“The team from Terence O’Rourke Ltd worked hard to achieve a development solution of real quality and value at Park Village. The resultant masterplan has taken into account local needs, creating an environment that is pleasant and safe. The detailed designs respond imaginatively to the character and setting of the conservation area in the core area. I am confident that the new community will have an attractive and distinctive character, while helping to regenerate this former hospital site.”

MIKE TAYLOR, Divisional Manager, NHS Estates South West

The practice was appointed by NHS Estates to assist them in the rationalisation and part disposal of the former Park Prewett Hospital site in Basingstoke. Terence O’Rourke provided planning, design and environmental services to secure both outline and detailed planning permission for a new residential community. The scheme known as ‘Park Village’ combines new homes and a village centre, all within an attractive landscaped setting.

The practice worked carefully with the client and local authority, to achieve a sensitive scheme that made best use of the site, whilst retaining its historic character and notable buildings.
