Current Projects : Instructions and project planning progression


Bramley, Hampshire

Welcome to Manor Oak Homes’ public consultation website for our proposed new development at land south of Silchester Road, Bramley, Hampshire. 

We are pleased to annouce that the proposed new development of 12 dwellings has now recieved planning consent. Further information will be made available in due course.

Our Vision:

Manor Oak Homes are pleased to announce we are currently promoting a residential-led scheme on land south of Silchester Road, Bramley. The Scheme we are promoting comprises residential development, including market and affordable homes. Manor Oak Homes have now submitted a full planning application for 13 no. bungalows, (8 no. market and 5 no. affordable) and associated access, parking, landscaping and amenity space.

We have been engaging with Bramley Parish Council and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council to inform our proposals. We will continue to engage with all stakeholders.

Public Consultation Event:

Manor Oak Homes recently held a Public Consultation Event to inform residents about our proposals and to gain feedback on our proposed scheme. Members of the Manor Oak Homes development team were on hand to listen to ideas and concerns and to answer questions.

The Public Consultation Event took place on Wednesday the 30th October 2019 between 4:00pm and 7:00pm in the Bramley Village Hall, The Street, Bramley, RG26 5BP.

For those unable to attend the Public Consultation Event, the exhibition boards are posted below on this page. Formal Public Consultation has now closed and all comments have been reviewed by the project team and collated into a Statement of Community Involvement, which forms part of our full planning application submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.

Our Proposals:

The site is considered highly sustainable, being in close proximity to the centre of Bramley which has a wide range of public services, amenities and public transport provision. Our Proposals have been informed by pre-application discussions with Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council and Bramley Parish Council, as well as detailed site investigations. These investigations include the following:

  • Landscape Assessment
  • Phase 1 Ground Investigation
  • Archaeological Assessment
  • Heritage Impact Assessment
  • Vernacular Design Appraisal
  • Preliminary Ecology Appraisal
  • Arboriculture Assessment
  • Transport and Access Investigations
  • Flood Risk and Drainage Assessment
  • Topographical Survey

The conclusions of these key investigations are used to inform a constraints and opportunities plan, which is used by the architect in conjunction with information provided by the Borough Council to draw up a constraints-led residential scheme. This methodology ensures that any environmental impacts are mitigated, and that the scheme responds positively to its environment. It is critical that the scheme makes the best use of the land to provide housing that is suitable for the location and meets local needs.

Whilst we undertake all the recommended investigations using qualified specialists at an early stage of the design process, we do not profess to know everything about the site and its surroundings, which is why Public Consultation and stakeholder engagement is critical to the design process. We are therefore keen to hear your views, concerns and ideas on matters such as Public Open Space, Housing Mix, Connectivity and Affordable Home Provision.

Next Steps

Following a review of the feedback from the Public Consultation Event and Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council, we have now submitted a planning application. There will be a further opportunity to comment on our proposals on the District Councils website, prior to the Council determining whether the application should be approved.

A Planning Application has now been submitted
