The site is situated on the south-western border of the village next to Havant Thicket. The enclosed nature of the site with wooded surroundings and provide a suitable location for a small-scale development within the Parish.
Partnering with Vivid Homes (as the Registered Social Landlord) and under the Falcon Communities brand, the proposal is to deliver 100% Shared Ownership housing for those with immediate connections to the village.
As an independent housing needs survey was undertaken in Spring 2020 by Action Hampshire, having engaged with the Parish Council and Local Planning Authority. The survey provided an evidence base of considerable need of Shared Ownership tenure housing for locally connected residents.
A planning application is due for submission in Spring 2021 subject to further public engagement.
