Give your views on redevelopment at Basingstoke golf course

News release 8499, published on 12 Jul 2019
Local residents are being asked to help shape the redevelopment of the Basingstoke golf course site where approximately 1,000 new homes will be built.


A consultation on the Basingstoke Golf Course Brief Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is now open until Monday 5 August. It gives local people the chance to put forward their views on what is needed, including the type and size of homes, community facilities, transport, access, environmental quality, design and layout, before a decision is taken on the final document, due to be adopted in October 2019.


The site was allocated for development in the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan in 2016, and the SPD has been prepared by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in its role as the Local Planning Authority.


It will be used to help determine planning applications on the site, including the current proposal by Bloor Homes and Basingstoke Golf Club to develop the Winchester Road site with up to 1,100 homes and community amenities.


Cabinet Member for Planning, Infrastructure and Natural Environment Cllr Mark Ruffell said: “The council is keen to get people’s views on what they want to see on the proposed redevelopment and I encourage everyone to respond to this consultation, which will run until Monday 5 August 2019. 

"It is important to gather local opinions in order to get the best possible outcome for this development.”

The Basingstoke Golf Course Development Brief SPD can be viewed online at: www.basingstoke.gov.uk/planning-policy-consultations.  


It is also available for public inspection at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Civic Offices and at all public libraries in the borough during normal opening hours.
