ADD UPDATE: 3 June 2017: Eastleigh Borough Council has said that it will make a decision on which options of its Local Plan it will choose at its next full council meeting on 20 JULY (at 7pm – location to be decided).
Join us to make local opinion heard at this crucial meeting when we believe the council, led by Keith House (Lib Dem), will push through its preferred GIANT housing development (enough to cover its housing need for the next 20 years) in the very north of the borough (Allbrook, Bishopstoke and Fair Oak), right on the border with Winchester’s southern villages (Upham, Owslebury, Twyford, Colden Common, Bishops Waltham, Otterbourne). THIS IS MASSIVE! Help save your countryside!
As TV naturalist Chris Packham says: “It is desperately important that people get behind the campaign to prevent this piece of eco-vandalism.” MORE THAN 6,000 HOUSES (equivalent to a town more than three times the size of Colden Common), several thousand new vehicles daily on our existing roads plus a major new road driven through ancient woodland and unspoilt countryside. Once gone, it will be lost forever – but we CAN do something about it.
Come to this meeting and join us in protesting against this wanton destruction of our beautiful countryside. Whilst we may not persuade the council to choose the more sensible options in Allington Lane this time, a big turnout WILL make a significant difference when we demonstrate the strength of local opposition to the independent planning inspector.
7PM, 20 JULY 2017 – SAVE THIS DATE!
