Bewley Homes wins appeal to build 82 new homes in Overton

4 Nov 2021

Prospective buyers looking to buy a quality new home in Overton, near Basingstoke, will be delighted with the news that Bewley Homes has won its appeal.

An inspector has ruled in favour of Bewley Homes’ appeal against refusal for 82 homes, on land adjacent to Two Gate Lane, Overton. The site had been allocated in both neighbourhood and local plans with a recommendation for approval.

The award-winning housebuilder will now deliver its high-quality Garden Village Collection of homes including one-bedroom apartments, two, three and four-bedroom homes, as well as provision for public open space at the site. As part of the scheme, 33 affordable homes for rent and shared ownership will be built.

Andrew Brooks, Managing Director at Bewley Homes, commented: “We are delighted with the Inspector’s decision and can now move forward with this superb scheme in Overton.

“Bewley Homes worked very hard with the planning officers and statutory consultees on this scheme which led to an officer’s recommendation for approval when the application went to committee earlier in the year. It’s rare you get a positive recommendation from all statutory consultees and with this site adopted in both the neighbourhood and local plans it was a major surprise the committee voted against its professional officers’ advice and refused our application.” 

Andrew added: “This is not the first time Bewley Homes has built-in Overton and we are now looking forward to delivering our high-quality Garden Village Collection of homes for both private and affordable tenure. These 82 quality new homes will help some of the way to satisfy the local demand for new housing in Overton and in the Basingstoke and Deane borough.”
