Sentinel Housing Association
We undertook the promotion, submission and monitoring of the first Extra Care development in Hampshire comprising 74 flats in a purpose-designed, three storey building in a sensitive location, marking the entrance to Fleet town centre, adjacent to important public open spaces and a Conservation Area.
We assisted the authority in assessing the merits of the proposal, the need for and supply of older persons and Extra Care facilities in the District and the need for specialist affordable housing for an ageing population.
Pre-application negotiations were conducted with Natural England to mitigate impacts of additional residential development on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area.
The application followed an extensive consultation process carried out by us with the authority, community and other Stakeholders. As a result the scheme received support from the community and the Council.
