Fordingbridge, Hampshire

4 hectares of land used to create 74 new homes

In 2017 Metis Homes land and planning team identified the residential development potential of just under 4 hectares of land to the north of Fordingbridge in Hampshire.

Having agreed terms with the landowners the Metis planning team promoted the land formally through the New Forest District Council Local Plan process resulting in its formal allocation for housing within the adopted Local Plan. Alongside its formal adoption, the Metis Homes team began a process of engagement with the community, all key stakeholders and officers at the planning authority.  

Having carefully considered the feedback received, the planning team are in the process of preparing a full planning application for the site.  The plans comprise a high quality residential scheme of 74 new homes, including an element of affordable housing and a mix of both family housing and smaller homes.  The plans also feature the retention of a mature landscape setting together with new public open space incorporating walking and cycle routes alongside upgrading the local highway network and other key infrastructure.   

At Metis Homes, community consultation is a key component of every planning process to ensure that all of our development proposals are well informed by local expertise and priorities.  This approach delivers a legacy which landowners may be proud of and is a key component in the 100% success rate of the Metis planning team.
