Photographs of Standford Grange Farm

Background Standford Grange Farm and Eveley Wood are owned by Hampshire County Council and are expected to form part of the assembly of the land required for the Eco-town. The current tenant of the farm holding has an agricultural tenancy with Hampshire County Council. Regular briefings have been held with the tenant regarding the expected requirement for part or all of the Standford Grange Farm land to be included within the Eco-town proposals.

The farm operates as a beef farming unit, which includes a pedigree herd of Charolais cows. The operational area of the farm is 46ha. 2.8ha of Standford Grange Farm has been leased to Standford Grange House on a 99 year lease. The lease runs until April 2095. Currently neither Standford Grange Farm or Eveley Wood (SINC) provide public access.
