Learn about our emerging proposals to build up to 136 new homes at Augusta Park, Andover.
We are holding an online public consultation so the local community can view and comment on our plans for up to 136 new homes in the final parcel of land at Augusta Park, Andover.
Our proposals include a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments as well as 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, including shared ownership and affordable housing for local people. Our plans also include large areas of open space running through the heart of the site, a retail store and cycle parking facilities.
You can find out more about our plans on this webpage and provide your feedback by emailing [email protected] or by filling out the online form available by clicking on the “Have Your Say” button.
The consultation period will end at 4pm on Friday 13th August 2021 and all comments will be considered before we submit a full planning application to Test Valley Borough Council in late summer 2021.
Our proposals for Parcel L2 at Augusta Park
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.
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.
Our proposals include up to 136 homes, comprising 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses.
The majority of the houses will be two storey, with a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced designs.

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.
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.
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.
