Woodhouse Lane site (click here for more information)
To be known as Woodhouse Meadows, this development will be 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.
Winchester Street site (click here for more information)
The Winchester Street site, to be known as Hamble Fields, will be located to the north east 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 is expected to be granted for the development in Autumn 2020.
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 has 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.
Following consultation with the Clinical Commissioning Group, a financial contribution from both developments will be made towards funding either the expansion of existing GP surgeries or the provision of new medical facilities in the local area.
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.
