a water level at a depth of 16m. Given the steep eastern boundary of the site it is likely the area was once a small sand pit.
