Another week and another consultation for housing locally. This one is called ‘Crookley Park’ or better known as ‘Blendworth Fabrics’ estate. The consultation letter has a simple leaflet (below) and it is not clear if they are proposing to demolish the existing buildings and build on Blendworth Fabrics warehouses, closing the business, or if they are going to try to fit in the 33 new homes the covering letter refers to on the existing land.
It is difficult to see how this might be achieved given the extensive tree coverage without the Arbocultural officer having several litters of kittens due to the sheer mass of tree roots and inevitable damage, but I am sure the consultation will make this clear.
Crookley Park is also an employment site in Horndean, so if the plans result in the loss of this business then this would also be an unwelcome change.
The consultation is to be held at Napier Hall which is on Portsmouth Road and runs between 2:30pm and 7:30pm on Thursday the 10th July
Hopefully the consultation will result in a set of the plans and consultation details online, and this being the case I will post a link so people who can not make the consultation can comment. Please also copy your comments to Cllr Denston whose ward it is in.
Please note that the consultation is on the 10th JULY not 10th JUNE as on their advert below!!!
