New Forest scheme boosts wildlife

Bargate Homes has been granted planning permission from the New Forest District Council for an initial plan to construct up to 110 new residences on a plot of 15.8 acres (6.4 hectares) in the coastal village of Pennington, Hampshire.

Bargate will now draft a Reserved Matters application for a selection of energy-efficient, EPC-rated homes, ranging from one to four bedrooms. Some 63% of the land area will be committed to habitat conservation and the creation of public open spaces.

Half of these homes will be turned over to Vivid – the parent company of Bargate Homes – to be utilized as affordable housing. Bargate’s design includes numerous distinct plots for development, each fronting green space, trees, and plant life. Overall, the project promises a 10% net increase in biodiversity.

Proposals include three unique clusters of housing, each characterized by their distinctive features and details. Based on Bargate Homes’ local area study, Pennington predominantly features red brick, render, and stained timber cladding buildings, adorned with arched brick headers, red roof tiles, window glazing bars, and chimneys on distinctive residences.
