Green light for 6,000-home Hampshire garden village despite nitrates concerns

Plans for a 6,000-home garden village have been approved by a south Hampshire council, even though it is one of a dozen local authorities grappling with a housing freeze brought on by nitrogen pollution.

Last month, the planning committee of Fareham Borough Council granted outline planning permission for Welborne Garden Village, which will see 377 hectares of agricultural land developed to the north of the town.

The proposals, first drawn up by Buckland Developers in 2017, also include detailed plans for the redesign of Junction 10 of the M27, as well as shops and community facilities, employment space, schools, parks and open spaces.
