The Development Proposal

On the very edge of the South Downs National Park, Long Copse Lane and the surrounding Hollybank fields are home to a diverse range of wildlife, some of which are found in very few other locations in the UK. People call this area home, and we’re very concerned about the effect a development of 260 houses will have on its delicate balance.

Why we object

Traffic

Increased traffic flow into a narrow rural lane making it unsafe for walkers, cyclist and horse riders.

Countryside

Loss of countryside on edge of Hollybank Woods and the National Park.

Trees and Wildlife

Adverse impact on trees and protected species that call this area home.

Suitability for Build

Ground stability for building and existing issues with drainage.

Infrastructure

Increased pressure on local infrastructure including schools and doctors’ surgeries

Why is it important to register

There is quite a small window of opportunity to raise objections following the submission of a formal planning application. Often developers place applications during the holiday period in the hope they will be unnoticed.

By registering we will be able to alert you when a formal planning application is received. We can provide information on how to navigate the Havant Planning website along with guidance on how best raise an objection, for those not familiar with the process.
