NEW plans for ten new flats in the heart of Eastleigh have been revealed.

Under the scheme the former bed and breakfast, Chestnut Lodge Guest House, would be demolished.

The site on Southampton Road will see the construction of a three-storey block consisting of two one-bedroom apartments and eight two-bedroom apartments with ancillary parking, amenity space and bin and cycle storage.

It comes after previous plans for the site were withdrawn following concerns from local residents.

The new application, which has been submitted to Eastleigh Borough Council, has also sparked a complaint.

Wendy Miller of neighbouring road Chestnut Avenue said in a letter to the council: “Out of keeping with the surrounding area, insufficient parking causing more congestion in Chestnut Avenue. No consideration for the neighbours or people who have resided in the area for many years. We already suffer parking problems with this property as it stands”

The previous plans were withdrawn in 2017. That application stated plans to construct six one-bedroom flats and six two-bedroom flats in a three-storey block following demolition of existing buildings.

The new application will be discussed by Eastleigh planners on March 7.
