John Thompson & Partners (JTP) and CALA Homes (South) have submitted a design code and the reserved matters for the first phase of the Barton Farm development to Winchester City Council in the UK.

The first phase of the development will feature 425 private and affordable homes as well as associated infrastructure.

The proposed mix of properties includes one and two bedroom apartments and two to five bedroom houses.

JTP, which has secured outline planning permission for Barton Farm’s masterplan in October 2012, said that condition 3 of the approval required the submission and nod of a design code that forms the basis of the current submission.

The local community and stakeholders had the opportunity to give feedback and shape the design code and design proposals for the first phase.

Planned to be built in two sub phases along the north and south of the proposed Avenue, the development is designed to grow as an organic extension.

After completion, Barton Farm will feature 2,000 new homes along with retail, community uses, social and recreational infrastructure over the next decade.

Other components in the development will include a primary school, a community centre, public open space, sports pitches, children’s play areas, a village green and a town square.

A land transfer from CALA to Hampshire County Council for the new primary school will be completed during the first phase.
