Builders challenge Old Street decision

by Jim Forrest on 15 May, 2018

Bargate Homes has appealed against Fareham Council’s refusal of 150 homes on land west of Old Street, near the nature reserve. Deadline for appeals to the Planning Inspectorate is June 15.

Planning appeals are decided by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate, not Fareham Borough Council.
The Planning Inspectorate will hold a Public Inquiry to discuss the appeal. Residents who commented on the original application are able to attend – the date and venue will be announced later.
