About the site
Named after the historical Royal Forest of Bere, Berewood is located west of Waterlooville in Hampshire.
In 2012 Grainger Plc received outline planning permission for the 500 acre site, and acts as master developer; preparing and selling parcels of land to house builders, managing the infrastructure, green space, and legal obligations with the local councils.
The majority of the development area is within Winchester City Council boundaries, but a small part is within Havant Borough. The two authorities are working in partnership as the community grows.
When complete the development will offer:
- Approx. 2,650 homes
- 2 primary schools
- Village centre with shops and amenities, a health centre, nursery, and assisted living
- Proxima Park business park
- 2 allotment sites
- 250 acres of green space including the River Wallington, landscaped parks, meadows, and a community nature reserve
