Policy SPS12:  Chineham Railway Station

This 1.8 hectare site lies to the North West of Chineham and is safeguarded for the development of a new passenger railway station and associated car parking.

6.214 The delivery of a railway station at Chineham, which would be served by the Basingstoke to Reading stopping service, would provide access to the local area’s residential developments and business parks. The provision of the railway station would contribute towards reducing car use within the local area and in the wider A33 corridor, resulting in environmental, social and economic benefits. It is recognised that this site may have some biodiversity value and any loss of biodiversity will be compensated for on-site or elsewhere. The site is defined on the Policies Map.
6.215 Work is continuing with Hampshire County Council, Network Rail and the current train operator to explore opportunities to deliver the station development.
