Welcome

Members of the public are invited to provide their views, to help shape proposals for new homes, a secondary school and community facilities on the Uplands Farm Estate in Botley and Hedge End - in response to local housing and education needs.

Uplands Farm Estate consists of two sites owned by Hampshire County Council - west of Woodhouse Lane in Hedge End, and north of Winchester Street in Botley.  Both sites have been identified for future housing development in Eastleigh Borough Council’s emerging Local Plan – on which the Borough Council is expected to consult later this year. Hampshire County Council is also proposing a bypass for Botley for which a planning application was submitted earlier in the summer.

Proposals are being developed for the two sites, which could include up to 1,025 new private and affordable homes of different types and sizes, a local centre with up to 1,000 square metres of employment spaces, public open space, sports pitches and additional allotments.

At the same time, and as part of the Uplands Farm Estate consultation, Wildern Academy Trust, working alongside the County Council, is also be inviting residents to feedback on proposals for a secondary school on the Woodhouse Lane site.

Public exhibitions took place on 22 and 23 September 2017 - see Consultation page for more details.
