Welcome to Luzborough

Now nearing completion, Luzborough is the first example of The Partnership housebuilders responding to the Estate’s ambitions to do things differently. Morrish Homes and Wyatt Homes worked together on this small site next door to The Luzborough House pub which is owned by The Estate. We hope Luzborough meets expectations locally and will help to inform our next steps.

Living and Working

On this small site it was not possible to incorporate workspace but it is situated very well for liveability being close to the Abbey Park employment area, The Mountbatten School and The Luzborough House.

Properties

Built by The Ashfield Partnership, Luzborough is a small community consisting of just 56 beautiful homes. 

Place-Making

At limited scale place-making presents different challenges. At Luzborough, we hope that we have built something which has its own identity and character but reflects the built tradition of Romsey. Rather than treating each home as a design opportunity, it’s in the choice of materials and in how the buildings work together which helps to create these qualities and achieve a sense of place.

What Makes a Popular Development?

There has been a great deal of research into what makes a popular new build development. It’s generally considered that the best, most welcoming developments will do the following things: 

Design and Community Code for Hoe Lane

The Design & Community Code for Hoe Lane

The Ashfield Partnership has commissioned Tim Gray of Cascapedia Consulting to write a Design and Community Code for Hoe Lane. It will set out Tim Knatchbull’s ambitions for legacy development in terms of place-making, food and farming, social objectives, localism, net biodiversity gain, and building community.
