Fareham Borough Council has confirmed significant interest from potential delivery partners keen to bring forward the new Garden Village at Welborne.
Fifty-one expressions of interest were received in response to the Council's procurement notice issued in March 2017.
Following a detailed technical evaluation exercise, four highly experienced organisations will be invited to participate in the next formal stage of the procurement process. Each of the four organisations has a proven and significant track record in developing and delivering high quality, large scale, new communities and infrastructure projects across the UK.
Welborne provides an outstanding opportunity for the Council to work with a delivery partner to develop a bespoke new community. New homes, new jobs and community spaces for leisure and recreation will all be designed in from the outset, creating an attractive and desirable place to live.
Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: "I am delighted that key developers within the industry recognise the potential of Welborne and share our vision for a new community. The significant level of interest we have received firmly supports our view that Welborne provides a unique opportunity to deliver a new Garden Village, helping to meet our housing and growth aspirations. Welborne will be a great place to live and work and we look forward to working with the four selected bidders as we move on to the next stage of the procurement process."
