New schools

Subject to funding the first students are expected to be admitted into the new Mill Chase Academy senior school in September 2019. The school will be located close to the new town centre and will include a range of new sports pitches and facilities. Plans for the extension and improvement to the existing Bordon Junior School are underway along with those for a new, town centre based, primary school.

Future Skills Centre

Plans and funding have been approved for the Future Skills Centre on Louisburg Barracks which will provide a variety of vocational training with a focus on construction skills. Hampshire County Council will be overseeing this project with construction already underway and completion projected to be autumn 2017.

Business & Enterprise Centre

The former Sergents’ Mess on Louisburg Barracks will be transformed into a Business and Enterprise Centre which will enable new jobs to be created. The Business and Enterprise Centre will offer new office and training space for small businesses and in conjunction with the Future Skills Centre is expected to generate 500 new jobs. This is being led by the Homes and Communities Agency and is expected to open autumn 2017.

Business & Community Hub

The Chieftain and Centurion buildings on Quebec Park are being transformed into a new Business and Community Hub with a central glass room café. This will allow for the creation of 100 new jobs and apprenticeships. The project is being led by Radian and the hub is anticipated to open autumn 2017.
