Developer Reflect Homes plans 19 new 'affordable' homes at Gang Warily Farm near Fawley
A DEVELOPER has submitted a planning application to New Forest District Council to build 19 new affordable homes on farmland near Fawley.
Reflect Homes Ltd has requested to demolish the existing farmhouse at Gang Warily Farm, Newlands Road, and build 14 houses, one bungalow and four flats on the 0.50-hectare site.
The homes would be a mixture of rent and shared ownership. There would also be 37 parking spaces and the existing access from Newlands Road would be retained.
The application said: "Reflect Homes Ltd is looking to bring this site forward for development. This will involve the demolition of the existing on-site dwelling and associated outbuilding with provision for 19 dwellings with associated amenity space and landscaping.
"The proposed development will deliver 19 genuinely affordable units to be controlled by Sovereign Housing Association, with residents having 24-hour access to the housing response team.
"Sovereign Housing builds new homes to the highest of modern standards with exceptional levels of insulation and renewable energy features resulting in homes that are very cheap to run and maintain."
It added: "All houses and flats are to have a level threshold to the front entrance, with gardens being accessed via pathways enabling bins and garden waste to be easily transported to the front of the property, together with cycle access to the secure store located in each private garden."
It added there will be new hedge and native tree planting, to include a high percentage of native species in keeping with the setting of the proposed development.
The public consultation period ends on 18th January 2022 after which NFDC will make its decision. So far there have been no representations submitted either for or against the plans.
Fawley Parish Council is also yet to discuss the application and make its views known to the district council.
