HGP recently won a housing scheme bid with ZeroC to build 138 houses across two sites in Bordon, Hampshire. Bordon is currently undergoing substantial regeneration as the MOD release land for development, with the Prince Philip Barracks influencing the character and structure for each area of the town.
The two sites fall within ‘Woodland Cluster’ zones defining each site as a separate cluster set within the existing woodland. Both will have a distinct communal core – a place where residents can meet, children can play, and communal life is encouraged. It is intended for these spaces to be actively managed by the residents. The interface between these spaces and the buildings has been designed to provide passive surveillance, both in and outward looking, while maintaining a sensitivity to the landscaped edges of the sites. The first parcel is a mix of 3, 4, and 5 bed houses with a focus on family dwellings. There is a no build zone on the second parcel driving a higher density with a focus 3 and 4 houses.
A reserved matters application was submitted in December 2017 and a decision is expected in the coming weeks, with the intention to start construction soon after.
