The Andover regeneration is structured around a landscape masterplan, with the public and private outdoor spaces key to the development. The physical changes to the public realm benefit those living on and using the estate, addressing pinch points and dead frontages, safety is improved, travel through estate and active engagement with public spaces is encouraged. Providing a pedestrian priority environment the newly defined landscape routes and homezones provide active frontages, natural surveillance and reduced vehicle traffic, whilst providing improved public realm. The public spaces provide accessible amenity for all ages, including areas of play and opportunities for community growing areas.

Planning History

An Andover Estate Development Plan (AEDP) was undertaken in 2014 and was used to create a Design Brief issued to Studio Partington in August 2015. A pre-application meeting was held in February 2016 followed by two Design Review Panel meetings in May and November 2016. Executive group engagement and resident consultations were ongoing throughout this period, and a hybrid planning application consisting of both an outline planning application for the whole estate and a detailed planning application for phase 1 was submitted in May 2017. Permission was granted for both in November 2017.
