Building homes, communities and futures since 1987

Project: North Stoneham Park, Stoneham Lane, Southampton

North Stoneham Park is a substantial parcel of land of some 120 acres set on the outskirts of Eastleigh within an area bordered by Chestnut Avenue, Stoneham Way and Home Wood. Plans to develop a landmark mixed-use, residential project on this site have been overwhelmingly backed by Eastleigh and Test Valley Borough Councils who share the administrative boundary on which the land sits.

The site was identified in Eastleigh Borough Council’s Pre-Submission Local Plan 2011-29 and allocated as a strategic location for development to include housing and associated facilities and services. The Council’s Emerging Local Plan is due to be adopted in 2015 and reflects the need to build new homes, including affordable homes and those that meet the needs of older residents.

By way of a solution to the current shortfall of housing land supply and affordable local housing, Highwood’s multi-million pound complex will provide 1100 new homes, including affordable housing, a care village, including a 60-bed care home and assisted and independent living units, a primary school, nursery, community centre, retail units and magnificent sports facilities that dramatically enhance the town’s residential and leisure resources.

The success of the planning application was the result of a close collaboration with the Councils regarding housing need and county conservationists to ensure any concerns regarding sustainability and the protection of the site’s historic areas were addressed. A series of public exhibitions were also held to give local residents the opportunity to contribute their views to the project.

In addition to Highwood’s construction plans, beautiful landscaped public open spaces, green infrastructure and ecologically sensitive habitats will be created as part of the scheme. Potential fears about the project’s impact on the local road network have also been allayed by plans to upgrade local highway junctions, create a new road to serve the development and ease the traffic flows on Stoneham Lane and the M27 junctions.

Highwood held a Public Consultation on 12th December 2016, to see the exhibition boards please click here.
