Welcome to Mountbatten Park

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