In April this year, WYG held a consultation for their proposals on ‘Land East Of Horndean’ at Merchistoun Hall which was very well attended by the community. In the last months they advise they have been incorporating data from the consultation as well as carrying out their EIA – Environmental Impact Assessment on the site.
The land is the most favored location to build out our housing needs and provided the amended plans show the full extent of the community facilities we are looking for, I will be fully supporting the scheme as our nest solution to satisfy our needs. If approved this will then offer a significant level of protection to Horndean against building in more harmful locations and I am certain we will see a significant change in the success rate of applications we receive.
WYG have kindly forwarded me a copy of the consultation leaflet which is below, and again are sending a copy to every household in the Parish to ensure they are informed and invited to attend.
The consultation is on Thursday 31st July between 3:00pm and 8:00pm at Napier Hall (next door to the Colonial Bar)
