Sir John Moore Barracks is the home of the Army Training Regiment and dates from 1986, but the site has been in military use since 1918.
Following a review of all DIO sites, the site was declared surplus to requirements and is to close in 2021.
The site lies between the village of Littleton and the Harestock district of Winchester, and consists of an urban core surrounded by extensive woodland and down areas. We were appointed to undertake a thorough site appraisal and analysis in terms of the planning and engineering constraints, and to prepare a masterplan which optimised the return for the Crown. A range of options were prepared including Research & Development, Business Park, Prison, Sports and a new mixed-use community.
