West of Waterlooville

The West of Waterlooville Major Development Area is located in the south eastern corner of the District and will provide 3,000 new homes as part of a new community, 2 primary schools, leisure, retail, employment and community facilities including much needed affordable housing. This is being complemented by an extensive restoration and conservation programme for meadows, ancient woodland and the river Wallington.

The site is owned by and being developed by Taylor Wimpey PLC and Grainger PLC, and is administered by both Winchester City Council, and Havant Borough Council. The rate of housebuilding will match market conditions, and is expected to be nearing completion around 2030.
