Hook (Hart District)
The site is located on the northern part of Hook village, abutting the existing settlement boundary and fronting on to Reading Road, which is largely screened by trees and hedgerows. A proposal to bring forward an affordable housing scheme for first time buyers has been proposed, with a Pre-Application submitted to Hart District Council and initial engagement with Hook Parish Council being undertaken.
In September 2020, Falcon Communities, commissioned Hampshire Homes Hub to independently carry out a survey in the Parish to establish local housing need for Affordable Home Ownership, which prioritises local residents for the homes. The results of the housing need survey evidenced a significant local need for affordable home ownership and particularly discount market housing.
Further engagement will be held with key stakeholders and the local community, working towards a planning application in Summer 2021 for approx. 20 affordable homes.
