A thriving new community of up to 3,520 new homes plus community facilities, schools, businesses, shops and a new 250-acre country park is set to be created at Manydown in Basingstoke.

The main principles of the development have been agreed, following the decision by the local planning authority to grant outline planning permission in July 2020. But future planning applications will cover its exact layout, design and style. More information on the proposals in the outline planning application can be found here

The new development is set to be delivered through a unique partnership that cements the long-term commitment of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council with the expertise of master developer Urban&Civic, supported by global charitable foundation the Wellcome Trust.

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.

“With a formidable public-private partnership now in place I am confident that all the comprehensive preparations, creative 21st century urban design and planning and attention to the views of our residents will be put to excellent effect in realising a new community and urban extension for Basingstoke. Our high ambition is to ensure that when Manydown is built it will be regarded as a standout development across the country in concept and execution, and, most importantly, cherished by those who make their homes and lives there.”
Cllr John Izett, Cabinet member for Manydown, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council
