  • Overview

    Overview

    We are preparing a planning application for a residential development of 16 homes on employment land on the eastern side of our Crookham Park development in Church Crookham, Hampshire.

    As a responsible, considerate developer, we strive to ensure that local people, businesses and community groups are kept fully informed of our proposals - and give them every opportunity to comment on our schemes so we can respond positively to local views.

    More details of our plans can be found in the About the Site and What's Proposed sections of this website. Once you have examined them, we would like to hear your views.

    You can submit your feedback to us by pressing the blue Email Us icon towards the top of this page.

    Please note, the deadline for submitting your feedback is Wednesday 18th March 2015.

  • About the site

    About the site

    The proposed development site, circled on the map, is off Naishes Lane on the former Queen Elizabeth Barracks site in Church Crookham – now known as Crookham Park.

    It was formerly the barracks’ Auxiliary Stores Unit, but more recently it has been used for storage and the current occupiers will be vacating the site soon..

    There is an identified oversupply of employment land in this location and a detailed assessment has been undertaken which confirms the site is unsuitable and unviable for any alternative employment use.

    Government planning guidance states that employment sites should not be retained where there is no prospect of them being used for that purpose and that residential development should be considered instead, where there is a local need.

    The redevelopment of brownfield land, such as this, is also encouraged by the government.

  • What's proposed

    What's proposed

    Our proposed development comprises 16 houses, including two-bedroom designs suitable for first-time buyers and downsizers, and a proportion of affordable properties.

    The scheme will result in significant improvements to the area with the replacement of a building in a poor state of repair with a high-quality residential development.

    Car parking for each home will be provided and existing trees on the site boundary will be retained where possible, with additional landscaping and planting to deliver ecological benefits.

    Our proposed site plan is pictured below.
