Councillor Davod Harrison

Local Housing Plans

housing plan

The New Forest District Council met this week to confirm their plans for where housing should be built over the 20 year period, 2016 – 2036.

Very large areas of land north of Totton and in Marchwood are proposed.

At the moment, these are green fields, mainly used by grazing horses.

The plans aren’t yet “set in concrete”, the District Council is legally obliged to consult with the public about what they plan to do.

It is now your chance to make any representations you wish.

There are some sites already allocated for housing on former plans, which haven’t yet been developed.

It seems sensible to remind you that, just because a site is allocated for housing, it does not necessarily mean that it will be developed.

The Tory government has still failed to find a way of compelling developers to build houses.

It seems a lot of these companies are just happy to sit on land and see the asset value increase, without all the bother of actually building anything!
