Clarkebond working on resi development set to ‘Lift the Spirits’

Clarkebond is working with residential development company HAB (Happiness, Architecture, Beauty) on a ‘lifestyle’ development of 50 homes in Kings Worthy, Winchester.

The Clarkebond team is providing civil, structural, geotechnical, transportation, drainage, utilities and flood risk assessment services for the masterplan, due to be submitted for planning this spring. HAB’s mission is to ‘make homes that lift the spirits that are a pleasure to live in and a joy to behold’.

Ranging from 1-bed to 5-bed, the homes will be in a  semi-rural site on Lovedon Lane on the edge of the historic village of Kings Worthy, just two miles from the cathedral city of Winchester. Alongside the homes, the proposals include options for new and refurbished sports facilities together with allotments, wildflower meadows and a village green.

As part of the scheme, HAB plans would enable the doubling in size of the adjacent local park and deliver a range of wider community facilities, which could include a new biodiverse country park area and a circular cycle path for children.

The scheme is due to be completed in 2016 subject to planning.
