This space is managed in partnership with Deadwater Valley Trust
Region: South West
Prince Philip Park will comprise a variety of public open spaces totalling 114 hectares (equivalent to 158 football pitches). In order to preserve and enhance these spaces the areas will be managed by the Land Trust on behalf of Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC). Hogmoor Inclosure is a more natural open space within this area and is the third largest Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) of its kind in the UK, containing a variety of habitats and natural features and will be a space where visitors can experience nature. It will be managed by the Land Trust on your behalf. Established in 2017, the purpose of this SANG is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area (SPA), Shortheath Common Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Woolmer Forest (SAC) from new residential development by providing an alternative recreation area that offers a similar experience to the SPA and SACs.
Hogmoor Inclosure is a haven for a variety of species of birds, with Foreys pond an excellent destination for those looking to take in some of the local wildlife. Hogmoor’s bat hibernation bunker is also an important facility to protect the local bat population, and if you go for a walk in the twilight you might see some of these amazing creatures flying around. You may also come across some of our bug hotels which provide a home for Hogmoor’s smallest residents, allowing them to shelter, grow and thrive.
With over 54 hectares of woodland and heathland – equivalent to 70 football pitches – there is plenty of space for everyone to experience a breath of fresh air. You can enjoy walking, running and cycling trails, a play and picnic area, and great opportunities for wildlife spotting. Café Hogmoor is an excellent place to relax, includes an education room, and has toilets and changing facilities.
The green spaces are all about bringing the new community together, providing a safe, welcoming environment for all. Regular events and activities
will be organised throughout the year to be enjoyed by local residents.
Prince Philip Park has a dedicated Estates and Community Officer from the Land Trust who will have overall responsibility for delivering activities to bring the new community and residents together. They will supervise the work of Deadwater Valley Trust and other contractors, undertake regular site inspections and will be available to meet with residents to discuss future plans for Prince Philip Park.
The Land Trust believes a green space works best when the community is actively engaged and involved in how it is managed.
Our role will be to work in partnership with residents, volunteers and community groups so that the green spaces at Prince Philip Park are used in a way to provide maximum benefit to the people who call it home.
The site has open pedestrian access 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but our facilities are limited.

Hogmoor Inclosure was formerly an off-road tracked vehicle training area for the Army. It is set in the heart of Prince Philip Park, a major redevelopment of the former Prince Philip barracks that includes the creation of 2,400 new local homes. The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) is a joint venture between Dorchester Regeneration and Taylor Wimpey appointed by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation to deliver the redevelopment.
With 2,400 new homes planned over the next 10 years there will be new employment opportunities and jobs created for local people. The creation
of the new town centre will see a variety of shops, cafes and office space as well as a leisure centre and cinema. With new transport links, Prince Philip Park will become a great place for new residents to live, work and play.
We are always on the look out for enthusiastic, committed people who want to make a real and lasting difference in their local community.Get Involved
