Land East of Basingstoke – project update September 2023

The project team has submitted a request for an EIA Scoping Opinion to Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council (BDBC) as the local planning authority. The submission comprises a scoping report and covering letter. The scoping report is a technical document, seeking feedback from BDBC and other consultees on the topics to be addressed in an Environmental Statement for the project, for example transport, ecology, water and landscape.

The request is a requirement under planning regulations and the documents are available publicly on BDBC’s website: 23/02280/ENS | Request for a Scoping opinion for up to 900 dwellings with associated community centre, shops, primary school nursery provision, allotments, neighbourhood park, public open space and gypsy and traveller provision | Land East Of Basingstoke Whitmarsh Lane Chineham Hampshire.

BDBC have a five-week consultation period, before responding in writing, although they may ask for an extension of time. The final Environmental Statement will be submitted alongside the planning application for the land.
