The transformation Whitehill and Bordon, the former Hampshire garrison town, into a high quality living and working destination is well underway. And Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors have a critical role to play in the redevelopment process, alongside their clients, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth.
The development of this former garrison town was approved in 2015 by East Hampshire District Council. The 20 year contract will completely transform the area creating a new high quality destination with lots to offer for everyone. The 200 hectare regeneration will create:
2,400 new sustainable homes for private sale, affordable housing, social rent and shared ownership
A new high quality town centre – new shops, offices, cafes, restaurants, a food store
A new six lane swimming pool in a new leisure centre, a new school and sports pitches
3,000 new jobs
A new secondary school and expanded primary school
A new health centre and GP surgery
Extensive areas of public open space and new play areas
New roads and transport facilities
At the heart of the new town will be the town square where our clients, the RC Diocese, currently have a church and associated land. The regeneration will involve land swaps, a new build for the church and a relocation of the day nursery.
We are acting on behalf of our clients in their sale of the land, under the Charities Act, and will have a continuing role once building development is underway as monitoring agents.
An exciting project for Daniells Harrison to be involved in that will have a positive impact on Hampshire’s economy and environment.
Here is the latest timelaspe video shot over a two month period, showing the demolition and preparation for the new town taking shape.
