The outline planning application set the main principles of delivering a new community of up to 3,520 new homes, 250-acres of countryside park, two primary schools with land reserved for a potential secondary school, two local centres, businesses, shops and community facilities.


The development will provide a mix of homes for sale at property market prices and affordable housing. This is proposed to include one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes comprising both houses and flats to allow for a wide range of choice and opportunity.

Led by master developer Urban&Civic, the Manydown Development Vehicle is responsible for delivering the project and comprises Urban&Civic , Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, Hampshire County Council, and The Wellcome Trust.
Survey works are being undertaken at Manydown from early September to prepare the land for a start on site with infrastructure works in 2022 ahead of new homes in 2023.

Manydown is the new community of up to 3,520 homes in northwest Basingstoke. Infrastructure works are expected in 2022 ahead of new homes in 2023.

We will need to consider how we can develop different parts of the site at appropriate times. This will also help with managing the delivery of materials to the site, in order to minimise the impact on Roman Road. Residents will be engaged on the construction management plan which will set out how construction access is to be managed to minimise impacts.

Landscape and open green spaces are essential elements in the vision for Manydown. Open green spaces for people to enjoy, as well as trees planted along streets and areas that can support a variety of natural habitats, are essential to creating a successful community where people want to live. Approximately a third of the site area will consist of green infrastructure, including the park, which would be complemented by neighbourhood parks, squares, verges and other public areas and smaller open spaces, as well as gardens and playing fields.
Manydown will host a number of habitats, users and uses. We will ensure all ‘inhabitants’ are considered and find their place at Manydown through our close work with the project’s landscape architects and environmental specialists.

Biodiversity net gain and low carbon delivery are principles underpinning the way we will approach the delivery of Manydown. We will be working with housebuilders to bring forward plans that will drive high standards for environmental sustainability using industry best practices and expertise.

Responding to the climate emergency declared by both councils, streets and green spaces will be well connected whether walking or cycling. The new homes at Manydown will be designed to achieve high environmental standards including energy and water saving.
Forty percent of new homes at Manydown will be affordable housing with a tenure split of 70% for rent and 30% intermediate products, including shared ownership opportunities. This is in line with the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan.

Further information on the proposed housing mix for each phase of development will be provided as part of future more detailed planning applications.
