The Team

Linden Homes is the country’s fifth largest housebuilder. It is the housebuilding division of Galliford Try, one of the UK’s leading construction companies.

Linden Homes Southern is based in Southampton and is one of 11 regional offices that operate right across England, from Cornwall to Northumberland.

With a reputation for bespoke and creative developments in prime locations, Linden Homes prides itself on its high quality of design. The company was awarded Housebuilder of the Year at the Ideal Home Show Blue Ribbon Awards 2014, for the second consecutive year. Linden Homes was also named Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year at the What House? Awards 2014.

Engaging with local communities is central to the work that we do. We understand that if we are to deliver houses that not only meet the aspirations of those who seek to live in them but also enhance the existing neighbourhood, then we need to talk to and engage with local people.

By seeking out local knowledge and listening to local opinion, we are able to build a fuller picture. We can identify the wider benefits that development can bring to the existing community.

The Site

Winchester City Council’s (WCC) is draft Local Plan Part 2 – the document that will guide the shape of future development in the district up to 2031 – outlines a minimum of 2,500 new homes are to be provided in Winchester District’s Market Town and ‘Larger Villages’.

Waltham Chase has been identified in Winchester’s Local Plan Part 1 (Policy MTRA2) to need 250 new homes to meet the village’s future housing requirements.

The site at Sandy Lane is included as ‘WC3’ in the draft Local Plan Part 2. The Local Plan outlines that the site could deliver about 60 new homes to help meet the future housing needs of the village.

WCC, along with Shedfield Parish Council, considered the sites that have come forward during the Local Plan process by taking account of their constraints and opportunities; such as landscape, transport and accessibility, as well as the resident response to the sites during community consultation.

Linden Homes prepared its plans for the site having considered the above and the contents of the draft allocation policy. As part of the preparation of these plans, Linden Homes carried out a range of technical studies and discussed its proposals with officers at WCC, Hampshire County Council, elected representatives and the site’s immediate neighbours.

Development details:

  • 63 new open market and affordable homes
  • Of the 63 new homes, 25 (40%) are designated as ‘affordable’
  • Use of the existing Sandy Lane access which serves existing housing; upgraded and improved to accommodate the scheme (including widening works to Sandy Lane)
  • A generous level of allocated resident and visitor parking provision which meets Council policy
  • On-site public open space (approx. 6000 sq. metres), which incorporates informal spaces and play areas
  • Significant new boundary planting and retention of existing hedgerows and high value trees, where possible
  • A scheme which respects the structure, density and character of Waltham Chase
  • A drainage strategy that takes surface water to the off-site network, ensuring a significant reduction of surface water on the site and run-off to adjoining land

Next Steps

Following the completion of further technical work, Linden Homes is now beginning construction work on-site.
