  • 1. Acting as Development Manager for the Defence InfrastructureOrganisation, Grainger’s role is to manage the delivery of theAldershot Urban Extension, known as Wellesley.“The natural canvas that this site presents is unique. There’s a rich blendof heritage, topography and established landscaping that gives us a headstart in transforming the former Garrison into a place uuhich has identity,character and will stand the test of time. We uuant to create a scheme uuhichlooks as good in 100 years’ time as it does the day it’s completed. The schemeuuill foster a sense of community uuhich uuas prevalent in the garden suburbsof the last century.”John BeresfordGrainger
  • 2. 1WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGERThe Grainger story started over 100 years ago. Ever sincethen, Grainger has been owning, developing and managingresidential property.Today, as the UK’s largest specialist residential property owner on theLondon Stock Exchange, we own and manage over £3bn of residentialassets across the UK. Grainger offers an incomparable mix of realestate professionals, specialising in owning, developing, managing andtrading residential land and property.Grainger is not a house builder, and as the development manager, ourrole is to service land for sale to the house builders. Of key importanceis how Grainger interacts with the house builders to deliver thescheme. Grainger’s role is to master plan the whole scheme so that itaccords with our vision. We will then obtain a detailed consent whichwill be sold to house builders. When the house builders bid for the landthey will have to adopt the specified design and the quality standards.The normal approach on similar sized schemes would be to sell offphases to different house builders and let them build standardisedhouse types. This approach can often lead to large developmentslooking the same. The approach on Wellesley is very different and willcreate a scheme with its own identity as Grainger will ensure that thelong term interests are being considered when each phase is built.It is in the interest of Grainger and the MoD to ensure that this is anattractive place to live because this will be reflected in sales valuesand land receipts in years to come.As development partner, Grainger’s role is to obtain planning approvalfor the masterplan and facilitate the delivery of the development overthe next approx. 15 years. In taking this forward Grainger has workedclosely with local stakeholders and the community on the proposalsfor Wellesley, the Aldershot Urban Extension. This has resulted in oursubmission of a hybrid planning application to Rushmoor BoroughCouncil. This comprises of an outline planning application for thewhole development plus a detailed planning application for Phase 1comprising of 228 new homes. A summary of the main componentsof the application is set out in the following pages.
  • 3. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER2THE VISIONWellesley will be a new area of Aldershot, integrated butdistinctive, that will enhance and add to the vitality ofthe town. It will be an attractive and desirable place forusers and residents and will provide new facilities for thewider community.Wellesley will take its character from its history, its fine stock ofhistoric buildings and its mature landscape. Drawing on these assetsit will develop its own architectural and landscape legacy as it growsover time.Wellesley will build on the established pattern of streets, cyclewaysand footpaths to provide safe and permeable links to the townand to the wider countryside. It will also enhance the existingmature landscape to provide a network of green spaces to providerecreation, increase biological diversity and put all residents incontact with nature.The way the new development is used and constructed, its ease ofaccess, the provision of public transport and its servicing will cometogether to promote an efficient use of energy in accordance with thelatest and most advanced practice.Wellesley will grow organically and in a logical sequence. Communityfacilities will be provided at each stage. Each area will have its owncharacter and interest created from its location, use and individual designbut will be managed to contribute creatively to a coherent overall identity.The participation of the existing community and new residents will beencouraged to establish a sense of community and ownership.Key features of the development include:- The protection and early delivery of the Cambridge Military Hospitalas a landmark and a principal defining feature of the area.- A new active neighbourhood centre at the crossroads ofQueen’s Avenue and Alison’s Road incorporating the 4th DivisionHeadquarters Building. Proposals include new retail, leisure andbusiness space to support and service the community and actas a focal point. This provision is an important component of thesustainability strategy, intended to reduce the need to travelwithin the Wellesley area. The scale of the facilities is such that theneighbourhood centre will complement rather than compete withthe Aldershot town centre and North Camp village centre.- The refurbishment of the Smith Dorrien House and the MaidaGymnasium as a gateway to the area on the principal access fromthe town centre.- The creation of a heritage trail providing access to historicallysignificant monuments and memorials.- The delivery of a new large open space at the centre of thedevelopment, in the form of a central park will respond to theexisting road pattern and the historic Stanhope Lines.- The restoration and development of the canal frontage to enhanceits nature conservation value while providing a recreational asset.- The delivery of significant new areas devoted to SANGS (SuitableAlternative Natural Green Space), allotments and sports fields forexisting and new communities.WELLESLEY VISION

  • 7. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER6Green Infrastructurerecreation, Landscape and EcologyThe natural topography and surroundings of the site offera fantastic opportunity to deliver a useable country parkapproach to open space.The green infrastructure is a combination of the on-site public openspace strategy and the off-site SANGs. The scheme ensures thesetwo strategies are intrinsically linked to deliver a comprehensiveapproach to creating an attractive environment where people wantto live and play.The scheme will deliver an extensive amount of green open space onthe door step for new residents. Furthermore this unique offering willbe equally available to the existing residents of Aldershot andthe surrounding area.The green infrastructure comprises:- 110 ha of a woodland park (SANGs)- 10 ha of on-site woodlands- Improved access to the canal side walks- Access to previously restricted lakes at Camp Farm- 2.4 ha of new allotments (approx 800 patches)- 2 large destination play areas- Sports pitches and a brand new pavilion- A new central park following the historic Stanhope LinesThe approach to biodiversity has been developed alongside the greeninfrastructure strategy and aims to protect and enhance all of theexisting on-site ecological interest. The long-term habitat continuityfor protected animal species affected by Wellesley is paramount.

  • 9. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER8Stanhope LinesTHE VISIONThe Stanhope Lines are the original parade ground aroundwhich the barracks grew. They were a large open arearunning from east to west. They have subsequently beeneroded with new buildings and other subdivisions. The newdevelopment at Wellesley will restore the Stanhope Lines tobecome one of the defining features that hold together thecharacter of new area, creating a central park which providesa major resource for residents and acts as a direct referenceto the historic origins of the barracks.At the east end, the park is open to the landscape of Rushmoor Bottombeyond but is terminated with a major new feature. At the west end it isterminated where the land rises to a group of existing trees. In the middleit becomes Parade Park and opens out to the neighbourhood centre.While the building and landscape along the Lines will have a cohesivecharacter the detail will vary to create individual areas. There will beformal and informal play areas along the Lines, together with footpathsand other features to make it a valuable asset to the whole development.As well as being an attractive part of the open space strategy the Lineswill also;1.

WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER10The site is well connected and as such the proposeddevelopment will continue to utilise the existing highwaynetwork and, where necessary, provide additionalconnections via new junctions. As there is no single pointof access the traffic generated from this development willuse a combination of the existing and new points of entryas set out below. This will minimise the risk of creatingbottlenecks at peak times.- From the west, access will be from the existing Alison’s Road/A325 Farnborough Road grade separated junction and via anew connection (left in-left out) at A325 Farnborough Road/Pennefathers Road.- Access to the north and south of the site will still be achievedvia Queen’s Avenue, Hospital Hill and Ordnance Road corridorswhich provide local connections to Aldershot, North Campand Farnborough.- Government Road will provide a connection to the east of the siteand will improve links onto the A331 with the provision of a newnorthbound on-slipTransportPedestrian/Cycle network

  • 13. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER12CAMBRIDGE MILITARY HOSPITALThe Cambridge Military Hospital (CMH) is one Aldershot’sdefining landmarks and sits on the highest ground in thearea. The tower was from its inception built to act as a visualfeature and can be seen for miles around. The building is afine example of late Victorian military architecture and itsuse as both a military and civilian hospital has made it a keypart of the heritage of the town of Aldershot. The originalbuilding has been much spoilt by later functional additionsand, since its closure in 1996, has deteriorated. The newdevelopment of Wellesley will maintain and enhance thelandmark and architectural significance of the building andsecure its future and vitality by providing a viable new use.The distinctive form of the building, with a small central administrativeblock and radiating wards, when freed of its later accretions, offersa number of options for re-use. The spacing of the radiating wards issufficient to allow for residential uses without sacrificing privacy andallows for private areas and landscape. The Victorian construction isrobust and includes fine architectural features. In preparing options for aviable re-use, the existing building fabric would be restored and retainedas much as feasible, the main entrance and tower would become thefocus of a new landscaped area and the wider setting would be designedto complement the historic building.Four options for converting the main hospital building into different useshave been assessed:Option 1.Mixed use. The wards are converted to residential use. The administrativeblock has offices in the basement and ground floor and there is a centralcafé overlooking the wooded slopes to the south. There are apartmentson the first and second floor.Option 2.Mixed use. The wards are residential as in Option 1. The administrativeblock has community uses on the basement and ground floor. There is acentral café on the ground floor and apartments on the first and secondfloor as in Option 1.Option 3.Mixed use. The wards are residential as in Option 1. The administrativeblock has a mixture of offices and community uses in the basement andground floor. There is a central café on the ground floor and apartmentson the first and second floor as in Option 1.Option 4.Mixed use. The wards are residential as in Option 1. The administrativeblock has a mixture of offices and community uses on all floors and thereare additional offices in the westernmost ward. There is a central café asin Option 1.Final proposals will be subject to further consultation and listedbuilding consent.Option 1Option 2Option 3Option 4

  • 17. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER16Neighbourhood CentreAt the heart of Wellesley a local neighbourhood centre isproposed, containing a number of non-residential functions,such as retail, leisure and business space, to support andservice the community and act as a focal point.This provision is an important component of the sustainability strategy,intended to reduce the need to travel within the Wellesley area andto provide shopping, leisure and other services for residents andbusinesses. The scale of the facilities is such that the neighbourhoodcentre complements, rather than competes with, the shopping and otherfacilities within Aldershot town centre and North Camp village centre.The group of historic buildings centred on the former 4th DivisionHeadquarters has been identified for the location of the neighbourhoodcentre. Just as the buildings were originally sited there to be central tothe grid of barrack blocks, and strategically adjacent to both Queen’sAvenue and the Parade Park, the location is correspondingly suitablefor the future new community’s needs, provided that certain designconstraints and sensitivities can be appropriately handled, particularlywith respect to:• Preserving and enhancing the character of the conservation area• The frontages presented to Queen’s Avenue, Alison’s Road and the newParade Park and Stanhope Lines• The setting, scale and massing of the listed buildings• The uses appropriate for the internal arrangement of theexisting buildings• Facade treatment of both existing and proposed buildings• The incorporation of historic and ceremonial features associatedwith the existing buildingsThe studies carried out by Grainger show how, through careful urbandesign, historical and conservation objectives can be aligned with civicand townscape objectives to breathe new life into these distinguishedbuildings in their fine setting.The 8th Division Memorial in front of the4th Division Headquarters BuildingThe complex viewed from Queen’s Avenue4th Division Headquarters frontage with8th Division Memorial, Cenotaph andSt Michael and St George RC GarrisonChurch beyondThe Old Post Office fronting ontoQueen’s Avenue

As part of this planned, historic redevelopmentof the site, tree lined avenues along the orthogonal road grid are a particularlyimportant element of the landscape character. Over time, these avenues havebecome fragmented and a detailed planting strategy has been developed tostrengthen and re-integrate these avenues into the new development.The palette of proposed trees is based on existing species within the site andhas been developed to reflect the different characters of the developmentphases. This will create a hierarchy along the routes which will promote naturalwayfinding through the development. Formal, large scale trees such as Oak andLime are used along the main roads, with more upright, fastigate species on thesmaller roads and ornamental trees with strong form and colour in the publicopen spaces.TRANSITIONAL TREES - TERTIARY ROADSFEATURE TREES - OPEN SPACESRESIDENTIAL TREES - THE LANESQuercus robur - Common oak(8m x 12m High)Tilia cordata ‘Greenspire’ - Smallleaved lime (5m x 10m High)Native NativeQueensAvenueHopeGrant’sRoadHospitalRoadScarlett’sRoadFireStationRoadPyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’ -Callery pear (3m x 8m High)Corylus colurna - Turkish hazel(3m x 8m High)Aesculus indica - India horsechestnut (4m x 8m High)TheLanesMalus trilobataCrab Apple (2.5m x 16m H)Prunus ‘Spire’ (hillieri’Spire’)Cherry Spire (3m x 6m )OpenSpacesMagnolia kobus - Kobus magnolia(4m x 10m High)Davidia involucrata -Hankerchief tree(6m x 10m High)Quercus coccinea ‘Splendens’-Scarlet oak (8m x 12m High)Prunus serrula -Tibetan cherry (8m x 8m High)Liquidambar styraciflua -Sweet gum (5m x 10m High)‘
  • 28. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER28DELIVERY IMPLEMENTATIONThe masterplan demonstrates a variety of opportunities forthe delivery of Wellesley. It provides a platform to encouragenew homes, community facilities, leisure activities and jobs.The masterplan illustrates a number of key principles to facilitate thedelivery of a quality development. It’s important that the master planis not set in stone because it will need to evolve over the life of thedevelopment as life changes. Any future improvements to the masterplan will be developed with Rushmoor Borough Council.The development of the Wellesley community has the opportunityto provide an important catalyst for the wider economic benefit ofAldershot. In addition, the timing of the delivery of the local amenitiesis critical to successful placemaking. Too late in the development andthe new residents will be left wanting. Too early and the scheme willbe a vacant underused facility which will deteriorate. It is a symbioticrelationship where the uses rely on each other to create a successfulplace to live. For these reasons Grainger’s approach to the illustrativedelivery plan allows flexibility in the delivery of Wellesley to respondto the needs of the emerging and existing community while capturingmarket opportunities.Delivering the VisionThe proposed timescales for the delivery of each development zone areset out in the illustrative delivery plan. Grainger will manage the deliveryof each development zone including the associated open spaces andinfrastructure as well as the detailed proposals for each monumentand listed building as shown in the adjacent table. This will ensure thatwherever the homes are delivered there will also be associated facilitiessuch as open space.As each development zone may comprise more than one reserved matterarea the following control documents have been submitted as part of theplanning application:- Design codes: a set of quality controls which ensure that the newdevelopments have a cohesive character and a defined minimumstandard of quality.- Affordable housing strategy: sets out the site wide approach andprovision of affordable housing for the WellesleyThe aim of these documents is to ensure that each developmentzone delivers a proportionate quantum of affordable housing, socialand physical infrastructure, in a manner and of a quality which issustainable for the emerging community. As part of the applicationa site wide affordable housing strategy and design code have beensubmitted as well as more detailed documents for Phase 1. In takingthe development forward, a detailed code and affordable housingstrategy will be submitted for approval for each development zoneprior to commencement of development. These documents will beincorporated into the plot sale agreements, meaning that developers arecontractually bound to adhere to the parameters set down for the siteand development zones.There are 6 grade II listed buildings on site which will be retained althougha number of later additions to the buildings have been identified whichcould be demolished as they detract from and/or have a negativeimpact on the original buildings and setting. Any work to these buildingsand those within the curtilage will be subject to listed building andconservation area consent where relevant. Therefore there will be anopportunity for the stakeholders and the local community to input intothe proposals.There are areas within the development which Grainger deems to beof significant importance in the creation of a high quality place e.g. theCambridge Military Hospital, Stanhope Lines, Parade Park and theneighbourhood centre. Although not high value development sites, theseareas will set the standard for Wellesley. Consequently, Grainger maystill decide to directly develop these areas. The decision as to whetherto develop directly will solely be based upon the best decision for theproject in terms of value creation and long term quality.As a key character area of Wellesley, the Cambridge Military Hospital hasbeen identified for delivery within the first few years of the development.This allows sufficient time to finesse proposals and obtain the relevantlisted building consents without compromising the final usage andmarketability of the development zone.Grainger will manage or directly deliver the on and off-site strategicinfrastructure (unless otherwise agreed with HCC) for the project,enabling the parcelling up of development plots for sale/self-development.
  • 29. WELLESLEY, ALDERSHOT | GRAINGER 29Property ManagementSince the company’s inception in 1912, Grainger has investedin property and land with a long term view. The company hassubstantial in-house expertise in property and land management andcorrespondingly, the Grainger development ethos is of sustained andcontinual commitment to development projects. We recognise the valuethis can bring to all stakeholders, including residents, adjoining ownersand the wider community.Wellesley will be approached with the same commitment. We recognisethat good management of land and public areas, such as public openspace, roads and woodland, involves the right combination of keypartners, with each partner managing the areas which relate to their ownexpertise. In this way all areas can be carefully managed from a short,medium and long term perspective to the benefit of the development.At Wellesley, Grainger has also focused attention on ensuring that thesite is secure and the vacant buildings are protected from the elements.Since Grainger’s appointment as Development Manager in March 2011,a detailed building assessment has been carried out across the wholedevelopment area to identify which buildings could be retained aspart of the masterplan. Thereafter, detailed condition and structuralsurveys have been undertaken to clarify whether the retention of theidentified buildings is physically viable. The outputs from these studieshave resulted in a detailed programme of short and medium term workswhich Grainger is in the process of implementing to ensure the retainedbuildings are watertight and protected until they are redeveloped.As a number of the listed buildings, in particular the CambridgeMilitary Hospital, have been vacant for a number of years. Graingerhas engaged with English Heritage and our own technical specialiststo ensure that during the period between submission and thedevelopment starting the buildings are made water tight and securefrom the elements. These buildings will be periodically inspected andworks undertaken as necessary to safeguard them from any furtherdeterioration until redeveloped. Appropriate interim uses and tenantswill be identified for retained buildings where possible, to minimisedeterioration and vandalism.Post development, Grainger intends to sell off all the residential elementsof the development with the roads, open spaces and infrastructure etc.adopted by the relevant authorities or handed over to a managementcompany, subject to agreement with the relevant adopting authorities.Keydeliverables associated with each DevelopmentZone ofWellesleyDevelopmentZoneApprox.UnitsAffordableListedBuildingsUsesA.Maida 228 80Smith Dorrien MaidaGymnasiumCommunity Use,Offices GymnasiumB.Coruna 705 247C.CMH 134 47CambridgeMilitary HospitalNon-residential institutions / assembly leisure (community day care) D1/D2,B1 and ancillaryD.

In order to provide a degree of flexibility a 5% variance can be applied to each development zone to allow for site specific technical constraints and opportunities.Notwithstanding this variance the site wide number of dwellings delivered at Wellesley is capped at 3,850. Where the actual numbers of units vary the quantum of affordable housing will adjust accordingly.
