Christchurch Urban Extension
We have now submitted a planning application for a new residential development on land near Roeshot Hill, Christchurch.
The council’s Core Strategy identifies the land as the Christchurch Urban Extension, which establishes the principle of residential development on the land, as shown on the plan pictured right.
Part of the Christchurch Urban Extension area includes the existing council-owned Roeshot Hill allotments, but this land is not included in our application. However, our proposed scheme will allow and plan for the future integration of the allotments land, 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 875 homes, which would build upon the initial development masterplan that forms part of the Core Strategy. All other matters (including dwelling design, final layout and detailed landscaping) will be dealt with through separate future planning submissions.
We are hoping to secure the outline planning permission stage early in 2018, which will then be followed by the detailed submissions for housing layout approvals.
We would then hope to see housebuilding commence and sales material to be released early in 2019
We held a public consultation event at Somerford Alliance Resource Centre on Wednesday 30 September 2015 and you can view the information boards which were on display at our exhibition by clicking here.
Alongside our development proposals, the Hinton Admiral Estate have submitted a planning application 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.
