An award-winning developer has been given the go-ahead to complete a 352-home development overlooking a Hampshire river.

Hampshire-based Bargate Homes has embarked on a £128m project to develop 34 acres of land at the mouth of the River Hamble.

Bargate has recently secured planning permission to build 126 homes - including 51 affordable properties.

The 5.1-acre development east of Brook Lane, Warsash, marks the final phase of Bargate's Rivercross scheme.

Homes at Admirals Green will include apartments and 1-4 bedroom houses with solar panels, EV charging points, and air source heat pumps. A swathe of green space will also be included.

The scheme has been given the go-ahead by Fareham Borough Council, despite several objections to the application.

One of the protesters said: "Warsash is losing all green spaces and being grossly overdeveloped."

Another added: "My husband and I moved to Warsash a year ago and were told we were no longer within the catchment for our old doctors’ surgery.

"We had to find one locally within 30 days. I rang and emailed every surgery but nowhere had spaces. In the end, I had to join a practice in Titchfield, about three miles away.

"Unless the developers are providing a new surgery to accommodate all the new residents, I strongly disagree with the new development."

Mark White is managing director of Bargate Homes, which is based at Fair Oak.

He said: "This is the final piece in our award-winning Rivercross puzzle, an outstanding new development that has already proved hugely popular and will provide much-needed affordable homes.

“Enriching the place we all call home is at the heart of our ethos, and this final phase at Rivercross truly epitomises our commitment to creating thriving communities.

"We’re not only building a fantastic selection of eco-focused family homes but also providing expansive public open space, leaving a lasting legacy for the whole community to enjoy."

Up to 40 per cent of the 126 homes at Admirals Green will be built for VIVID, Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes.

A Bargate spokesperson said: "The development has been sensitively designed to echo the traditional style found locally, featuring homes with predominantly red bricks and vertical slate effect tiles.

"New cycle and footpaths will provide links to local infrastructure and encourage sustainable methods of transport."
