Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, acting as landowners, have now submitted an outline planning application for land at Manydown.

Setting out the main principles for developing a thriving new community, the application is for 3,200 new homes of different types and sizes – for sale, for rent and affordable homes to rent and to buy.

Businesses, shops and community facilities, two new primary schools and land for a new secondary school are included in the application, as well as parks, children’s play facilities, sports pitches and allotments. A 250 acre country park would be created as part of the development.

The overall vision is to create a new community of connected neighbourhoods developed in a well-planned and coordinated way – combining the best features from Hampshire villages and towns with a contemporary sustainable design.

“We have a unique opportunity to do something outstanding in the way Manydown is developed – high quality, well planned, well designed and well-built new communities that work and have first class infrastructure – learning from the best examples of new development in this country and abroad. I have pledged to do my best to help achieve proposals that will have wide support and, in the years ahead, deliver housing and other valued amenities. As part of this it is crucial that we have real engagement of the local community from the very earliest stages of this project.”
Cllr John Izett, Cabinet member for Manydown, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council
