Rownhams Lane - Rownhams - Southampton - Hampshire - SO16 8AP

We have submitted reserved matters planning applications for a development of 320 new homes on land off Rownhams Lane.

  • Overview

    Brand new homes coming soon to Broadleaf Park!

    Taylor Wimpey has acquired Parkers Farm. The site has the benefit of Outline Planning Permission for 320 new homes, a care home and a livery.

    We have recently submitted planning applications for our proposals for a new development of up to 320 homes on land off Rownhams Lane in Rownhams, Southampton.
    The existing outline planning permission includes the provision of land for a new 60 unit care home, a livery comprising of stables for up to 30 horses and menage, and significant areas of open space (1.4 hectares) in addition to a 12.2 hectare SANGS area.
    Under our proposals, 40% of the new homes will be provided as affordable housing.

    What's Proposed?

    • Phase 2 - 160 new homes
    • Phase 3 - 140 new homes

    • A provision of affordable housing (40%)

    • Significant areas of open space including play spaces, allotments, a new community orchard plus a SANGs area (open space for dog walking etc)

  • Community

    Community Benefits

    We believe our proposal will carry wider benefits to the community of Rownhams beyond the provision of much-needed new homes.

    These benefits have been secured by way of a section 106 legal agreement and include financial contributions to be made for the benefit of the local community, including:

    • £960,000 towards highways and transport improvements
    • £269,000 of education contributions
    • £134,000 towards community facilities
    • £38,000 towards public art
    • £55,000 towards reducing impacts on the SPA areas surrounding the Solent
    • A travel plan (with incentives) to help encourage the reduction of vehicle movements of the new residents
    • An employment and skills plan to create opportunities for local employment, apprenticeships etc
  • Updates
