Newlands Developments is seeking to build a 271,000 sq m distribution centre on land at Oakdown Farm near Basingstoke.

A scoping opinion request about the need for an environmental impact assessment has been submitted by Avison Young on behalf of the developer for the 45-hectare site, which is split either side of the M3 close to J7 at Dummer.

The development will have some additional B1 office/R&D/industrial process space.

An application for up to 1,000 homes at Basingstoke Golf Course on the southern side of the M3 has yet to be determined.
