Land donated for new homes

A new development of 13 affordable homes at Phillimore Gardens in Shedfield has been officially opened.


The land for the homes was provided by a landowner who passed away, but whose wish was to help the younger generation in the village get on the property ladder.


The development was made possible through Winchester City Council’s role in the Hampshire Alliance for Rural Affordable Housing.


The opening was carried out by Winchester City Council Leader, Cllr Caroline Horrill, Mayor of Winchester, Cllr Frank Pearson, and Chair of HARAH and Winchester’s Portfolio Holder for the Built Environment, Cllr Caroline Brook.


Cllr Caroline Horrill said: “There is a real issue in rural areas that local people are unable to afford to live in the places where they were bought up, work, or have strong family connections.


“However, we are working hard to solve this and one way is by working closely with HARAH and ensuring new developments like this are made possible.”
