Buckland Development Ltd was originally established in 2006 to represent Southwick Estate – the local custodian of land allocated by the Local Council for Welborne. With a deep Hampshire heritage and close connection with the area, Buckland is the Master Developer responsible for the delivery of Welborne Garden Village near Fareham, Hampshire.
Buckland has been working with Fareham Borough Council, Hampshire County Council and other public sector and community group stakeholders to deliver the Welborne vision.
Masterplanning and designing an entirely new community within a 1,000-acre area has taken careful consideration and years to create. This has been the case for both the Council, in developing its Welborne Plan and policy framework, and for Buckland in its response and vision for delivering Welborne as both landowner and Master Developer.
The outline planning application for Welborne Garden Village was submitted by Buckland to Fareham Borough Council in March 2017 – the largest application ever received by the Council. It was approved by the Council’s Planning Committee on October 16th 2019. The S106 Agreement was signed in September 2022.
Buckland has been working with Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council ever since to shape and deliver the Welborne vision, and it is this collaborative and sustainable partnership which will allow us to develop a community that will stand the test of time.
Together with Buckland Capital Partners Ltd and Portchester Equity Ltd, we have the ability and resources to understand and deal with the technical, commercial and financial challenges associated with such a regionally significant project.
