Over the last few months Southcott Homes have been holding consultations looking at the development of a site off Lovedean Lane. This is very much outside of my patch, but is of interest to all Horndean residents as it is part of the progressive change we may face. The text below is from local resident Stephen Cox:
`Following the controversial Bargate Homes planning application in Lovedean Lane, a second developer has provided the attached proposal at a `public exhibition` on the 27th March in Lovedean Village Hall, for backland development up the valley side behind the properties on the west side of Lovedean Lane, from the Bethesda Mission hall towards New Road. Again, this is another unwelcome `intervention` into Lovedean, with what appears to be a suggestion of some 40 properties built on rising ground which, if allowed, will have an immense impact on the rural, visual amenity and adjacent properties of the part of the village, as well as increasing traffic and potentially adding to the flood risk. If you have objections to this proposal, please contact Southcott Homes on 01329 220227, or EHDC Planning Dept on 01730266551.`
Thank you to Stephen Cox for emailing me a photograph of the plans and they have been updated on Southcott’s website here: http://www.southcotthomes.co.uk/public-consultation/lovedean/
Text from the website advises that they are still inviting comments to consider and incorporate into the design before submitting an application to East Hants District Council.
Please email comments to email@example.com copying in Cllr Sara Schillemore who will ensure they are also passed to the case officer. Sara is on firstname.lastname@example.org
