In April 2015, and following many years of consultation with local residents, East Hampshire District Council approved plans to transform one of the largest towns in Hampshire, Whitehill & Bordon.
Plans for the scheme were submitted by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation – the property arm of the Ministry of Defence. The development of this former garrison town will be carried out as a joint venture between regeneration specialists Dorchester Living and one of the UK’s largest housebuilders, Taylor Wimpey UK. We will be working together to create a better place to live, work, and enjoy life.
The 20 year contract will completely transform the area creating a new high quality destination with lots to offer for everyone. The 200 hectare regeneration will create:
- 2,400 new sustainable homes for private sale, affordable housing, social rent and shared ownership
- A new high quality town centre – new shops, offices, cafes, restaurants, a food store
- A new six lane swimming pool in a new leisure centre, a new school and sports pitches
- 3,000 new jobs
- A new secondary school and expanded primary school
- A new health centre and GP surgery
- Extensive areas of public open space and new play areas
- New allotment space
- The southern section of the new relief road, an alternative through route to the A325
- A new network of footpaths and cycleways
- An arts and cultural centre
- Conversion of the Hogmoor Inclosure, a 54-hectare area into a fantastic green space for the community, with car parks, footpaths and cycle routes. Whitehill and Bordon will have the third largest SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace) in the country
Town Centre Community Exhibition.
Take a look at the proposed new town centre video. The route takes you along the high street, through the town square, past the cinema, theatre and Makers Market and into the town park.
