ADD UPDATE, 27 April 2017: Ahead of the Hampshire County Council (HCC) elections on 4 May, ADD has invited each candidate for each ward that will be impacted by options B and C of Eastleigh Borough Council (EBC)’s Local Plan (namely its plans for 6,000+ houses and a major new road north of Bishopstoke and Fair Oak) to submit an article of no more than 100 words that describes their position with regards to this proposed major development area.
On 27 April, Andy Moore, UKIP candidate for Eastleigh North (including Allbrook), sent us the following email:
“Over the last few years I have been finding lots of pollution problems with sewage leaking into our rivers. This happens mainly when it rains. Southern Water say the sewage treatment works is now maxed out and will take five years of upgrading to cope with what was on the last forward plan. EBC does not have one now so, until this very important infrastructure is in place, options B and C should not be allowed to proceed. This would, without consideration, destroy our green fields and the wildlife that depends on it. Stop all uncontrolled building.”
