Work starts next year on new village near Fleet

Published at 5:46am 10th September 2018. (Updated at 11:47am 10th September 2018)

Construction on a new 70-acre village near Fleet is set to begin in early 2019.

Hartland Village will include a collection of new homes and shops, as well as a 70 acre country park, seven minutes' drive away from Fleet station.

Hart District Council says planning has been approved for up to 1,500 homes, which will be a mixture of houses and flats.

It said 20% of the properties will be affordable homes.

There are also proposals for a primary free school, scheduled to open in September 2022.

Planning permission for the school is yet to be granted, but Hampshire County Council have told Eagle Radio "there is a plan to construct a two form entry primary school".

Free schools are funded by the government and run by small organizations rather than local authorities. Seven other free schools have been approved in Hampshire, including one in Aldershot.

Paul Vallone, Executive Chairman of developers St Edward, said: “It is very exciting to have secured planning consent to create a new village in Hampshire - we can now get started on making the vision reality.

"Hartland Village will be an exceptional, sustainable place to live and enjoy, with a real sense of community, focused around a traditional village centre, primary school and idyllic woodland park."
