Hart District Council has started work on a new 33-hectare country park at Bramshot Farm between Fleet and Farnborough to help support Hartland Park a new 1,500 home development at the old Pyestock site.

The purchase of the site and the works to creat the park has been funded by a loan of 5.3 million rec by the Council from the Enterprise M3 Local Partnership earley this year.

The Country Park will provide a fantastic new facility for residents of both Hart and Rushmoor.

In addition to providing additional recreational open space and supporting facilities for local residents, the open space is needed to support the delivery of new homes in Hart and Rushmoor. Developers of new homes will make a contribution towards the Country Park which will repay the loan and ensure the continued maintenance of the Park.

Planning permission for use of the site for recreational purposes was granted in March with works starting on site in the last few weeks. The initial works will create a new circular walk and provide car parking and signage.

The Country Park is expected to open to the public in autumn 2017. The completed park will include play areas, picnic sites and toilet facilities.
