Our proposals for Parcel L2 at Augusta Park

Surrounding area

The proposed development site covers an area of approximately 4.2 hectares (10.5 acres). To the south of the site is the YMCA nursery and Endeavour Primary School; to the east/north east is Finkley Farm Road and residential properties; to the west/south west is Dairy Road and residential properties; and, to the north is open parkland, a playground and outdoor sports court and Smannell Road.

The Masterplan

We have delivered a number of homes in Andover in recent years and we want to expand the thriving new community.

Our emerging proposals are for the development of the final parcel of land at Augusta Park and we have been working closely with Test Valley Borough Council and other key stakeholders to ensure that our proposed development will meet the needs of local people.

Our plans include:

  • Up to 136 high-quality new homes, including shared ownership and affordable housing
  • A mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses which respond to identified local need
  • A retail convenience store
  • Attractive areas of open space running through the heart of the site
  • Car parking spaces in line with Test Valley Borough Council’s adopted parking standards
  • Cycle parking facilities and pedestrian routes to encourage sustainable modes of transport

Our proposed development layout has been carefully considered so that houses front the areas of open space and that these areas are free from vehicular traffic.

Street scenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area and we will use locally sourced materials to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby.

Connectivity

The proposed development has been designed with good connectivity in mind. Cycling and walking will be encouraged with a network of footpaths and cycleways through the heart of the site, connecting through the residential areas. This will provide easy access to the surrounding area and to existing public transport links, including bus stops on Finkley Farm Road and Dairy Road which are less than a 5-minute walk from any part of the site. We will also provide cycle parking facilities for residents.

Drainage

The design of our proposed development has been driven by Test Valley Borough Council’s desire to introduce sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) which are designed to mimic natural drainage and to contribute, wherever possible, to environmental enhancement. Our proposals incorporate a network of swales that sit within large areas of open space.

Proposed drainage features and associated planting will also provide increased habitat potential on the site.

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when we plan and build new developments. We have carried out an ecological survey and have identified that the site is currently of low ecological value.

Our plans include significant opportunities to enhance the site for local wildlife. Our proposed drainage features, for example, will provide shelter, and somewhere to forage and breed for certain species, as well as an opportunity for associated planting.

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration. That’s why we’ve included large areas of green open spaces that run through the heart of the site in our plans.

Amenities and facilities

We aim to support the communities in which we build. One way in which we do this is by providing new facilities that local people will benefit from.

As part of our proposals, we plan to deliver a retail convenience store for the use of residents and the wider community.
