Councillors approve expansion plans for Aldershot

Plans for almost four thousand new homes and facilities to be built in Aldershot have been approved by councillors.

The proposals passed last night by Rushmoor Borough Council will expand the town for the first time in almost a century. The Aldershot Urban Extension would be north of the town centre, on the former Aldershot Garrison site. The area is also known as Wellesley.

The development of up to 3,850 buildings will be phased in over the next twelve to fifteen years. The project is a joint project between the Ministry of Defence and Grainger plc.

“This is great news for Rushmoor. The development represents a huge investment in our borough, bringing more people to Rushmoor, providing much-needed new homes, new jobs and a welcome boost to the local economy. It is a powerful statement of the ambition of our borough – to be the best place to live and do business in the South-East.”

– Councillor Gareth Lyon, Chairman, Rushmoor Borough Council’s Development Control Committee
