Where local housing should be built
New Forest District Council Plan released. Your chance to comment!
Posted by Councillor David Harrison on Saturday, 9 June 2018
New Forest District Council has just approved plans for where they think housing should be built over the next 20 year period.
It’s quite a significant step.
It will mean that a lot of our green fields in the district will be used for new developments.
The National Park itself will be largely spared, only increasing the pressure on the rest of the new Forest.
In this short video, explain what this means and refer to conversations I have had with residents in the Fawley and Calshot area.
This part of the district has some of the most significant changes planned. Nothing is yet set in stone. The public still have a chance to comment on the plans.
Has enough thought been given to infrastructure needed?
Will our roads cope?
Will the extra housing help make the case for the restoration of a passenger service along the Waterside railway line?
