The proposals for the wholesale redevelopment of land at Wildern Mill comprise both retail and residential elements. It is the intention to submit one planning application to cover all aspects of the scheme. For more detail regarding proposed timeframes, please see our What Next? page. The images above provide an indication of the design, layout and quality of the scheme, including transport proposals and the site masterplan. As the designs evolve through the public consultation process, updated and further images will be added to this website.

There will also be significant job creation associated with construction (approximately 130 jobs over three years) and site management (landscaping and building management in particular).
The proposals represent a significant step forward for Hedge End. By bringing a long term derelict site back into productive use, providing a prestigious, strategic retail development and a residential scheme that complements its surroundings, we hope that residents will embrace the proposals and the opportunities for the locality that they create.
