Proposed Development of School Extension Land

Monday, March 13, 2023

Development proposals are being worked up to enable the submission of a Reserved Matters Application for 27 dwellings on land known as the School Extension Land, which is located in the northern area of Berewood.

The site sits to the west of Berewood Primary School and is south to a section of the completed River Wallington Community Nature Reserve, with residential housing to the west and south.

The site is identified within the approved outline masterplan as land to accommodate the extension of the primary school, should it be necessary. Recent conversations with Hampshire County Council Education have confirmed that the Northern Primary School Extension Land will not be required for use by the school and as such, Grainger now seeks to progress residential development on the land.

The proposal comprises 27 dwelling houses comprising a mix of two and three-bed units. Access to the site is proposed to be via Nicholson Way.

The residential layout has been designed to enable pedestrian access through to the River Wallington Community Nature reserve to the north and facilitate access to the wider footpath network. The linear route through the site allows for planting which will create an avenue of trees, providing both an attractive landscape setting and a continuous ecological corridor.

Please send any comments or enquiries by Friday 24 March 2023 to:, or call Savills on 023 8071 3900

A public presentation of the plans will be taking place at:

Newlands Parish Council AGM
Thursday 30th March, 7:30pm

Residents are invited to attend.
