How we are transforming the old Post Office site
We are undertaking the regeneration of the former Post Office site on High Street, Eastleigh following planning approval that was granted by Eastleigh Local Area Committee.
The old Post Office and sorting office site is owned by the Council and will form part of our ongoing plan to promote economic regeneration within the town centre. The redevelopment will include the provision of commercial space on the ground floor of both buildings including the frontage onto High Street that was once occupied by the Post Office. The scheme will also provide improved links between High Street and Market Street.
It will also provide town centre residential rented accommodation on the upper floors in both buildings. In total it is proposed there will be 10 one bedroom flats and 18 two bedroom flats across the two buildings. All of the flats will be for made available for rent with 10 of them provided for affordable rent.
The exciting scheme not only develops a brown field site but will help kickstart the regeneration of the town centre. It will provide retail space as well as much needed affordable housing for people who want the advantages of town centre living such as access to local shops and facilities together with the convenience of nearby bus and rail links.
