Site Information

The site lies on the northern edge of the village of Lindford, in East Hampshire. It extends to just under 2.5 hectares of open countryside. The village lies approximately 1 mile north of Boden, 7 miles east of Alton and 8-10 miles south of the larger towns of Farnham and Aldershot. The village has good highway connections, with the A325 providing access to the A31 to the north and the A3 to the south. The nearest railway station is in the town of Liphock, approximately 4 miles to the south east of the village.

The village of Lindford is home to around 2,700 residents. It is part of a collection of several small settlements inkling Borden, Headley and Whitehill. It has a range of services including a local shop, post office, dentist, hairdresser, church and village hall.

The site lies north of an existing residential area, with mature woodland to the north east and west. The site boundary is defied by the River Wey. The site appears to be free from any major physical constraints aside from an area of mature planting which bisects the site.

Our Planning Department Comments

Latest Planning Update

As the July planning update described, our site remains under assessment for its development potential with particular focus on its capacity to accommodate a high value care home, specifically within the Dementia Care sector.

We are hoping for some clarity on a timeline for the balance of the assessment by the end of September but, aside from a further site visit having been conducted by the LPA, it has been advised that no further clarity will be provided before year end. Whilst we await this information we continue to:

Work constraining issues raised by the LPA through their site visits, most specifically through access.
Engage with independent Care home Providers.

We expect that there should be some further clarity on timescales by end of January 2020.
