News: 15 November 2019New 6,000-home Garden Village to be built near Fareham

Welborne Garden Village, a 6,000-home mixed use development in Hampshire has been granted outline planning permission by Fareham Borough Council.  The applicant is Buckland Development Ltd, a locally based landowner and developer who is taking a long-term role in the delivery of the new community.

Accompanying the new homes, the scheme will also deliver four new schools, 100,000 sqm of employment space, significant highways improvements and areas of open space and woodland. Community facilities and social infrastructure will be delivered early to create a sustainable settlement with high quality design, based on many of the original Garden City principles.

Buckland is Master Developer of Welborne and our team has been part of their consultancy team since 2013 providing specialist advise with responsibility the comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment, contribution to consents procedure for proposed motorway infrastructure improvements, and guidance on the Habitats Regulations Assessment.  

Our environmental planners had separately advised on a number of significant matters, including the Sustainability Appraisal for Fareham’s Local Plan and the Area Action Plan that set the policy for Welborne.

Partner Gareth Wilson said: “The granting of outline planning permission for Welborne is a huge achievement and heralds a major milestone in the creation of this ambitious new Garden Village that will become home for so many people in the future. To have been a part of this exciting project from the very beginning, and to finally see the Buckland vision come a step closer to reality is a momentous occasion.”
