Hampshire's Bargate Homes, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VIVID, said it had acquired a 200-home site on 15.3 acres at Waterlooville, Hampshire, from developer Grainger plc.

The parcel has outline planning consent for up to 200 homes and would be part of Grainger’s wider Berewood garden village Masterplan, first produced ten years ago, which is delivering 2,550 homes and local amenities.

The garden village features five components - a market town, the hamlets, the employment hub, the countryside and river Wallington corridor and the garden suburb, in which the Bargate Homes’ scheme will be located.

The area for development encompasses the 10B Maple Grove and 11B Dauberton Glen land parcels.
Located off Marrelsmoor Avenue, Bargate Homes' part of the new community could be completed over five years and comprise two phases of development.

A reserved matters application will now be prepared by Bargate Homes for a collection of high EPC-rated one- to four-bedroom homes, 40% of which will be allocated as affordable.

Steve Birch, land and planning director at Bargate Homes, said: "This site is a major land acquisition to add to our extensive development portfolio, where we will ultimately see the delivery of 200 beautiful new mixed tenure homes.

"We are grateful to the Grainger team, their planning team at Savills, their agent Rosehill Advisors and our own legal team at Lester Aldridge who have all worked tirelessly to make this project a reality."

Waterlooville town centre, around six miles north of Portsmouth, sits only 1.4 miles and a five-minute drive away from the Berewood site.

Under the scheme, in addition to housing, the market town will be home to the local community with a primary school, shops, health and community facilities.

The garden suburb will have strong landscape with planting and vegetation commonly found in Hampshire, while the Hamlets will be an entirely residential area.

The employment hub will provide the largest proportion of employment for the site and link-up to areas in the Brambles Industrial Estate. The countryside and river Wallington corridor will provide a green boundary.
