A multi-disciplinary team from WYG has secured a resolution to grant approval for phase two of a new community at Boorley Green in Hampshire. The decision, for 889 homes in the Borough of Eastleigh, was achieved within 100 working days, largely as a result of a Planning Performance Agreement. The resolution also includes affordable homes, associated infrastructure, community buildings, multi-use games area, allotments and open space.
Working for a consortium of developers comprising Bloor Homes, Bovis Homes and Linden Homes, our specialist consultancy services provided town planning, landscape, ecology and air quality advice.
The decision follows on from our earlier work to secure the original outline consent for 1400 homes and reserved matters approvals for site enabling works, infrastructure, sports pitches and the first phase comprising 441 homes last summer.
Daniel Wiseman, Associate Director at WYG’s Southampton office, said: “This important decision will enable the delivery of much needed housing in the Borough in a positive manner with all of its supporting infrastructure and community facilities. The consortium entered into a Planning Performance Agreement with officers at the pre-application stage which has played a significant role in bringing the proposals forward so efficiently.”
The overall scheme will also deliver:
• Employment space
• Retail facilities
• An extension to the existing hotel
• 30 hectares of public open space
• A new primary school
• Community facilities
• Road and motorway junction improvements
• The new Sunday’s Hill Bypass
• Extensive cycling and walking networks, and
• Extension of the local GP surgery.
