Response to Fareham Borough Council’s Delivery Strategy Report

Mark Thistlethwayte, Principal of Buckland Development Ltd, commented:

“We are very encouraged that Fareham Borough Council is minded to work with Buckland Development Limited as Master Developer to deliver Welborne. We have worked extremely hard over many years to get to this point, culminating in the submission of our Outline Planning Application earlier this year and the more recent acquisition of Dean Farm. Having completed the purchase of Dean Farm earlier this month, BDL is now in direct control of 96% of the land required to deliver the new community.

“Our commitment to bring forward Welborne has remained consistent and we have never departed from our vision of a community which all of Fareham can be proud of. While we will, of course, await a formal decision by the Executive Committee on 9th October, we know that Fareham Borough Council share our commitment to deliver Welborne as soon as possible and we are looking forward to working closely with them in the coming months to achieve our mutual objectives.”
