If you already live in Andover, Hampshire, you may have heard about the redevelopment plans for the town centre that began back in June 2019 with the appointment of Heminway Design by Test Valley Borough Council.
As you may have guessed – we love our home town of Andover, so much so that as part of our work, we actively encourage people to come and live in our great town! It is full of history and has some fabulous places of interest, as well as being conveniently located near the border of the South East and South West of England with easy reach to many other amazing locations across the South of the UK. The train links can take you directly to London in less than 1 hour 30 minutes and places like Southampton, Basingstoke and the beautiful beaches of Bournemouth are all within an hour drive away – perfect days out for the whole family to enjoy.
Andover has a vast collection of useful amenities, with a large number of high street shops and independent businesses as well as a reputable college, fabulous arts community including the Lights theatre and leisure facilities and also some wonderful countryside links that are within walking distance of the town. The town centre of Andover has long been described by residents as being a little tired and outdated, with so much potential to make everything a little more cohesive and make better use of the town’s wonderful features such as the Georgian architecture, River Anton and historic churches.
The plans for the redevelopment have been unveiled and as a local business, we are delighted to say that we are impressed with the design concepts that Heminway Design have created based on the feedback of residents that responded to a survey on what they would like to see be incorporated into the plans.
