Basingstoke Gateway, Oakdown Farm

Newlands has responded positively to the previous Appeal Inspector’s comments and is bringing forward a full planning application for critical supply chain infrastructure. This is made up of eight high-quality, environmentally sustainable buildings, embedded within generous landscaped areas, that will assist the Council in satisfying a longstanding and growing unmet need for this use in a strategic and highly accessible location.

Newlands has undertaken public consultation on these proposals throughout November 2023. You can still view the proposals and talk to the project team via this website. We would like to thank all those who have provided feedback.
