So surely the development west of waterlooville goes against government policy

So Surely the Development West of Waterlooville Goes Against Government Policy?

Yes it does, but there are reasons for this for the increased housing requirements in our area:

  • Information from the Census and patterns of migration/in-migration used to estimate future population

  • No. of households estimated (how people are likely to divide into houses)

  • Average household size is falling. Single person households on the increase

  • Social change (increase in divorce rate, people living longer, young people leaving home earlier) means we occupy more housing between us than we used to

  • Social change rather than population growth is primarily fuelling the need for more housing development


Development requirements west of waterlooville mda major development area

Development Requirements West of Waterlooville MDA (Major Development Area)

  • 2000 new homes before 2011

  • Reserve site for additional 1000 homes

  • 30ha of employment land

  • Provision for new schools, health care, open space, local shopping and other community facilities

  • Physical infrastructure: roads, sewerage, water supply, drainage

Illustrative Masterplan of the new West of Waterlooville development, used with permission of Winchester City Council.


Why was development at waterlooville proposed

Why was development at Waterlooville proposed?

  • 94, 290 new homes needed in Hampshire 1996 – 2011 to meet SE England’s housing needs

  • The Waterlooville MDA forms part of the Hampshire County Structure Plan’s housing strategy 2001 -2011

  • The housing strategy makes best use of existing ‘Brownfield’ or ‘previously developed’ land in urban areas before allocating Greenfield development.

  • BUT some Greenfield development is needed: four MDAs are proposed at Waterlooville, Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Andover


Why build mdas rather than smaller developments

Why Build MDAs rather than Smaller Developments?

  • Concentrate development adjacent to existing larger settlements rather than dispersing it

  • Disadvantages: What do you think?

  • Advantages:

    • minimises loss/damage to wider countryside

    • reduces need to travel/supports public transport

    • supports new/existing community facilities and services

    • contributes to regeneration of existing urban areas

    • economies of scale: infrastructure investment


Advantages of waterlooville

Advantages of Waterlooville

  • Free from major constraint e.g. No major environmental constraint/spare transport and service infrastructure capacity

  • South East Hampshire in need of regeneration – new jobs and investment

  • Adjacent to Waterlooville Town Centre – completes fourth quadrant of the town

  • Close proximity to existing facilities and services in Waterlooville reducing need to travel

  • Adjacent to A3 public transport priority corridor to Portsmouth


What do you think

What do You Think?

  • Do you think that the Waterlooville MDA is a good thing?

  • Do you think that perhaps they could have redeveloped other areas first?

  • Where would you have built more housing?

  • Would you have done a number of small developments rather than one big one?

  • THE KEY QUESTION- WOULD YOU HAVE FAVOURED BROWNFIELD REDEVELOPMENT?

  • We have to be careful to manage the Rural-Urban Fringe effectively!
