The latest stage in the planning process to create a community on the eastern side of Eastleigh Borough is considered by Councillors on Thursday 30 September – and members of the public will have the opportunity to give their views and ask questions at the meeting.
The report is the next step in the planning process to create the One Horton Heath development on land bounded by Burnetts Lane, Fir Tree Lane and Allington Lane. If agreed it will create up to 2,500 homes (including affordable housing), together with a school, a local centre with retail and business units and community buildings, sports facilities, public open space and new roads, footpaths and cycleways. Outline planning permission has already been granted for a scheme that includes 1,400 homes.
The application carries a wide range of conditions relating to issues including, for example: sustainability, protecting the environment, preserving ecology and wildlife habitats, the provision of play facilities, the use of sports pitches, drainage, noise management, lighting, parking and ‘Secured by Design’ crime prevention measures.
Local residents and other interested parties can attend the Horton Heath Development Management Committee meeting at 4pm on Thursday 30 September. It takes place in the Cedar Hall, Kings Community Church, Upper Northam Road, Hedge End. Members of the public will be able to give their views to committee members, or ask questions, at the meeting. Seating is limited and, to take part, speakers will need to register by 12 noon on Wednesday 29 September by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
