Barker-Mill Estates would like to thank everyone who attended July’s public consultation event when we displayed our proposals for Adanac Park.Our public exhibition, held across two days, was well attended and we were particularly pleased with the level of feedback from local residents, businesses and councillors.

All the comments we received have been carefully considered and, where possible, have been incorporated into the scheme that has now been lodged with Test Valley Borough Council and Southampton City Council.

The proposals seek to create a high quality business and living location, which focuses on enormous amounts of inward investment and job creation, along with landscaping and associated infrastructure. The ten application sites, which are located to the north and south of the Ordnance Survey head office, form a strategic 29ha employment site next to the M271 motorway and west of the established Nursling Estate.

The submitted proposals, which are now with the Councils for consideration, comprise a suite of planning applications including B1, B2 and B8 business types, which will allow incoming and local expanding companies to set up at Adanac Park.

Barker-Mill Estates comprises of land owned and managed by the Barker-Mill family and its Trustees, covering particular areas of Hampshire. They are committed to working alongside local communities in areas where the Barker-Mill family has owned land for generations, leaving a lasting legacy.

Mainly consisting of farmland, grazing land, paddocks and commercial units, the estates also feature a wide range of residential properties, a majority of which are located in the Nursling area and the villages of Ashurst and Colbury.

The Barker-Mill family also has a charitable Foundation which, since it was established in 1995, has donated around £3 million to local charities, schools, organisations and individuals needing support, primarily in south-west Hampshire.

The proposals now submitted for the site would:

• Provide an attractive and well thought-out scheme, respectful of its location

• Create opportunities for a range of different types and scales of employment development that meet the needs of the business community

• Make a contribution to providing a balanced mix of new homes within Test Valley, including affordable homes

• Provide around 3,600 potential job opportunities for local residents.

• Provide approximately £463,000 financial contributions through the Government’s New Homes Bonus Scheme

• Provide up to £3.5m of business rates per annum, of which up to 50% can be retained by TVBC to support local communities.

Dear resident,

About Barker-Mill Estates In summary

Proposals for Adanac Park To view the suite of planning applications, please visit the planning page at www.testvalley.gov.uk and search ‘Adanac Park’.

Site backgroundThe employment led nature of development, to be situated on land adjacent to the M271, known as Adanac Park, has been established through planning permissions secured in 2008 and 2009. However this came with conditions that the site be used mainly for office use of at least 10,000 square metres.

Despite continued marketing efforts by the owners of the land, Barker-Mill Estates, the criteria established in the planning consents has led this prime employment site to lay undeveloped – delivering nothing to the community. This position has acted as a barrier to job generation and has stopped the site making a meaningful contribution toward supporting economic growth.

The current proposals for the site are therefore flexible, enabling a development that responds to the needs of the market by accommodating businesses and generating new jobs and other economically beneficial uses.

Responding to local commentsBarker-Mill Estates has taken on board comments made by local residents regarding the proposals, and the feedback provided through the various forms of consultation and stakeholder discussion influenced the scheme in a number of important ways, including:

• Reducing the amount of B8 floorspace proposed north of Ordnance Survey;

• A new office development to the north of Ordnance Survey;

• A care home use within the residential development proposals at Nursling Street;

• Having regard to comments when determining the extent of residential development proposed at Bargain Farmhouse and Nursling Street;

• Shaping the form and scale of employment proposals to meet the needs of the market; and

• Ensuring that the proposals for Adanac Park were for an amenity restaurant, rather than a traditional pub.

An Economic Legacy The proposals seek to unlock the economic potential of the site, delivering a significant number of jobs of different types. The development will support inward investment and create opportunities for businesses to expand and deliver economic benefits. Please see enclosed leaflet for further details on the wider economic benefits that will be delivered.

Highways and accessibility Barker-Mill Estates understands that matters such as highways and parking are crucial issues for existing local residents in connection with most planned new developments. In order to ascertain the impact of the scheme with regard to vehicle movements, a Traffic Impact Assessment has been completed and has been submitted with the application. This demonstrates that the scheme will not have an adverse impact on the local road network and will generate lower traffic levels at peak times than that associated with the existing permission.

The site benefits from access to the strategic highway network, being close to both the M271 and the M27. Access to the development is taken from Brownhill Way through an existing roundabout junction linking to Adanac Drive. To the north, Nursling Street is a local road that serves a limited number of homes and businesses.

As well as providing the primary vehicular access, Adanac Drive constitutes the main pedestrian and cycle connection on the site. It connects via a cycle/footway link running from Nursling Street in the north along the western edge of the site.

Adanac Drive retains sufficient capacity to serve the range of new uses. This route also provides direct public transport penetration to the site, with existing and new bus stops to serve the businesses on site.

Design and appearanceThe approach taken by Barker-Mill Estates and its design team has been to work with the existing features of the site and surrounding area:

• The green boundary to Adanac Park will be retained and improved to create a buffer from the M271

• Home Covert will be retained and an appropriate buffer provided between the development and the woodland area

• Within the site, green corridors will provide ecological and amenity links across the Park, as well as serving to divide the site into clear development parcels that are defined by landscape

The masterplan shown is ‘illustrative’ only, but it does demonstrate a considered approach to the form of layout that would be appropriate for this site.

The precise design, scale and siting of each building and its individual appearance is left as illustrative at this stage, allowing for flexibility and further evolution as the development is brought forward over time.

Respecting the site’s existing landscape and ecology

The site benefits from the attractive wooded backdrop of Home Covert along its eastern edge. There is also a mature boundary of trees and hedgerows to the west and south, providing a buffer from the M271. To the north, a series of smaller hedgerows, dotted with isolated mature trees, provide a framework for new development that can be supplemented by further planting.

This green perimeter acts as an attractive setting for new development and provides a buffer between the commercial nature of the site and existing residential development.

A number of protected trees are present on the site; these will be retained and will be used as features of the design.
