A BUILDER has submitted a fresh planning application for new homes as part of major development near Basingstoke.

Bellway Homes, which is building 150 new homes on an 18-acre site off Reading Road in Sherfield on Loddon, has submitted a third outline planning application for 32 new homes.

The developer was previously granted permission to build 57 houses as part of the second phase of the development.

The third phase will also include the demolition of Redlands House and associated buildings on land located east of the A33 and to the north east of Basingstoke.

It will also include pedestrian links to phases 1 and 2, open space, sustainable drainage systems, an underground foul pumping station, and associated landscaping including minor earthworks for drainage infrastructure.

Redlands House, which is not a designated heritage asset or local listed building, has been unoccupied for some time and has become derelict and subject to vandalism.

Following the acquisition of the site, the building has been made more secure, according to the developer.

The development site is directly south and east of the existing phase 1 development, known as Longfield Place, which is currently under construction, and south-west of the phase 2 proposals.

The developer received planning permission for the first phase in September 2017 and the second phase in March 2022.

While the sale of houses built in phase 1 is currently underway, the developer is planning to commence construction of phase 2 houses later in 2023.

Vehicular access for phase 3 houses is proposed through phase 1 of the development.

The first residents moved into houses in the first phase in October 2022.

Approximately half of the houses in phase 1 have been constructed and occupied, the developer said.
