The alternate minima for VFR flights is 1500ft and 8km. (AIP ENR 1.1 para 11.7.2.14)
An alternate must be provided if the conditions are below the alternate minima ( AIP ENR 1.1 para 11.7.2.1). So, for 4/8 of cloud with a base of exactly 1500ft you do not need an alternate and if the visibility is exactly 8km you do not need an alternate. There must be more than 4/8 cloud below 1500ft or visibility less than 8km to impose the alternate requirement.
