Last year EHDC Planning committee refused the Sunley Homes planning application for 40 homes on Blendworth Lane. This was a difficult application to weigh up as the development would have brought special accommodation for disabled servicemen, a very worthy cause, and a new parish council office, something that could help the Parish Council use more of its funds on community projects than renting a building. It would put additional traffic on Blendworth Lane and build on open fields in the conservation zone which would have set a very dangerous principle.
The planning appeal is going to be heard on Tuesday 9th June at Petersfield Town Hall from 10:00am.
The appeal is open to the public and for local residents will be a very interesting experience with Queens Council presenting the case for and against. Hopefully though EHDC will be successful in fighting the appeal off.
