New song against options B and C: a lament about this destructive cataclysm. Listen now!

ADD UPDATE, 19 November 2017: Ahead of Eastleigh Borough Council (EBC)’s critical meeting on its emerging Local Plan on 11 December, at which we believe the council will decide to pursue its options B and C (namely plans for 5,200 houses and a new link road north of Bishopstoke and Fair Oak), Ray Bellinger, a local resident, has composed and recorded THIS BRILLIANT SONG about the folly of EBC’s decision-making (the pictures are his too!). As Ray sings, “is this really what you want to do?” See his full lyrics below. PLEASE SHARE WIDELY! Thank you Ray.

Meanwhile, please, please attend THE CRUCIAL MEETING ON 11 DECEMBER: 7PM AT THE HILTON AT THE AGEAS BOWL.  We need EVERYONE against these proposals to be there.  


Eastleigh council is it true?
That you have decided to
Go ahead with what you’ve planned
To build roads through this beautiful land

To build housing where you say
Will only go to pave the way
To show contempt for thousands who
Lodged their protests straight to you

Destroy fields, the woods and river too
Is this really what you want to do?
When thousands have said it isn’t right
It would look like you’ve acted out of spite

A destructive cataclysm
Environmental vandalism
Locals, groups and other councils agree
You should vote no to options B and C

Destructive cataclysm
Evironmental vandalism
Destroy fields, woods and river too
Is this really what you want to do?
