Welborne will be a Garden Village in Hampshire comprising up to 6,000 homes, shops, schools, employment and local facilities within an attractive, walkable and leafy environment. With high standards of design and construction, the character of Welborne will be sympathetic to the local landscape and neighbouring villages.
The concept of a Garden Village is based on the tried and tested approaches to building new communities that were designed by creative landowners and developers who sought to plan new settlements that combined the best parts of urban and rural life. These Garden City developments, created over 100 years ago, have remained enduringly popular and have stood the test of time.
Buckland Development Ltd (Buckland), the Master Developer of Welborne, is pursuing an approach to development that is widely different from the standard house builder model. Different because Buckland is focused on a consistent, long-term vision that prioritises patient investment and delivery ahead of short term financial returns. The focus is on place-making rather than just housing numbers.
There is a genuine aspiration to create a popular place to live, work and visit that will stand the test of time and create a lasting legacy.
