The Basingstoke South West Action Group (SWAG) is a group of individuals living in the south western area of Basingstoke and the villages beyond who have come together to try to inject sanity and common sense into development in the west and south west of Basingstoke.
Our mission is "To inform and influence"
SWAG’s future is now in doubt as we need a new Chairperson to lead us.
Although the massive housing developments of north Manydown, Hounsome Fields and Basingstoke Golf Course are already or will soon be underway, don’t for one moment think it will stop there. Landowners in and around where you live want to build a lot, lot more. Here’s just a flavour of what additional development is being proposed.
Hatch Warren, Beggarwood and Kempshott – Over 5,000 more houses adjacent to where you live over and above current plans
North Waltham – Almost 200 more houses around the village plus 4,500 alongside Maidenthorne Lane
Dummer – 80 houses plus an industrial and warehouse area as big as the whole of the industrial estates around Chineham
Oakley – a further 3,300 houses
It all adds up to more than 13,000 extra houses plus major industrial and distribution facilities which is 30% more than what is being proposed for the east of Basingstoke. With no active SWAG group raising objections, this could result in a significant proportion of the above planning proposals being granted.
We need a leader to step forward and join our Committee. If these proposals are of concern to you then please get in touch
If you would like to get involved, please contact us.
