Following the grant of outline planning permission by Eastleigh Borough Council in January 2016 for a new community of 1,100 homes, a new local centre, primary school, offices, public open space and other infrastructure, Highwood Group have now secured detailed ‘reserved matters’ approval for the first phase of development at North Stoneham Park.
This first stage of the project to create a new community will begin on the site in August 2017 and will provide 560 much-needed homes alongside a new Avenue Park public open space and new highway links.
Design work is now well advanced on stages 2, 3 and 4 of the development, with planning applications scheduled for submission to the Council this summer.
A reserved matters application for the next 514 new homes, internal roads and public open space is being prepared for Stage 2 and will provide the necessary detail relating to the appearance, landscaping, layout and scale of this part of the community.
Approval for a further 57 homes (Phases 3 and 4) will be the subject of stand-alone full planning applications.
The attached slides contain illustrative layout plans and images showing the proposed approach to scheme appearance and landscaping of the new streets and housing and we would welcome your views on these initial draft concepts ahead of detailed planning submissions being made.
