Decision to approve Manydown outline planning application

Councillors on Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s Development Control Committee took the decision to grant outline planning permission for a new garden community at Manydown at a virtual meeting on Wednesday 8 July.

The main principles of the development, such as its type and size and its main vehicular access points, are now agreed. But future planning applications will cover its exact layout, design and style.

“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 deliver housing and other valued amenities. As part of this it is crucial that we had 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
