Welborne Planning Application

An outline planning application was submitted by Buckland Development Ltd in 2017 in respect of Welborne Garden Village. The main proposals in the application are outlined below:

4 January 2021 - Consultation on Welborne Planning Application

Fareham Borough Council has now received further amendments to the outline planning application documents submitted by Buckland Development Ltd in 2017 and 2019.  The Council is consulting on these amendments and all interested parties are able to comment until 25th January 2021. The Planning Committee will meet to determine the revised application on 27 January 2021.

You can view the planning application on its dedicated webpage. Please note that some of the files are very large and may take a long time to download.

Read a simple overview of the amended application

Buckland Development Limited has produced a Simple Guide To The Planning Application PDF (679 KB) which gives a good overview of their proposals. The Council has also put together banners PDF (5 MB) that highlight the main parts of the proposals including the phasing of development.

What has happened so far?

Before consulting on the Welborne Planning Application, the developer needed to make various amendments. These were submitted to the Council in January 2019 and consulted on from 10 January through to 1 March 2019.

Two Community Action Team (CAT) meetings took place for this consultation. The first took place at Knowle Village Hall on 1 February 2019; more information is available in the meeting notes  PDF (129 KB). An additional meeting took place at Ferneham Hall on 12 February 2019; more information is available in the meeting notes  PDF (150 KB).

The outline planning application was determined at a Planning Committee held on 16 October 2019 resulting in a resolution to grant.

You can view the amended planning application on the dedicated webpage.  Please note that some of the files are very large and may take a long time to download.

What has been amended?

The revised application includes a revised Supplementary Planning Statement dated December 2020 and Viability Statement dated December 2020 and appendices, together with the Environmental Impact Assessment Statement of Conformity, minor changes to the design of the A32 road layout and the Biodiversity Enhancement Strategy.

What is to be decided?

The application asks for a decision on the general principles of development, e.g. the number of houses.  If outline planning permission is granted, Buckland Development Limited will need to apply for further approval of the details (known as reserved matters) for most of the development.  This would include the specific height and design of buildings and where they will go.

The only parts of the application where Buckland Development Limited has submitted detailed designs is for the proposed works to Junction 10 and the A32.
