PWA was engaged by BST Group, one of the two major land owners for Welborne – The Strategic Development of a New Community north of Fareham. At the master planning stage PWA prepared concepts for a mixed use district centre as the focus of the new community. The scheme envisaged through the interrelation and interdependency of retail, residential, employment and community uses, an active town centre from early in the morning until late at night. The BST proposals have and continue to be the subject of considerable public engagement both locally and at a regional level, continuing to address future issues of sustainability transport and evolving live work patterns. The District Centre will support the client’s aspiration for 6,500 new homes.
