Green light for homes plans
11:17am Wednesday 16th July 2014 in News
PLANNING chiefs have agreed to a development in an affluent part of Winchester despite objections raised by the local residents’ association.
Three three-bed terraced houses will be built on the steep inclines of Quarry Road, in the coveted area of St Giles’ Hill, even though 34 letters of objection were received.
Alan Fosters, of the St Giles Residents’ Association, said the area “was at risk of being seriously compromised” should the development go ahead.
Council members voted unanimously in favour of the project.
