Abandoned Hampshire hospital set for major infrastructure redevelopment

Sun therapy at Alton hospital.

Homes England has started works on a new multi-million-pound infrastructure project in Alton, Hampshire. 

Homes England, the public body that funds new and affordable housing in England, has begun works on a project in Alton, Hampshire. 

The major infrastructure project is part of Homes England’s wider aim of ensuring more potential building sites are ‘‘unlocked’’ for development. 

Work includes highway improvements and the replacement of a railway bridge to allow the the former Lord Mayor Treloar hospital to be redeveloped.  

Crest Nicholson, which has partnered with Homes England, will build 280 new homes, including 56 affordable homes and a country park. 

The infastructure will benefit another site close by, which is set to deliver 243 more new build homes. 

Homes England general manager Kevin Bourner said: “Homes England has taken the lead in delivering the infrastructure needed to bring forward the delivery of more than 500 homes. This is a great example of partnership working, with Homes England engaging with land owners and other partners to facilitate the development of these key housing sites. 

“With the infrastructure now underway we are looking forward to working with our development partner Crest Nicholson to take our plans for the Lord Mayor Treloar site forward.” 

Reserved Matters applications for both sites have now been submitted to East Hampshire District Council.
