At the recent public event where we presented our proposals for the land adjacent to Arlebury Park in Alresford we were delighted that over 75% of the town’s residents that attended were immediately supportive of our suggested scheme.
“We were very pleased that so many residents came along to our event, where we showcased our initial designs for this site, and that they took the time to give us some very useful feedback” commented MD Gregg Joslin “and, most importantly, that so many are supportive of what we would like to build here. While we have a reputation for good design and using high quality materials, I hope we also have a reputation for listening to local residents and for taking their comments into consideration, something we strive to do with all of our developments.”
This proposed site could see a range of housing delivered including open market sale, affordable housing and age restricted housing for the over-55s. In doing so, the land at Arlebury Park could aid the town in meeting its housing targets, set out within Winchester City Council’s Local Plan Part 1, and help to answer some of the questions posed by the subsequent Local Plan Part 2 consultation process* which concluded at the end of December 2015.
Winchester City Council will now consider all the representations made to date and will, in the spring, proceed with a submission of the Local Plan for further examination.
*Winchester City Council has gathered local views on the next phase of its Local Plan. The Local Plan Part 2 (or ‘LPP2’) will establish which sites in the District will help it meet its housing needs until 2031. As part of LPP2, Alresford will need to find sites for around 500 new homes to be built during this period, a significant proportion of which will need to be delivered on greenfield sites.
