STOP Gladman Development’s application! Act by Friday 7th December

Gladman Developments, who put in a planning application to build up to 65 houses behind 46 Lymington Bottom  in 2017 have applied again. Their first application was refused by East Hampshire District Council (EHDC) in January 2018 .

The reasons for EHDC’s refusal of this speculative application have not changed. But WE NEED EVERYONE TO OBJECT AGAIN to ensure that EHDC understand the strength of feeling against further development. This proposed development is outside of the settlement boundary. We should aim to get well over 500 objections.

To object either write to EHDC quoting the application number 56082/003 (at  Planning Services, EHDC, Penns Place, Petersfield, GU31 4EX) or go to their website at https://planningpublicaccess.easthants.gov.uk/online-applications/ , search for 56082/003 then click “Make a comment” button.

Everyone over 18 years in each household can object. Make sure you click the OBJECT button and then enter your comment.

See how to object for general guidance on writing objections.

Specific issues with this application are:

  • EHDC has an adopted Local Plan with allocated sites. This site is not allocated and is outside the Settlement Boundary.
  • The Local Plan is based upon an adopted local Neighbourhood Plan approved after a conclusive 91% referendum vote.
  • EHDC has a proven and robust 5 year land supply.
  • EHDC has a proven house delivery with positive trajectory. Four Marks and Medstead has delivered 316 dwellings in the first 5 years of the Local plan against a minimum target of 175 (80% over-delivery).
  • Local services and infrastructure are acknowledged as unsustainable by EHDC and Planning Inspectors because of roads (school traffic, A31 junction congestion) and remoteness from village centre.

Please object now and leave EHDC and Gladman Developments in no doubt as to our commitment to fighting this application.

Thank You!
