With work anticipated to commence in August 2017, the first stage of a 1,100-home scheme at North Stoneham Park in Eastleigh has been approved by Eastleigh Borough Council.

In January 2016, the outline planning permission was granted.

Using a Planning Performance Agreement with the council, a team from planning consultancy WYG secured permission for reserved matters for developer Highwood Group.

560 homes are planned to be developed in this phase with 196 of these being affordable.

Additionally, the plans for this phase are set to include:

  • Public open space,
  • Play areas,
  • Pedestrian links,
  • Cycle links,
  • Supporting infrastructure.

The full scheme of 1,100-home is set to be included:

  • A primary school,
  • A pre-school nursery,
  • Housing for older people,
  • Retail space,

Enhancements to the local infrastructure, for example, improvements to road junctions, will be enabled in the scheme.

It has been said by Eastleigh Borough Council, that “great improvements” to portions of the historic park and restoration of historic buildings will be noticed by the new community.

“More people than ever before will be able to have access to this land and understand the historic value with its restoration. It will also provide much needed affordable housing allowing local people to be able to have a home of their own.”
