The main east and west routes are car free and act as green links between two main public spaces. A Green Walk connects the scheme to the wider town masterplan.
Planning HistoryFor over 100 years, Whitehill & Bordon has been an Army camp, however the MOD withdrew from the town in 2015. 2009 plans for an EcoTown evolved into the creation of a Healthy Green Town to contain 3350 new homes and 5500 new jobs. The Quebec Barracks site was the first significant parcel of land to come forward from the 2012 masterplan and was identified in the EHDC Joint Core Strategy. The site was bought in 2013 by HCA who led an OJEU design bid process which selected Radian and APLB to develop proposals for a full planning application which received approval in 2015.
