Proposed Affordable Rural Housing in
Welcome to the online consultation pages from English Rural.
We are working with the Parish Council, Hart District Council and the Hampshire Rural Housing Enabler to bring forward a small development of 8 homes for local people and want your views.
You can also register your interest in living in one of our homes.
What Is Proposed?
We are proposing to design, build and manage a single development of affordable homes, to serve those households living or working within the Parish.
The Winchfield Parish, Housing Needs Survey http://www.winchfield-pc.org.uk/community/winchfield-parish-council-7804/affordable-homes/ identified a need for 6-8 affordable homes.
With input from local landowners, Hart District Council Housing Officers, the Rural Housing Enabler and English Rural, 2 sites have emerged, upon which we are seeking the views of the local community.
Subject to further assessment of the selected site and the design evolution, a mix of homes is required to help to meet current and future housings needs from the community. This could include;
• 2x 1 Bedroom Maisonettes.
• 3x 2 Bedroom Houses
• 1x 3 Bedroom House
The preferred tenure for these homes is rented affordable.
In each scheme 2 Custom Build homes are proposed for the current landowners and their family; which also serve to provide a cross subsidy to the affordable homes.
Visit the 'Visuals' page to view sketch ideas of what the site layouts might look like.
The location of the two shortlisted sites are identified on the adjacent map as Site 1 and Site 2.
