THIS is what the new homes set to be built at the site of a popular car boot sale in a Hampshire village could look like.

Detailed plans for the new housing development and country park at the site of the Bursledon market and car boot sale have been unveiled.

Developer Taylor Wimpey is pledging to guarantee an estimated £3.2m of contributions towards local infrastructure.

As reported, the land hosted the popular car boot sale for 32 years before it was bought by the borough council last year.

The site already has planning permission but the developer has now unveiled details of the plans that include 200 homes on land south of Bursledon Road, a country park and a children's play area.

A new relief road is expected to run parallel to Hamble Lane and end at a new signal controlled junction on Bursledon Road.

Alex Sciarretta, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey southern counties, said: “The land off Bursledon Road is ideally located close to a number of local amenities and schools and the beautiful surroundings make it perfect as the potential site for another development.”

The site will also see a new parkland area of 10.5 hectares in size – about 14 football pitches – with a mix of public open space areas and play equipment.

Council leader Keith House said: “What is most important is we have the details of the new junction on Bursledon Road that will allow the Hamble Lane site access to be closed later this year, and the new country park that guarantees green space between Bursledon and Southampton.”

The plans will be discussed on March 22.
