Planning consent for the scheme was secured in March 2021 after delays due to the challenge of ensuring the scheme achieved nitrate neutrality. During 2019 a temporary moratorium was placed on all planning applications across the county, under the advice of Natural England, due to the excess nitrates measured as leaking into the Solent. By working with Natural England and planning consultants Asbri Planning, Lovell Later Living and Hampshire County Council successfully developed a tap led innovative water saving solution which enabled the scheme to achieve full planning consent and once in operation will save 3000 litres of water per day from this development considerably limiting nitrate waste. Following this planning consent, movement was swift to the ground breaking, which took place at the end of July 2021, with works on site commencing in August 2021, led by Morgan Sindall Construction, our sister company, serving as contractor.

“This, in addition to the Nightingale Lodge scheme in Romsey, which we are also developing in partnership with Hampshire County Council and Places for People Living Plus, marks significant progress in the response required to meet the needs for Extra Care across the county.
“It is testament to the commitment of all parties to protect the environment that the Extra Care scheme has finally commenced on site, having developed an innovative and sustainable, ecologically responsible solution which will allow the development to become an intrinsic part of the Gosport community. Continuing our commitment to support our partners deliver vital specialist housing with access to care and support, right in the heart of communities across Hampshire while being respectful of the need for environmental sustainability is at the forefront of Lovell Later Living business strategy and core values of the Morgan Sindall Group .”
Paula Broadbent, Managing Director, Lovell Later Living
The Gosport development will complete in the Spring 2023, and Lovell Later Living will continue to work closely with Hampshire County Council to accelerate developments across the county including another Extra Care scheme at New Milton.
