Christchurch Urban Extension
We are currently preparing outline proposals for a new residential development on land near Roeshot Hill, Christchurch.
The proposed development site is identified for a strategic housing allocation of up to 950 homes under Policy CN1 of Christchurch Borough Council’s Core Strategy (adopted April 2014), as shown on the plan pictured right.
The Core Strategy identifies the land as the Christchurch Urban Extension, which establishes the principle of residential development on the land.
Part of the Christchurch Urban Extension area includes the existing Council-owned Roeshot Hill allotments, but these are excluded from our current proposals. However, our proposed scheme will allow and plan for the future integration of the allotments site, if and when it is brought forward for development in the future.
We are seeking outline planning permission for our proposed development of up to 850 homes, which would build upon the initial development masterplan which forms part of the Core Strategy. All other matters (including property design, final layout and detailed landscaping) would be dealt with through separate future planning submissions.
We held a public consultation event at Somerford Alliance Resource Centre on Wednesday 30 September and you can view the information boards which were on display at our exhibition by clicking here.
You can also find out more about our proposals via the 'About the site' and 'What's proposed' tabs of this website.
The public consultation period for our proposed development has now closed. All comments received by Wednesday 14 October 2015 will now be taken into consideration as we refine our emerging plans ahead of submitting a planning application to Christchurch Borough Council early in 2016.
Alongside our development proposals, the Hinton Admiral Estate are preparing plans for the creation of a new area of publicly accessible open space known as a Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) to the north of our site on the other side of the railway line.
