STaNHD, Stand up for the North Hampshire Downs is a new action group set up by local people to protect the rural environment of the North Hampshire Downs, South of Basingstoke.
Portsmouth Estates have submitted a concept document for "Upper Swallick Garden Village" which would ultimately be a new town consisting of at least 2500 houses. The development would be the size of central Basingstoke.
The specific area under threat from this development stretches south and west of Basingstoke from Cliddesden and the M3 to the A339 reaching as far as Winslade and Ellisfield. This would concrete over a huge area of pristine chalk downland.
The aim is to STOP this enormous proposal and preserve this beautiful landscape for future generations
Once this farmland is gone, it is gone.
We need to act.
