The following applications were given APPROVAL for outline planning on 24th January at the FBC planning committee meeting.
P/17/0746/OA – 85 dwellings
P/17/0752/OA – 140 dwellings
P/17/0845/ OA- 180 dwellings (aka : P/16/0959/OA)
At the meeting, several excellent deputations were given by Warsash Councillors and SWWW team members against the applications.
Many references to the council own policy were highlighted stating that these developments would be contrary to their own policy’s but sadly all these references were ignored.
The result was a close vote of 5 to 4 in favour of all 3 applications .
Many members of the committee stated that they had NO choice to vote for the applications as they admitted the Planners and the Council had failed to demonstrate that they had a robust 5 Year Plan for housing .
Amazingly enough, HCC (Hampshire County Council) who are in charge of roads & education etc had no objections to the plans even though the local roads and schools are all full !
2 more applications proposed for Warsash are still yet to be decided :
P/17/0998/OA – Land &Partners for 172 dwellings – East Of Brook Lane
P/17/1284/OA – Ms Hanslip for 37 dwellings – Land adjoining 79 Greenaway Lane
The next Planning Committee meeting is on 21st Feb. Amongst the applications due to be decided on this date are :
P/17/1055/OA – Mr Greg Plunkett – 42 dwellings – Sovereign Crescent
P/17/1366/OA – 70 dwellings – Heath Road
