Chance to see plans for new homes in Fordingbridge

The developers behind the proposed Burgate Acres site are showing off their ideas this afternoon.

It's our opportunity to see what Metis Homes have planned for the site, alongside the A338 between Burgate School and the Fordingbridge Day Nursery.

74 homes are planned to be built there.

We can take a look at the designs so far at an exhibition at the Avonway Community Centre from 4.00 - 7.00pm today (Tuesday July 16th).

There's currently one large house on the site, with around 4.5 acres of land surrounding it.

Metis Homes say they'll be taking the comments made at the exhibition into consideration.

A formal planning application for the site is expected be sent in to New Forest District Council later this year.

COULD BURGATE ACRES GET BIGGER?

Metis Homes is also in discussion with Burgate School to potentially acquire a portion of their unused land to expand the development.

The secondary and Sixth Form say the sale of the land could help to fund enhanced sports facilities there.
