Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Warsash

Under our proposals, we will provide up to eighty-five 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 & 4 bedroom new homes, perfect for young couples and families – with 40% to be affordable housing and 60% to be sold on the private market.

The site is located west of Locks Heath approximately 2.5km south-west of Junction 9 of the M27 on the route of Brook Lane between Locks Heath and Warsash.

Local shopping centres include Barnes Lanes Parade and Locks Heath District Centre to the West. The X5 bus service provides connections with Gosport, Fareham and Southampton.  The nearest railway station is at Swanwick.

Being such a popular family location, there are a number of Primary and Secondary schools in the area plus school services also run to Henry Court and Peter Symonds colleges.

The architecture of the site is based on the local area and the introduction of new trees and on-plot planting will create a well landscaped public realm and distinctive sense of place.

The illustrative masterplan provides 0.38ha of green space which includes Public Opens Space and ecological buffers. 

Some images are used for illustrative purposes only and include optional upgrades at additional cost. Development managed by Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties.

Our proposals for Bramley Park

The master plan

We want to create a thriving new community in Warsash.  Our plans for Bramley Park are in line with the approved outline planning permission granted by Fareham Borough Council in May 2018.

Bramley Park is allocated for residential development in Fareham Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Plan and our proposals meet the objectives that the plan sets out.  The development will provide a mix of 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom high quality homes, with 40% of which will be affordable housing, and each of the homes will have a dedicated parking space and garden.

The site includes green spaces around most of the perimeter to create a natural and open feel to the development as well as providing important ecological buffers to the south and east. Popular with families the local schools include Sarisbury Junior and Infants School, Locks Heath Junior and Infants School, Park Gate Primary School and Brookfield Community School. 

Streetscenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area and we’ll use locally sourced materials to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby. 
To create a characterful community, the proposed homes will incorporate a variety of brick colours, weatherboarding and roof tiles. Chimneys have also been included on certain properties on the site.

Homes proposed

Our proposals for private housing include 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes and 2 bedroom coach houses.

The majority of the houses will be two storey, with a mix of detached, semi detached and terraced designs. There will be three apartment blocks in the centre of the site all of which are three storeys high.

Connectivity

We understand that a new development will have an impact on the existing community and we have carefully considered this as we have developed our proposals. 

The main road into Bramley Park will be from Brook Lane.

A transport assessment was completed as part of the process to gain outline planning approval. This confirms that the road network surrounding the proposed development has sufficient capacity to accommodate the traffic that will be generated. 

The development provides open space to the east of the site with informal paths to walk through this area and a possible pedestrian connection to any further development plans, should they come forward in the future.

Drainage

We have prepared a flood risk assessment and surface water drainage strategy to ensure that an appropriate drainage strategy is put in place. The site is wholly located in Flood Zone 1.
To reduce the impact of the proposed development on the existing drainage network, our current proposals are to include a number of underground water attenuation crates and an attenuation pond to store the water on-site before discharging into the sewer on Brook Lane.

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when we plan and build new developments. We have carried out a number of ecological surveys to identify any ecological constraints on the site. 
Our plans include significant opportunities to enhance the site for local wildlife and measures to enhance biodiversity. These include new bat and bird boxes, a sensitive lighting scheme to respect nocturnal wildlife and the creation of diverse natural habitats for birds. 

Heritage

The site is located some way from the closest Conservation Areas: Sarisbury Conservation Area to the north and Warsash Conservation Area to the south west.

There are also a number of Historic Parks and Gardens located to the north and south of the site.

These include:

  • Brooklands Historic Park and Garden
  • Coldeast Historic Park and Garden
  • Holy Hill / Sarisbury Court Historic Park and Garden
  • Hook Park Historic Park and Garden

Previous use

Bramley Park covers an area of 2.7 hectares and lies to the east of Brook Lane, Warsash. It is currently a brownfield site and is allocated for residential development in Fareham Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Plan.

Previous planning applications

We received outline planning permission for Bramley Park from Fareham Borough Council in May 2018.
The outline planning permission establishes the principle of development. We have currently submitted a reserved matters planning application which deals with the finer details of the development, such as the mix, layout and design of the homes.

Previous consultations and feedback

We value comments from local people and listen to all feedback we receive so that we can deliver new communities where people want to live.

As part of the process of securing outline planning permission for Bramley Park we engaged with the local community, Fareham Borough Council and key stakeholders. We have taken on board the feedback received during this process, and it has helped us to shape our more detailed plans for the site.
For example one of the comment from the public consultation was the inclusion of more visitor parking spaces on the development which is something we have included and discussed at length with the council.

We would like to thank everyone who gave us their feedback during the consultation period for our reserved matters planning application which has now been submitted to Fareham Borough Council.
  

History of the site features

Economic benefits

We want to deliver new homes and facilities that positively integrate with and enhance the local community. 
If our reserved matters planning application is approved we will make a financial contribution to Fareham Borough Council which will be used to improve local highway improvements, local play areas, Solent disturbance mitigation and education contributions. Total financial contributions are in excess of £800,000.

We will also be carrying out work to implement additional traffic calming measures on Brook Lane and will be widening the road to assist in the delivery of a new junction.
 

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration. 
Our plans for Bramley Park include a large area of open space to the east of the site and an attenuation basin with landscaping to create an attractive entrance to the site. New footpaths will surround the open space, giving residents easy access to the nearby town.
