Consultation

Hampshire County Council consulted the local community and stakeholders about the proposals for the Uplands Farm Estate to help establish a high-quality development that integrates with the existing community, maximises local benefits and addresses potential impacts.

A public consultation was held on the emerging outline proposals for the Uplands Farm Estate (22 September to 20 October 2017). Hampshire County Council, in partnership with Wildern Academy Trust and the Department for Education, then consulted on detailed proposals for new schools in the local area, including a 7-form entry secondary school on the Woodhouse Lane site (18 December 2017 to 31 January 2018).

Over 400 people attended consultation events for the Uplands Farm Estate proposals.  95 completed questionnaires were returned (either electronically or in hard copy) and a further 39 comments were received via email and telephone calls for the consultation on the outline proposals and a further 20 responses were received regarding the detailed proposals for a new secondary school on the Woodhouse Lane site.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the consultation and provided comments and suggestions on the emerging proposals.  All responses have been reviewed and feedback considered as we developed the masterplan proposals and the detailed proposals for the new secondary school.  A response to the key issues received and how they have been addressed is provided in the Statement of Community Involvements, which forms part of the supporting documentation for the planning applications, which can be viewed on Eastleigh Borough Council’s website.

Community Forum

A Community Forum will be established to provide an opportunity for representatives of the local community and stakeholders to work with the project team and selected developers as the detailed proposals for the Uplands Farm Estate sites evolve. This Forum can also be utilised through the planning, development and delivery stages and could evolve into a Community Development Trust for the new community if appropriate.
