Land East of Botley, Southampton

Providing a new care village, industrial and commercial workspace as well as part of the much-anticipated Botley bypass.

Highwood’s Sherecroft Farm project is an exciting development that will dramatically enhance this Hampshire village with a much-needed bypass and a fabulous new care village that will create new jobs for the local community and high-end residential care for those in their later years.

The Botley by-pass has long been a matter of contention for local residents and the provision of a new route that will direct fast flowing traffic away from the village centre will be a welcome relief. We will deliver a section of this new road as part of our plans for the wider Sherecroft Farm scheme.

Superb community facilities, including a spa, hairdressing salon, small cinema, shops and restaurants.

In addition to the highways element, this high calibre project features a high-end later years residential scheme that represents our latest care development. It will comprise a care home, assisted living apartments, independent living bungalows and cottages and superb community facilities, including a spa, hairdressing salon, small cinema, shops and restaurants. The new care village will be set within beautifully landscaped grounds and built to Highwood’s exceptional standards of construction. 

In line with all our high profile projects, we’re collaborating closely with local residents and councils; one of the challenges on this project is working with both Winchester City Council and Eastleigh Borough Council as the land straddles both parties’ jurisdiction. We hope to submit outline plans in 2018 and will be holding public exhibitions to give local residents the opportunity to view our plans, ask questions and, of course, to give us feedback on our proposals. Dates for these events will be announced in the coming months.
