Press Release

Council consults on revisions to Welborne planning application

The Council will shortly be consulting on revisions put forward by developers Buckland Development Limited (Buckland) to the Welborne planning application.

The consultation will run for three weeks, from Monday 14 June to Monday 5 July, before being considered by the Planning Committee.

The latest proposals could see the developer’s contribution to Junction 10 potentially increase to as much as £50M. The revisions are proposed to make sure that funding is in place for all the improvement works required to Junction 10.

In addition to the proposals from Buckland, the Government is making increased levels of grant funding available to cover part of the construction costs of the Junction 10 works. Furthermore, the Government is funding some of the costs associated with the development and design of the Junction 10 scheme itself. 

The Government has recognised for some time that the work involved in delivering a Garden Village at Welborne will have significant cost implications for this Council.  Earlier this week it announced a further £130,000 of funding, in addition to the £1.1m already received, to assist the Council in bringing this exciting new project forward.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán  Woodward, said: ‘It has taken months of negotiations to get us to this position with Fareham Borough Council, Hampshire County Council, Buckland Development Limited and Central Government all working tirelessly to find a way forward on the funding for and delivery of the Junction 10 Scheme so that the much needed housing can be delivered.

'We are now really close to finalising an agreement that will unlock the millions of pounds of infrastructure funding for the M27 Junction 10 improvements that are critical to the success of Welborne Garden Village.

'Everyone involved has worked very hard to get us to this position.  I am delighted that there now appears to be a way forward on Junction 10 so that Welborne Garden Village can finally become a reality.”

From Monday 14 June, full details of the proposals will be available to view on the Council’s website by searching under Planning Reference: P/17/0266/OA.
