Outline Planning Consent Granted For Ampfield Care Village

Sector: Retirement Living & Care Homes

Group News

Location: Ampfield, Hampshire

We are delighted to report that outline planning consent has been granted for Ampfield Care Village with both access and scale of development approved.

Pegasus Group has been working on behalf of landowner, Perbury Developments Ltd on the scheme. The project will involve the demolition and removal of all existing buildings and plant/vehicles from the site, and the provision of ‘extra care living’ apartments, with a core community building, set in a parkland setting with the retention and strengthening of landscaped boundaries to Flexford Nature Reserve, Trodds Copse and the Monks Brook.

Residents of the Care Village will be restricted to the elderly (65 years and over) and in need of some assistance with ‘day to day’ living, but will also deliver a membership facility for access to a Day Club for elderly persons living within the local community.

The scheme will deliver local economic and community benefits including:

  • a net increase in over 40 jobs generated from the site;
  • a contribution towards new street lighting in Baddesley Road, to improve pedestrian safety along a stretch of unlit pavement.

Jim Tarzey, Chairman of Pegasus Group & Executive Planning Director said:

“We are delighted that outline planning consent has been granted, this is a great opportunity to secure the long term future of an underused brownfield site”.

A team from Pegasus Group’s London, Bristol, Manchester and Cirencester offices have worked with Perbury Developments on the project including Chairman, Jim Tarzey, Directors, Hilary Degnan and Teresa Hazelwood, Associate, Richard Cook and Principal Planner, Elizabeth Fowler.
