West of Waterlooville

A new community is becoming established at West of Waterlooville, situated in the south-east extremity of the Winchester District adjoining Waterlooville, which is within the administrative area of Havant Borough Council. The majority of the development area is within Winchester District, but a small part is within Havant Borough. The two authorities are working in partnership as the community grows.

The West of Waterlooville Major Development Area is located in the south eastern corner of the District and will provide 3,000 new homes as part of a new community, 2 primary schools, leisure, retail, employment and community facilities including much needed affordable housing. This is being complemented by an extensive restoration and conservation programme for meadows, ancient woodland and the river Wallington.

The site is owned by and being developed by Taylor Wimpey PLC and Grainger PLC, and is administered by both Winchester City Council, and Havant Borough Council. The rate of housebuilding will match market conditions, and is expected to be nearing completion around 2030.
