Site location and context

The c.10.6 hectare site is located adjacent to Selborne Road, to the south of Alton, approximately a mile from the town centre. The A31 is located just to the south of the site and the Mid-Hants Heritage railway line runs to the north of the site. 

East Hampshire District Council has already granted outline planning consent on the land. This has approved the principle of the residential development of the site and access via a new roundabout from Selborne Road.  The site is also allocated for 249 new homes in the adopted Alton Neighbourhood Plan.

The site slopes, with the highest point being positioned at the north-eastern end of the site. There has been some recent hedge removal at the site frontage to facilitate the delivery of the future site access which has been approved in detail. Generally, however, the site remains well enclosed by existing tree and hedge planting, restricting long distance views of the site from the surrounding countryside and South Down National Park. The site is dissected by two rows of hedge and tree planting which provide three distinct parcels of land.
