Consultation on proposals for Uplands Farm Estate

Closed on

Hampshire County Council are inviting views to help shape proposals for new homes, a secondary school and community facilities on the Uplands Farm Estate in Botley and Hedge End - in response to local housing and education needs

Description

The County Council is responding directly to a request from Eastleigh Borough Council to bring forward these sites as part of its Local Plan review, on which the Borough Council are expected to consult later this year.

Uplands Farm Estate consists of two sites owned by Hampshire County Council - west of Woodhouse Lane in Hedge End, and north of Winchester Street in Botley. Proposals being developed for the two sites include; up to 1,025 new private and affordable homes of different types and sizes; a local centre with up to 1,000 square metres of employment spaces; public open space; sports pitches; and additional allotments.

Wildern Academy Trust, working alongside the County Council, are also inviting residents to feedback on proposals for a secondary school on the Woodhouse Lane site.

The planning applications are expected to be submitted to Eastleigh Borough Council by spring 2018.

The Consultation

Your views are very important and will be used to inform an outline planning application for a residential-led development at Woodhouse Lane and Winchester Street, and a detailed application for a new secondary school at the Woodhouse Lane site.

More information can be found on the project website - Uplands Farm Estate

The consultation is open from 22 September 2017

The closing date is 20 October 2017

Please note that responses received after this time will not be included in the findings report.
