PLANS to transform Southampton's former Meridian television site into a thriving complex of flats and homes have been revealed.

Residents got their first glimpse of the £40million proposals to overhaul the derelict site at an exhibition in the city.

Developer Inland Homes PLC wants to build up to 350 homes and a convenience store on the seven-acre riverside site.

And the firm also wants to create a new park and a riverside walkway that will open the Itchen waterfront up to thousands of city residents.

ITV contractors Southern, TVS and finally Meridian were all based at the site for decades.

But 2008 saw the end of broadcasting at the site after a £4.5billion merger between Meridian's owners Granada and Carlton, and the subsequent decision to close the site.

Since then the site has been a rubble-strewn eyesore, and two previous schemes have been proposed but never got past the drawing board.

First Oakdene Homes wanted to build a £100million complex with 500 apartments, commercial space and a 27-storey tower.

And then, after Oakdene went into administration in 2009, the Royal Bank of Scotland's commercial property wing West Register proposed another plan for 250 homes, but it never saw the light of day.

But Inland Homes believes its blueprint for the Meridian Gardens development can come to fruition in the next two or three years.

It would contain 356 properties, divided between 30 three-bed, 156 two-bed and 150 one-bed homes, including some affordable properties and in buildings of up to 13 storeys in height.

A new park would be created, which would open onto a riverside walkway along the River Itchen's western bank, and the site would also contain a convenience store.

And there will also be flood protection measures built along the banks of the Itchen, while the nearby Union Road junction will be improved.

The firm will return with more detailed plans later in the year, and expects to hand in a planning application by the autumn.

If planning permission is granted by the end of the year, then work will begin on site next summer.

Paul Brett, land director at Inland Homes, said: “We have been delighted by the positive response of the community to our proposals.

“The site has been a neglected eyesore for too many years.

“Inland Homes will build high-quality new homes, opening up the river walk and creating a new park to transform this neglected but prominent site.”

I think property is fetching top dollar everywhere nowadays, I'm sure there will be plenty of takers considering the housing shortage! Not sure how they expect to upgrade flood defences, best leave the ground floor empty for storage or parking of vehicles/boats, just in case!

Looks very very boring. Council should stop falling into the trap of letting development happen at places on the cheap just because the land is vacant. Should encourage developers to do something special & interesting & unique, not generic blocks. City has far too many of them as it is.

Just because the developer is including a proportion of "affordable housing" doesn't mean there will be anti-social behaviour.

As property prices continue to rise and deposit requirements become nigh on impossible to muster more people fall in to the affordable housing bracket.

Don't be so bloody pretentious and elitist.

On the plus side though, at least homes are being provided to those in need.

The trouble is that "affordable housing" in development and Council planning terms doesn't mean affordable housing, it means "social housing" for those on benefits etc. So people who are working hard but don't qualify for benefits still can't afford properties as the minimum percentage will be social housing and the rest will be sky high prices to attract more affluent people into the area.
I was really hoping that this site would be seen as an opportunity to build some truly affordable and imaginative housing units - as they're starting to build in London - where average-earning singles , couples or families - or people being forced to downsize to free up capital to live off of, could live. And it would be a brilliant site for City workers who could bus in to town without needing to use cars.

So called Affordable ( Volkswagen ) homes short change builders..

Labour Party Fabians instead of making their services ( Governments & Councils ) more Affordable use Affordable ( Volkswagen ) Housing as a vote winner and a means to devalue ( see below Fabian rant ) the private sector.. and have been busy at it since the 1940s

House building at the 'New State's behest could have nothing but beneficial effects economically. However new housing is commissioned by the state it should be designed , by fair means or foul, to undercut the private market , stabilise and gradually reduce house prices and enable the much prized swing voters to be housed and have to spend less on housing. Surely we can defeat the free marketeers on housing ?
