Live Planning Applications
Application submissions: April 2021
Determination: September 2021
Amended application for South Plot: June 2021
Amended application for North Plot: July 2021
Resolution to grant both applications: October 2021
Applications were been submitted to Winchester City Council in April 2021 for the Outline Planning Permission (detailed access, building layouts and building scale not reserved) for the North Plot (ref. 21/00570/OUT) and Full Planning Permission for the South Plot (ref. 21/01005/FUL). Amendments to the North & South Plot schemes were submitted in June and July 2021. Winchester City Council are reconsulting on the amendments from 4th to 25th August.
The North and South Plot applications were considered by the Joint West of Waterlooville Development Management Committee at its meeting on Tuesday 5th October 2021. The Committee resolved to grant planning permission for both applications subject to the execution of S106 legal agreements as per the reports written by the local planning authority’s case officer that accompanied each application to Committee.
Planning permission will be fully granted once the S106 agreements have been concluded. We will update the Newlands Business Park website as the legal agreements progress and upload the final approved drawings for both the North and South Plot schemes once planning permission has been fully granted.
Following the grant of planning permission, Dicentra Developments will have to complete the purchase of the site from Taylor Wimpey, the landowner.
The local planning authority has attached planning conditions, requiring further details in relation to the design, construction process and operations of the development of Newlands Business Park before construction work can proceed. Residents and the local community will have an opportunity to make representations on these matters.
Construction and Delivery
Spring/Summer 2022 onwards
Once the land purchase has been completed and planning conditions have been discharged construction of Newlands Business Park can commence. This is likely to be phased to meet market demand and may take between 18 to 24 months, subject to restrictions from Covid-19.
We understand there will be some noise, dust and traffic impacts associated with the construction but please understand these are short-term impacts which Dicentra Developments will mitigate via a Construction Management Plan. Newlands Parish Council, residents and the local community will have an opportunity to comment on the Construction Management Plan and provide ideas and suggestions on how the public can influence the construction process. This could include offering contracts, trade jobs, apprenticeship schemes, training/education and work experience to local businesses and people. There could also be opportunities for art to be displayed on hoardings for the development sites.
Newlands Business Park Construction Charter
Dicentra Developments is committed to engaging with the local community through the construction process and responding positively to local ideas. The company has drafted a Charter outlining key objectives during construction which will help it meet community aspirations and priorities.
