Chineham residents to get a chance to view new homes plan
PLANS to build 150 new homes in Chineham will go on display next week.
Pal Properties Limited and Savills plan to submit an application to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for outline planning permission to build up to 150 new homes on land at the edge of Hampshire International Business Park, in Crockford Lane.
A public exhibition, which will provide details on how the development could come forward and details on the layout, housing mix, landscaping and highway access, will now be held at the Christ Church, in Reading Road, Chineham next Wednesday between 3pm and 8pm.
Comments made at the exhibition will then be used as part of the future planning permission to be submitted to the borough council.
According to Pal Properties and Savills, the land being proposed for a site for the new homes has been marketed as office space but has received little or no interest to date.
A spokesman for Savills said: “The proposals for the land known as Aurum, has been born out of the proposed removal of the land from the employment designation at the business park by the borough council, and following extensive marketing of the land for an employment use.
“These initial proposals for a residential development will be on display at a public consultation event to be held on July 9 from 3pm to 8pm at the Christ Church, in Chineham.”
