Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
20th December 2021
2022 is almost upon us and Dicentra Developments has been progressing the S106 legal agreements for the North and South Plots with Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council and Taylor Wimpey (as current landowner). We hope these will be completed and the decision notices for both the North and South Plots issued early in the New Year.
The S106 agreements incorporate the delivery of landscape planting within Newlands Walk in order to enhance the overall biodiversity gains of development as well as double yellow lining along the ‘S’ bend at Darnel Road to allow for safe HGV movements along this stretch of highway.
We are grateful for the positive engagement and feedback received from Newlands Parish Council, residents, stakeholders and local community over 2021. We look forward to 2022 with optimism.
Dicentra Developments and the Newlands Business Park Development Team wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
North & South Plots - Approved
7th October 2021
The Joint West of Waterlooville Development Management Committee resolved to grant planning permission for the North and South Plot applications (refs. 21/00570/OUT & 21/01005/FUL) 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.
Thank you to those that supported the applications and this process. The website will be updated further once the S106 legal agreements have progressed and we will upload the final approved drawings for both the North and South Plot schemes once planning permission has been fully granted.
North & South Plot Planning Committee -
28th September 2021
The North and South Plot applications (refs. 21/00570/OUT & 21/01005/FUL) will be considered by the Joint West of Waterlooville Development Management Committee at its meeting on Tuesday 5th October 2021 at 11:30am at Havant Borough Council, Public Service Plaza, Civic Centre Road, Havant, PO9 2AX. The agenda for the Committee is available below.
Both applications have been recommended for APPROVAL subject to planning conditions and the execution of legal agreements in the interest of development control and mitigation. Such planning conditions and mitigation include the creation and submission of a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) to ensure noise, dust and traffic are kept to acceptable levels.
North & South Plot Reconsultation -
4th August 2021
Winchester City Council are reconsulting on the amendments of the North & South Plot schemes from 4th to 25th August. Full details of the applications are available on Winchester City Council’s website and can be searched using the application references:
North Plot: 21/00570/OUT
South Plot: 21/01005/FUL
We look forward to receiving your comments.
North Plot Design Amendments -
2nd August 2021
We have amended the design for the North Plot scheme following your comments along with those from Winchester City Council’s Urban Design Officer. The design alterations primarily relate to the repositioning and reorientation of building N1 which results in its set back further within the Plot and increases its separation to the adjacent residential buildings. Furthermore, the height of the parapet and eaves along the eastern elevation of N1 has been varied in order to break-up its “blocky” built-form and add visual interest along the Darnel Road streetscene.
We have also sought to enhance the amount of greenery onsite through the inclusion of new landscape features (including green walls and parking spaces and landscape bunds). This helps break-up the built-form of development and responds positively to the countryside character immediately to the west.
The amended North Plot drawings and material (with respect to design, drainage, sustainability and landscaping) have been submitted to Winchester City Council and should shortly be uploaded onto its website for your review.
South Plot Design Amendments -
21st June 2021
Thank you for your comments with respect to the live Newlands Business Park applications (North Plot – 21/00570/OUT and South Plot - 21/01005/FUL).
We have reviewed these along with comments from Winchester City Council’s Urban Design Officer and have made design based amendments to the South Plot scheme. This is in order to promote a more active frontage along Darnel Road, improve the contemporary and smart appearance of the units and help amalgamate their built-form with those neighbouring residential buildings.
The amended South Plot drawings and material (with respect to design, drainage and landscaping) along with CGIs which reflect the proposed change in appearance of the units have been submitted to Winchester City Council and should shortly be uploaded onto its website for your review.
Our design team are still reviewing the comments received for the North Plot together with those from Winchester City Council’s Urban Design Officer. We will update further in due course.
