Welborne takes major step forward

Fareham Borough Council has today been advised that Buckland Development Ltd (BDL) has exchanged contracts on the acquisition of Dean Farm.  This means that BDL is now the major landowner for the site proposed for Welborne Garden Village.

Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward said: "I am delighted that BDL's persistence has led to its purchase of Dean Farm.  Land assembly has always been a key consideration for the Council in devising plans for the new community. 

"This is a major step forward for Welborne and I'm delighted with today's announcement.  The Council's planning team has been working with BDL over a number of years and will continue to do so.  Our aim is and always has been to secure a comprehensive delivery of the new Welborne Garden Village.  It will provide a very significant amount of the new homes required for Fareham over many years to come, including thousands of affordable homes and importantly all of the required infrastructure will be identified and funded including a new motorway junction, schools, open spaces, community centres and healthcare facilities."
