Woodhouse Meadows (click here for more information)
Woodhouse Meadows development is located to the north and east of Hedge End. Deer Park School, a village square and Local Centre will be at the heart of the development creating a vibrant new extension to the existing community that respects and reflects the surrounding area.
Botley Fields (click here for more information)
Botley Fields development will be located to the northeast of Botley within walking distance of the village centre. The historic character of Botley has influenced the design, which respects and reflects the local village.
Outline planning consent was granted in March 2022.
Whilst the developments will be delivered separately there are a number of elements that apply to both schemes, which are covered in more detail below.
BREEAM Communities ‘excellent’
BREEAM Communities comprises a set of standards established and administered by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) to help guide new development in the early stages of planning and design.
It provides a framework for considering the issues and opportunities that affect sustainability at the earliest stage of the design process for a development. The scheme addresses key environmental, social and economic sustainability objectives that have an impact on large-scale development projects, including social and economic wellbeing, resource and energy, land use and ecology, and transport and movement.
The outline proposals for the Uplands Development have been developed following the BREEAM Communities framework approach. This is in line with Eastleigh Borough Council’s planning policies and an ‘excellent’ BREEAM certification is being targeted.
New connections and sustainable travel
The Uplands Development has been designed to promote sustainable travel and will encourage walking, cycling and equestrian movements by connecting to the existing pathways to create a permeable network.
The plan below shows the extent of the new and improved routes that will be created as part of the development of both sites.
