Manydown garden community

The Manydown garden community is being created through a pioneering new partnership that cements the long-term commitment of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council with the expertise and track record of the UK’s leading master developer Urban&Civic, backed by global charitable foundation The Wellcome Trust.

The main principles of the development were agreed following the decision to grant outline planning permission for Manydown. But its layout, design and style will be decided through future planning applications submitted by the partnership.

More information on the principles agreed through the outline planning application is available here

Next steps

Continuing to involve local communities in shaping the Manydown development, the partnership will start engagement with residents, local groups and businesses in coming months as it starts to draw up the detailed plans for Manydown. This will be ahead of submitting the first planning applications for early infrastructure and the layouts and designs for the initial phase of new homes.

Early estimations are that Manydown could be welcoming its first residents within three years.  This allows time for the next stages of the planning process, including community engagement and further consultation. This would be followed by infrastructure work on site, including access roads and utilities, paving the way for building homes, alongside wider community facilities.
