Planning has been submitted for the Monksbrook Estate in Eastleigh, Hampshire, a phased estate regeneration programme to provide more homes in an area of high demand by replacing 164 outmoded houses with 237 mixed tenure new homes. The development provides sustainable homes to Code Level 4, giving tenants modern houses with lower running costs. The masterplan placed great importance on the public realm, fostering community and creating a ‘sense of place’. A consultation plan has been used to structure input from numerous stakeholders including Planners, Councillors and residents, and draw them into the design process.
