ADD UPDATE: 9 July 2017: Eastleigh Borough Council has announced the venue for its council meeting on 20 JULY, at which it will take a critical decision relating to its Local Plan options. The meeting, which will take place at 7pm, will be held at Kings Community Church, Upper Northam Road, Hedge End, Southampton, SO30 4BZ.
Join us to make local opinion heard at this crucial meeting when we believe the council, led by Keith House (Lib Dem, pictured), will push forward with 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 A MASSIVE DEVELOPMENT ON SOME OF HAMPSHIRE’S FINEST 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 abandon these plans (known as options B and C) this time, a big turnout WILL make a significant difference when we demonstrate the strength of local opposition to the independent planning inspector.
PLEASE SAVE THIS DATE AND ASK OTHERS TO DO SO TOO! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE.
