An exciting ground breaking partnership between Eastleigh Borough Council and developer Galliford Try has been established to deliver a new community at Horton Heath.
The land that is bordered by Burnett’s Lane, Moorgreen Road, Allington Lane and Chalcroft Business Park has been acquired by the Council and Galliford Try will take on the master developer role as well as managing the project.
By retaining ownership of the site we can accelerate and influence the quantity, mix, and tenure of new homes and also protect and enhance the ecological aspects of the site.
Crucially we can also ensure that the key elements of infrastructure works needed to bring forward the site are also provided including roads and other community facilities ie communal recreational facilities and open spaces.
The development has been allocated significant funding by Homes England ‘Housing Infrastructure Fund’ and the Local Authority Accelerated Construction fund both are subject to final discussions.
Next year there will be opportunities for the local community to find out more and give feedback on the proposals as part of a public consultation process and we will be working closely with parish councils and other community groups too.
