PLANNERS in Fareham will revisit proposals for 90 new homes on land within the Stubbington gap.

Bargate and Vivid Homes have submitted a reserved matters application to Fareham Borough Council for 90 homes with public open spaces and associated infrastructure.

The project outline was approved on appeal by government inspectors after the council failed to determine the application in time.

Now the developers need permission for the layout, scale and appearance of the development.

If approved, the development will provide a mixture of one, two, three and four-bedroom houses “set within a landscaped setting”.

Planning documents, submitted by the applicant, said: “Our proposal is to create a new development that integrates within the surrounding environment.

“Ultimately the proposed will realise a development that meets future housing needs, including much-needed affordable housing to provide a balanced, sustainable community.

“The design provides family homes and apartments on the site and still achieves a well-considered and attractive environment, balancing efficient use of the site with good place making.”

It adds the development would provide open spaces which include habitat areas and a playground.

The application has received 30 comments from the public, all in objection to the project, one of which was written by Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage.

She said: “Whilst the application was opposed by local residents, Fareham Borough Council, Gosport Borough Council and not a part of existing or emerging local plans, I do accept that outline permission was granted at appeal.

“While the applicant seeks to ‘Safeguarding and enhancing the existing landscape framework’, I cannot agree that building on a field, which is part of our vital strategic gap, into a housing estate is safeguarding our local green spaces.

“The applicant also states ‘The site access must be carefully designed to minimise any impact’ However I strongly believe that access to this development via Brookers Lane is extremely dangerous.

“Additionally, I am further concerned about the pressures that this development would further put on our already full schools, Dental Practices and GP Surgeries.”
