At the edge of a planning Green Gap at Farnham, a Care Village is proposed that offers significant communal leisure facilities. These include an extension to the local rugby club playing fields, new tennis and bowls clubs with a central management hub. The landscape setting of the 4.48ha site will be improved by extensive mixed-age enclosure planting with new footpath links to the local nature reserve and greenspace as well as drainage and bio-diversity enhancement to the boundary stream and linked wetland margins. The design, including long-term management, will offer a meaningful transition between the existing settlement and open countryside. The pre-application inquiry submitted to WBC is being co-ordinated by HR Architects with Bell Cornwell Planning on behalf of Lamron Developments (Holybourne) Ltd.
