Press Release

29 September 2017

Council responds to Welborne land acquisition

Fareham Borough Council is recommending the termination of its procurement process to appoint a creative Delivery Partner for Welborne. 

The recommendation will be made to the Executive Committee on Monday 9th October.  It follows the announcement that Buckland Development Ltd (BDL) formally completed the purchase of Dean Farm on 22nd September 2017.  This means BDL now owns over 90% of the land required for Welborne.  The Company has further confirmed to the Council its desire to act as both landowner and developer in delivering Welborne Garden Village.

Cllr Seán Woodward, Leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: 'Since February 2016 the Council has worked towards securing the comprehensive development of Welborne via a hard-hitting Delivery Strategy. This included taking appropriate actions towards achieving comprehensive voluntary land assembly to allow the project to proceed. I am delighted that our strategy has proved successful and we can now move on.  We very much look forward to working closely with Buckland Development in delivering our vision of a Garden Village of which the Borough of Fareham can be justly proud.'
