PLANS for some 150 houses on land to the west of Old Street have now been submitted.
Our autumn issues warned this was likely, and we alerted hundreds of residents through emails and our Facebook page when the plans were posted on the Council’s website.
The deadline for comments was January 12 – so the timing of the application just before the Christmas break meant the time available for many residents to voice their views was very limited.
You can see the application – ref P/17/1451/OA – at www.fareham.gov.uk
Fareham Council does not support the application. The
land is part of the Countryside Gap, even under the revised Local Plan now being considered.
But a Government inspector
over-ruled the Council’s refusal of a similar-sized scheme in Portchester.
We hope that the importance of this site as a buffer for the nationally important Titchfield Haven nature reserve will protect it from a similar fate.
