Full Planning: Mixed-Use Lakes Leisure Resort in Hampshire
Baca Architects are delighted to announce that ‘Hollybush Lakes’ in Hampshire has been submitted for full planning.
The site houses six man-made lakes and will reconnect to the Blackwater Valley Footpath, its green space previously under-utilised and not open to the general public. The proposal offers the opportunity to restore the site back to nature for public enjoyment and ecological enhancement. The project aims to re-open the footpath for public use and encourage residents to enjoy the beauty of the lakeside with improved connectivity.
The proposals include:
An aquatic sports centre which offers water based activities such as kayaking, boating and a seasonal inflatable assault course alongside gym facilities and an elevated cafe.
An equestrian centre, offers stabling, grazing and schooling facilities alongside overnight guest accommodation for a local riding school.
Floating holiday accommodation within the site offers immersive lakeside holiday accommodation and fishing experiences for visiting guests and introduces ‘eco-tourism’ to the local area.
