Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) – February 2021

An FAQ document HERE has been prepared based on initial questions raised during early engagement with representatives of Bransgore Parish Council, Sopley Parish Council and Heatherstone Grange Residents Association in October 2020.

This will be updated following the end of our public consultation in March 2021.

The period for submission of comments has now closed. We shall publish an updated FAQ document on this page in due course.

Question 1: Did you know that the site is allocated for development in the New Forest Local Plan?

Question 2: The proposals are based on a series of key design and development principles. Please indicate how important you think these principles are below:

Dwellings set back from Derritt Lane with natural grassland edges allowing protection space for the mature trees.

Retention of hedgerow boundaries complemented with new native planting to create a ‘green and leafy’ feel.

Welcoming village green to the east marking an arrival to Bransgore and providing space for play and recreation.

Linear community parkland extending along the southern edge.

New cycle and footpath connections helping to integrate the development with the village.

Ponds and swales providing a sustainable system for managing surface water and encouraging biodiversity.

A rural character with informal lanes, driveways and small courtyard spaces fronted by cottages and ‘barn’ style dwellings.

Two vehicular access connections to Derritt Lane, positioned to minimise tree loss and to help slow traffic.

A balanced housing mix (apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached) to meet local needs.

Question 3: Are there parts of the scheme which you think could be improved?

Question 4: If you would like to make any further general comments, please do so below.
