Overview

Welcome to this community website supporting our proposals for the residential development at St Swithun Wells Church and Adjacent Land, Allington Lane, Fair Oak.

In late 2014, outline planning permission was allowed on appeal for 72 new homes at land adjacent to St Swithun Wells Church, Allington Lane in Fair Oak and the reconfiguration of the existing church car park. The land forms part of a reserve allocation in the adopted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan and is adjacent to the built-up limits of Fair Oak.

Linden Homes was not involved with the outline application, but has since acquired an interest in the site, and is bringing forward a reserved matters planning application.

The outline planning application established the principle of residential development for up to 72 units at this site and also approved the access to the development in detail. The reserved matters application will contain remaining details of layout and design of the development, including landscaping, following the principles established by the outline planning application.

Summary of proposals

The outline planning permission has already approved the principle of the site’s redevelopment with new homes, as well as the access arrangements. These elements are now fixed.

A reserved matters application now needs to agree matters of detail, such as design and landscaping.

Linden Homes’ proposals will deliver a high-quality development that will make a valuable contribution towards Eastleigh Borough
Council’s identified housing need. The detailed proposals include:

  • 72 new homes, of which 35% would be designated as affordable
  • A range of new homes, including 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses
  • Public Open Space, including an equipped children’s play area, and land reserved for ecological mitigation
  • Design which reinforces local distinctiveness and uses good quality materials
  • Utilisation of the existing vehicular access into the site, with a secondary vehicular access for 15 properties further to the south
  • Pedestrian and cycle links to the public footpath to the north of the site

Scale and massing

The proposed new homes are predominantly two storeys in height, with some two and a half storey homes, and a low number of three storey properties in less sensitive areas carefully positioned to add interest to the design of the scheme.

Design and layout

The visual break between the site and the existing properties to the north creates an opportunity to incorporate designs and a materials palette that will give the development its own distinctive character and sense of place. The scheme will be characterised by brick-built facades and tiled roofs appropriate to this location. The site layout has been designed to accord with Eastleigh Borough Council’s and other relevant policy, guidance and standards (e.g. on garden sizes, parking, bin storage etc).

Landscaping and public open space

A comprehensive landscaping scheme incorporates new planting across the site to supplement retention of the majority of existing trees.
The scheme provides new public open space, including a large area for ecological mitigation to the east and an equipped play area in the centre of the site.

The Site

The site comprises the St. Swithun Wells Church and adjacent land, off Allington Lane in Fair Oak. The land forms part of a reserve allocation in the adopted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan and is adjacent to the built-up limits of Fair Oak.

Under the established planning consent, the Church car park would be reconfigured, with 72 homes proposed for the adjacent land.

Linden Homes believes that a high-quality residential scheme on this site offers an opportunity to deliver a sensitive development that will contribute to Eastleigh Borough Council’s identified housing need and provide associated benefits for the local community.

Benefits

Linden Homes’ proposals would deliver a number of benefits to the local community, including:

  • 72 new homes, including 25 affordable homes - the housing will include a mix of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 & 4 bedroom houses
  • Comprehensive landscaping and Public Open Space, including an equipped children’s play area and land reserved for ecological mitigation
  • Enhancements to the existing Church car park
  • Section 106 contributions in line with the existing outline planning consent

Next Steps

Linden Homes has now submitted a reserved matters planning application to Eastleigh Borough Council.

The application has been registred (REF: RM/17/81871) and there is now an opportunity to comment on the planning application during the Council’s statutory consultation period.
