HANTS





* UNIQUE DEVELOPMENT IN THE HAMPSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE   TO REINSTATE A WATER WHEEL ON THE SITE OF A FORMER   18th CENTURY CORN MILL

* THE CONTEMPORARY WHEEL WILL HARNESS THE POWER      OF THE SURVIVING MILL POND AND WATERFALL TO              DELIVER HYRO-ELECTRICITY TO THE REMAINDER OF THE        SMALL HOLDING - COMPRISING THE ORIGINAL MILL            HOUSE, HISTORIC OUTBUILDINGS, MILL RACE STREAMS          AND SUROUNDING FIELDS AND PASTURES.

* FOLLOWING A YEAR LONG NEGOTIATION WITH THE             PLANNING AUTHORITY, PROPOSALS TO RE-CREATE THE         ORIGINAL MILL BUILDING, BASED ON EXTENSIVE                     RESEARCH OF THE GENRE, WERE NOT SUPPORTED. 

* THE WHEEL WILL BE ATTACHED TO A NEW OUTBUILDING       SERVING THE NEEDS OF THE WORKING SMALLHOLDING       AND THE RESIDENTIAL MILL HOUSE.

* BEING LOCATED IN A CONSERVATION AREA IN THE             COUNTRYSIDE THE ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS TO THE  WATER   MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND THE IMMEDIATE                         ENVIRONMENT ARE REQUIRED TO BE SIGNIFICANT.
