DEVELOPMENT: New Queens Head

First published in News

TWENTY-ONE affordable homes are to be built in Winchester after planning chiefs approved plans to build on the site of an estate’s last pub.

Winchester City Council gave the green light for the council houses on the former site of the New Queens Head, Stanmore, at a planning meeting.

The estate’s last pub was controversially demolished last year after a £1m council buy-out to free land for housing.

There were no objections to building on the nowempty site.

The one-, two- and threebedroom homes in Stanmore Lane will be saved for local people on the social housing list at first letting.

I'm glad they're "affordable" and "social". I had to work 44 years to buy my home so clearly it's unaffordable and anti-social.
Whatever happened to the words "public housing" or "council housing"?

It is todays' nonsensical fad of dressing up things to placate those who are easily offended. Being easily offended is almost at epidemic levels in this country. Driven by the greed of individuals and lawyers we are living in a society that is gagged at the risk of being jumped on by the "offensive police"
Still, at least the council are creating another ghetto for teenage mothers to procreate and bleed all of the hardworking populous dry.
