Update of the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Local Plan (2011-2029) and Viscount Lymington and Trustees of the Portsmouth Settled Estates

Viscount Lymington and the Trustees of the Portsmouth Settled Estates continue to develop the vision for the proposed Upper Swallick Garden Community and have now produced a Prospectus to accompany the original Concept Document, published in June 2020.

The Prospectus is not a detailed technical document but a reflection of the influencing factors and feedback, that the Upper Swallick Team have considered during the last twelve months.

In continuing this work Portsmouth Estates have confirmed various commitments they intend to implement. As Master Developer, Portsmouth Estates will:

To be known as 'Upper Swallick Garden Community' the proposal is for up to 2,500 homes, retail and employment and associated infrastructure. This Garden Community differs from many conventional developments in that the proposal is on land under the sole ownership of the Estate, and therefore gives freedom and choice as to the type of development proposed that is not always available elsewhere. It must be emphasised that these proposals are at an extremely early stage and subject to the Council’s update of the Local Plan. However, at the appropriate time there will be a comprehensive programme of information, engagement and consultation with the community and stakeholders.
