North Whiteley

Land off Whiteley Way - Whiteley - Hampshire

Together with our consortium partners Crest Nicholson, Bovis Homes and JGP Lakedale, Taylor Wimpey have submitted a planning application for 3,500 new homes in North Whiteley, Hampshire.

  • Overview


    North Whiteley is a brand new 3,500-home sustainable community proposed by a consortium of housebuilders for land extending  to the north of the existing community of Whiteley ,Hampshire, which itself has the benefit of a recently completed new town centre complex.

    The consortium, which comprises Taylor Wimpey, Crest Nicholson, Bovis Homes and JGP Lakedale, have submitted an outline planning application for the North Whiteley scheme to Winchester City Council in March 2015.

    The planning application includes 3,500 new homes across two neighbourhood areas, plus a host of facilities including two primary schools, a secondary school, two neighbourhood centres with space for shops, a wealth of open space and community amenities.

    The planning application is based on a masterplan which has been developed in close consultation with Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council, Whiteley Town  Council, Curbridge Parish Council and Botley Parish Council.

    The proposed development site is shown within the red line on the image on the right.

    Grant of planning permission is presently anticipated Spring 2018 with a commencement of infrastructure works later in 2018.

    Housebuilding and first occupations are anticipated later in 2019.

    North Whiteley Landscape Plan

    Key national landscape and ecological designations near the North Whiteley site. Click for an expandable view.

    The site lies within Winchester City district on the northern side of Whiteley, adjacent to the A3051 Botley Road, with good access to Southampton, five miles to the south west, via the M27, and Fareham, two miles to the south.

    Immediately to the north of the site at Botley lies the mainline railway line between Portsmouth and Winchester and to the south is Swanwick railway station.

    The site is one of Winchester City Council’s Strategic Development Areas (SDA), which means it has been allocated for development by the authority to help it meet its targets for new housing.

    Key site features such as woodland, tree belts, meadows and grasslands and associated ecology enhancements have helped to guide the masterplan to make sure the new community will be in harmony with the site and its surroundings.

    Several of the woodland parcels on site are afforded protection as Sites of Importance to Nature Conservation (SINCs), offering rich habitat structure and diverse tree species. These SINCs will be retained as part of the proposals.

    The site also includes a Grade II-listed 17th century farmhouse which will be retained and treated with sensitivity in terms of the impact of the proposed development.

    The proposed development site is shown in relation to key landscape and ecological features on the plan pictured right.
