Our proposals for Alresford Meadows
The master plan
We want to create a thriving new community in New Alresford. Our plans for Alresford Meadows are in line with the approved outline planning permission granted by Winchester City Council in March 2020.
Alresford Meadows is allocated for residential development in the Winchester District Local Plan Part 1 (Adopted March 2013). The proposed scheme is split into two; the residential scheme is located to the north separated from the commercial area to the south by approximately 16 hectares of Parkland.
To create a sustainable community, the proposed development will have a number of distinct character areas such as the ‘Sun Lane Gateway’, ‘Parkland & Countryside Edge’ and ‘Village Green’.
The majority of the houses will be two storey, with a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced properties to provide new homes for a variety of people. There will be a number of apartment blocks pepper-potted across the site, these are currently proposed at 2.5 storeys high to retain the existing views over the countryside.

The main access point(s) to Alresford Meadows will be provided via the existing Sun lane access as well as a new roundabout proposed on the A31. This will provide additional access to the south via the commercial area and on to Sun Lane.
A transport assessment was completed as part of the process to gain outline planning approval. This confirms that the proposed road alignment/new junction in principle is sufficient to serve the additional traffic generated by residential and commercial development.
Our plans include significant opportunities to enhance the site for local wildlife and measures to enhance biodiversity, sensitive lighting will be used to respect nocturnal wildlife as well as creating a diverse natural habitat for birds and ground foraging mammals.
