WHITCHURCH Town Council has opposed to plans for new housing in the area due “lack of information”.

The objections are in relation to a reserved matters planning application to build 34 new homes on land off Caesar’s Way.

Submitted to Pro Vision to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council was granted outline permission in March 2015.

However, the specifics of the plans have caused concerns among the local community with the town council saying “the lack of information provided regarding the proportion of use of differing materials” was not acceptable.

In the planning statement from Pro Vision it reads: “In exploring the further evolution of the site layout, we have reviewed up to date planning policy and latest supplementary planning guidance.

“We have also made various site visits during summer and winter months and carried out photographic surveys during these visits. We have studied ordnance survey data available, aerial photography and historical mapping of the local area.”

However, along with the town council, residents in the surrounding area have said the plans “lack detail” on what the proposed development would consist of.

In a letter of objection Robin Bacon said: “As a reserved matter, we do wish to register strong concern over the lack of detail in the application regarding the access of construction traffic to and from the public highway.

“The design constrictions of Caesar’s Way are such that it is clearly unsuitable for construction traffic - and it would be hazardous for local residents.”

Bob Madahar added: “The council has failed to take local infrastructure and services into account. Along with the development south of Bloswood Land, the roads and local health services will not be able to provide a reasonable level of service.”

The application seeks to provide a mix of affordable and open market homes with a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
