This is an important time for Fareham as the new Local Plan is being debated and residents views are being sought.
On Planning, we are continually questioning how decisions are reached and arguing for transparency. Residents justifiably complain to us of a lack of infrastructure accompanying new developments. Alex Brims wants the council to take a more assertive approach when developers say that it is not “viable” for them to provide affordable housing. We believe our Council should lobby central government to lift the borrowing limits for councils to build housing which is actually suited to the needs of the residents of our borough.
