Farnborough civic quarter regeneration

The civic quarter sits to the south of Farnborough town centre and presents a significant opportunity for development.

Give your views on the civic quarter masterplan

The Rushmoor Development Partnership (RDP) has been drawing up a comprehensive masterplan for the civic quarter with the support of LDA Design, the award-winning designers of London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and using feedback from public engagement events in March 2021, as well as in 2019.

As the RDP looks to develop a final version of its masterplan, it is now carrying out further public consultation to get local people's views, before submitting a planning application to the council for the regeneration scheme later this year. 

The consultation runs until Sunday 26 September.

You can find out more and give your views on the civic quarter pages on the RDP's website.

Visit drop-in sessions

There will also be two drop-in sessions at the council offices in Farnborough to make sure as many residents as possible are able to influence the designs. The RDP project team will be on hand to answer any questions about to the proposals.

These sessions will be held on:

  • Thursday 16 September between  5pm and 8pm
  • Saturday 18 September between midday and 4pm

About the civic quarter

The civic quarter is currently home to Farnborough library, the leisure centre (now closed), Westmead House (offices), a skate park, surface car parks and a public green space. It is also the site of the now-demolished Elles Hall and police station. 

The site offers significant opportunities for a development that integrates the area with the town centre.

The civic quarter will be a vibrant mixed-use space, providing new opportunities for town centre living alongside active ground floor uses, such as cafes and restaurants along with the leisure centre, library and community centre.

Improvements to the public space will see an improved central green, forming the focal point for events, and improved pedestrian links between the town centre (at the side of Iceland) and Farnborough Business Park.
