Plans unveiled for 600 new homes on Hampshire countryside
PLANS have been unveiled to bulldoze five patches of Hampshire countryside and build more than 600 homes.
Some 330 homes have been earmarked for a site off Winchester Road in Fair Oak.
The development would see a new community building, three hectares of open space, and play areas. A mixture of flats and houses would be included in the “Crowdhill Green” scheme brought forward by Bloor Homes.
Down the road in Hedge End, developers want to build a further 94 homes on fields off St John’s Road in Hedge End.
The Highwood Group’s plans, for land south of Foord Road and west of Dodwell Lane, would include a mixture of two-, three- and four-bed houses and one- and two-bed flats.
On the outskirts of the town, close to Botley, Bewley Homes wants to build 108 new homes.
The plan, for land to the rear of Sovereign Drive and Precosa Road, would see two buildings demolished as well as development on the open land.
Yet more plans for houses have been unveiled for land north of Bridge Road at Bursledon.
The Highwood Group wants to build 90 homes on the site.
Meanwhile, a further plan has been unveiled to build 94 more homes at Woodside Avenue in Eastleigh, on the site of the existing household recycling centre.
The plan, for land north of Kipling Road, has been submitted by First Wessex.
All five plans have recently been submitted to Eastleigh Borough Council. It comes as the council continues to attempt to finalise its Local Plan.
The document is a blueprint for development up to 2029 and could see 10,140 homes built across the borough in that time – with thousands of those on greenfield land.
A period of public consultation has recently come to an end on what is the second attempt to formally adopt a plan.
