History

This Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) was established in 2017. The purpose of this SANG is to avoid increased recreational pressure on the Wealdon Heaths 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 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.

Development

Current and future management seeks to enhance the biodiversity and recreational value of the site.
