Welcome to the Public Consultation Web Page for Antler Homes' proposals for development at land accessed off Glebe Close, Dummer
As you may be aware Antler Homes submitted a previous planning application for 17 dwellings to be located on the Land accessed off Glebe Close, which was subsequently refused at appeal on heritage grounds. Our proposals now eliminate any heritage concerns by removing development from the front parcel of land. Antler Homes welcomes the opportunity to engage with the local residents of the Dummer community in a new proposal that will be a once in a generation opportunity to shape the village, whilst preserving and enhancing its natural beauty.
We would like to understand your opinion on our scheme options and request that you comment on our plans using the feedback form included on this website. This will help us to shape and form this development for the benefit of the new and existing community
Our key proposals
The 30 unit scheme will include the following benefits:
3 - 3.5 hectares of land safeguarded as public open space for the residents of Dummer, to prevent future expansion of the village and coalescence with Basingstoke. No additional phases of development will be proposed on the site
Maintain in perpetuity a rural vista entering the village by creating a green buffer between the development and Down Street
A policy compliant mixture of 30 market and affordable homes (30% will be affordable, including shred ownership)
Additional residents will support the village, including the Queen Inn, Parish Church & Parish Council activities
Road access and parking for the existing recreation ground and tennis courts
New community building to be gifted to the Parish Council. This could include recreation ground changing facilities
The new hall would also facilitate alternative uses for the existing village hall, for example a community shop or rentable commercial space creating revenue for the Parish Council
Improved public footpath connectivity, particularly along Down Street and a village gateway feature
We encourage the community to consider what they would like us to provide on the public open space and offer suggestions that can be incorporated into the proposed plans. This could include a community farm, community orchard, extra tree planting, allotments, wild meadows, parkland and additional sports/recreational space. There is space for a number of these benefits to be included.
Antler Homes received planning and has built out a scheme in Sherborne St John, also within Basingstoke and Dean BC, which comprises of 19 dwellings within a rural setting and a village shop. Click here to read more about this development.
We welcome any initial comments that you may have at this time. We will be holding an ongoing public consultation through our dedicated website until the 18th June 2021.
