Welcome to Hoe Lane

Hoe Lane is proposed in the Revised Local Plan to become a community of about 300 new homes together with some workspace. It is likely to envisage a revival of Mountbatten Park, adventure space within Combined Operations Wood, and a new walled allotment garden and play space close to Hoe Farm.

We are pleased to announce that Test Valley Borough Council’s Southern Area Planning Committee unanimously confirmed approval for the outline application of the Hoe Lane site on Tuesday the 14th of July. Work is now underway to draft a Reserved Matters Application for community consultation and then submission in the December 2020, read more here.

Good connections across The Estate to schools, to work, and to local facilities in North Baddesley should make possible reduced dependence on the motor car.

Properties

Built by The Ashfield Partnership, Hoe Lane is a medium sized community of 300 beautiful new homes, workplaces and public facilities. View the properties that are available below.

Place-Making

At Hoe Lane, the principles of place-making look beyond the built environment to the hinterland of The Estate in order to address its wider vision in terms of Food and Farming, Net Biodiversity Gain, and Social Outcomes.
