Site Information

Bursledon is situated on the River Hamble, in Southampton, England within the Borough of Eastleigh. Nearby is the famous Hamble-le-Rice, which is a popular yachting location known across the world as the 'Heart of British Yachting' (BA Yacht Club). It is also renowned for being an aircraft training centre during the Second World War. Bursledon has a railway station, a marina and dockyards which are located close to the site.

Bursledon is located 15 miles from Portsmouth and is only 15 minutes drive from BAA Southampton International Airport which serves 43 international destinations. Nearly 2 million passengers pass through the airport each year both for business and pleasure, and it provides employment for 1,300 people in the local area.

Bursledon Railway Station serves the surrounding towns and is on the West Coastway Line. There are rail links to Southampton city centre every 10 minutes and to London Waterloo every 20 minutes.

Southampton is a city rich with heritage and is the home port to some of the world's top ocean liners and cruise ships. It is also one of Britain's busiest cargo docks.

Our Planning Department Comments

Latest Planning Update

As mentioned in the last planning update, a summarized Post Hearings Letter from the Inspector was provided to the LPA in April last year with further information scheduled to be provided later.

In short however, Bursledon was identified as having to provide further sites for housing including sites such as ours and Eastleigh's over reliance on large windfall sites was found to be delinquent.

The subsequent lockdowns in the UK that were only eased earlier this year meant that all work on the consultations on modifications needed to be made to the Local Plan as a result of the above was paused and no confirmed timescales for the resumption have not been provided as yet.

However, the Council have since advised that they intend to commence with consultations in June 2021.
