DEVELOPERS are planning to build almost 100 homes by one of Hampshire’s busiest bypasses, the Daily Echo can reveal.

Reside Developments have unveiled plans to build 90 homes on land off the A27 Segensworth bypass in Titchfield Common.

The proposed development would consist of a mixture of detached and semi-detached homes, short terraces and apartment blocks. Forty per cent of the homes would be affordable, say the developers.

Reside’s plan also include a public open space with a large play area for children and community allotments.

Reside said: “The scheme is designed to make the most of the existing green infrastructure, fitting into the existing setting, whilst establishing a new residential community with access to jobs and local facilities.

“We are keen to hear from local residents about the development and following consideration your views we intend to submit a planning application.”

Councillor Sarah Pankhurst, who represents Titchfield Common on Fareham borough council. has divided views on the plans.

She said: “It is good that the developers are promising 40 per cent affordability which is very important as we should have younger people living and working in Fareham.”

However, the councillor expressed concerns that the development could add to congestion on the A27 and did not have sufficient parking provision.

She added: “Developers also need to get Titchfield Common residents involved in the proposed plans as well as Titchfield residents.”

Reside are expected to submit a planning application in the new year.
