D-Day for controversial 1,600 new homes scheme

First published in News

COUNCILLORS are due to consider today the first of two housing proposals for the Eastleigh borough by a consortium of developers.

The developers want to build 250 homes at Pylands Lane, in Bursledon, and a further 1,400 homes on a golf course near Boorley Green in the Botley parish.

The Bursledon proposal will be discussed at a special meeting of the Bursledon, Hamble-le-Rice and Hound Local Area Committee tonight at the Hamble Community Sports College, at 5.30pm.

The outline application includes building a Sunday’s Hill Bypass and new junctions with Heath House Lane and Dodwell Lane and a new children’s play area.

Proposals for Boorley Green will be decided on at a meeting next Monday. Developers say the project could create up to 950 jobs.

 

 

Protesters against the planned development at Boorley Green, along with members of the Hedge End and Bursledon Action Group who are opposed to the Bursledon plans, took to the streets of Botley a fortnight ago in an attempt to persuade councillors to refuse approval.

Every road is jam packed at rush hour but that is not a reason not to build the houses which are urgently needed.

After all the other 23 hours in the day the roads run very smoothly

Will the LibDem parliamentary candidate be popping along to listen to voters and tell them how he is saving green spaces?

Nick Clegg was taking utter codswallop yesterday about protecting Eastleighs green spaces - these guys have no shame....Historic Stoneham Park (designed by Capability brown and a wildlife haven) is on their hit list as well.,,
Don't trust anything they say - as an Eastleigh resident I have wised up to them saying one thing in their newsletters and then doing the opposite. They even had the gall to claim to be protecting the central Rec, whilst simultaneously offering a massive chunk of it to Sainsburys....beggar

I have no doubt that people protested when the protesters houses were built but life goes on and so does the building, the only thing i would say is had it not been for years of uncontrolled immigration then many of the thousands and thousands of houses that are now required would not have been needed and we still haven't learn't a lesson because we will shortly be flinging the doors open to thousands more.

I would like to point out that Eastleigh already has 1,215 empty homes in its area, nearly all privately owned.
An active empty property strategy can bring these homes back into use, and help to alleviate the need to build new ones.
Each home brought back into use attracts funding of 6k to the authority!
