Consent granted for Farnborough regeneration scheme

24th February 2023 | Jack Oliver

A major mixed-use regeneration project in Farnborough has been given the go-ahead by local councillors.

The Rushmoor Development Partnership, a joint venture between Rushmoor Borough Council and Hill Investment Partnerships, looks to regenerate town centre sites in Hampshire’s Farnborough and Aldershot.

The proposed plans for Farnborough’s ‘Civic Quarter’ would see the development of new retail, food and beverage, and commercial space, the construction of a leisure centre and civic hub, and the creation of around 1,000 new homes.

The Rushmoor development partnership was started in 2018 and undertook a series of public consultations in 2019 and 2021.

Andy Hill, group chief executive of the Hill Group, said: “Our plans for Farnborough’s town centre will provide much needed, sustainable new homes and fantastic amenities that will be enjoyed by the residents of Farnborough now and in the future. The RDP is committed to delivering a legacy of high-quality, sustainable development that will benefit the community for generations to come.”

In 2020, the partnership was granted planning approval to transform parts of Aldershot’s town centre, creating 2,200 sq ft of retail, commercial, and public space, as well as new homes and student accommodation.
