North Whiteley Progress Report

North Whiteley Progress Report Autumn 2017

Cornerstone move delayed

Due to delays in starting Whiteley North this means that Cornerstone Primary School cannot move until September 2020 to ease disruption moving partway through an academic year.  

Whiteley North starts in June 2018

The Whiteley North housing development is due to start in June 2018 following talks with councillors and developers.

The planning for three schools, new shops and 50 hectares of green space, was submitted by a consortium comprising Taylor Wimpey, Crest Nicholson, Bovis Homes and JGP Lakedale in October 2015. This was then approved by Winchest City Council. Two primary schools, a nursery and a secondary school will be built and open by 2025 along with a small number of shops, allotments, and sports pitches.

Doubts about the lack of funding for road infrastructure halted plans until £20m was secured in August 2017 from central government, along with £15m from the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership. This will improve roads in the Whiteley estate, Rookery Avenue, Parkway and Junction nine of the M27 and will aim to reduce jams around Junction 9 on the M27. HCC Plans for M27 J9.

Additional lanes will be added onto slip roads, the Parkway South roundabout and Whiteley Way approach. There will be an additional traffic lane on both M27 Junction 9 motorway off-slip roads; on the westbound on-slip road, and on the Whiteley Way approach. The existing short left-turn lane on Whiteley Way will be lengthened and additional lanes will be provided on the northern and southern sections of the roundabout. At Parkway South roundabout, a new larger, fully signal-controlled roundabout will be provided, with additional lanes on all approaches, on the Parkway exit road and on the roundabout itself.

Roads Timescales

Late 2018: £250m to convert M27 from J4 to J11 into a smart Motorway. (Adds extra lane instead of the Hard Shoulder)

Summer 2019: £20M to improve J9 with extra lanes, improve R1 with traffic lights, extend Bluebell Way to join Botley Road.

Congestion at peak times in this area has been notoriously bad for years and with a further 3,500 new homes in the planning it will just get worse. It is hope the improvements will finally allow people to access the shopping centre, cinema, restaurants and Business Park without delay. The additional £15 million of funding will be to widen Whiteley Way. All these works sit alongside the £150 million being invested by Highways England in the M27 Smart Motorway Scheme.

Whiteley North is expected to take 10 years to complete.


Lidl in Whiteley

The planning application for a new Lidl supermarket have been given the go-ahead potentially creating 40 jobs. The new 2,476sqm will be be sited off Rookery Avenue, alongside a 122-space car park, with work expected to be completed in early 2019.

The new specification store is larger than the older generation stores. The 0.6-acre store include an in-store bakery, it will be modern and efficient, offering a light spacious and attractive shopping experience for customers. The proposed Lidl site is just under 2.14 acres and is situated in a prominent position fronting Rookery Avenue to the west of Whiteley Way. Lidl have had submitted their planning application to Winchester City Council. The application reference is 17/00164/FUL.

You can find full details on the Winchester City Council website. Please visit the Lidl Download Plans page and Download Reports page where you can find many of the supporting documents that were submitted as part of the planning application. Further information is available here

About Us

Having been born in Hampshire I care about my community and wanted to provide a community website for Whiteley. I wish to see the area prosper in every way including culturally, economically and socially. The green agenda is high at the moment so I wish to promote a strong local economy based on local services, traders and producers. Hopefully this website can enhance the communities quality of life and allow you to precipitate in making Whiteley a better place to live and work in.

The site is written by and for people who live or work in Whiteley. It acts as a community bulletin board and an online news and campaigning service for people who are interested in their neighbourhood. The general comparison I make is with community newsletters - although a website like this this is much quicker, there is no way we could reach this many people with a newsletter.

There is a only one volunteer who writes at the moment drawing on local information from newspapers, councillors, councils, residents, parish council, local businesses, surfing and contributions from people like you. We tend to cover Whiteley and the surrounding area from Fareham, Park Gate, Titchfield, Sarisbury and as far as Winchester. This site is not affiliated to any political group and receives around 3000 - 4000 unique visitors per month, depending upon the range of issues posted and the time of year.

We are always delighted when people comment on the issues raised because without your contributions to the site then the site is stagnant and worthless. Feel free to get in touch any time.
