HERE are the type of homes which Barratt Southern Counties Ltd. hopes to build at Aldershot's controversial Manor Park site.

The developer released these artistic impressions this week after winning its battle to build on the land which lies in a conservation area.

According to the company, the blueprint is based on integrated environment housing schemes proven in Holland over the past 20 years.

It says the scheme will feature shared roads and open space in a safe, traffic-controlled environment where pedestrians and cyclists take precedence.

Barratt, which bought the seven-acre site from Farnborough College of Technology for £8.7-million, is currently preparing to submit a detailed planning application to Rushmoor Council planners.

It is understood the company is looking to build 139 homes on the land in Church Lane East.

The company's plans have faced fierce opposition from local residents who argued that the proposals would ruin the conservation area.

They also objected to Barratt's application to demolish a group of former college buildings on the site.

The protesters won the first round of the battle, but then the council's planners had a change of heart and gave the green light for the almost derelict buildings to be pulled down.
