UPDATED plans for Welborne have been released and the public has two months to have their say.

Fareham Borough Council has confirmed they have received an outline planning application submitted by Buckland Development for the Welborne Garden Village.

The original outline planning application proposed a new community of up to 6,000 homes with supporting shops and community facilities, employment space, schools, parks and open spaces but further details have emerged including a hotel, vet services and a care home.

The revised application includes a redesigned J10 layout for the M27 revisions to the local road network and changes to how and where various community facilities, such as schools and the new district centre, will be provided.

The documents are being uploaded onto the council’s website and this process will be complete by the end of today (January 11) and residents will be able to have their say until Friday, March 1.
