Over the last 10 months the negotiations with the developers on land East Of Horndean have been carried out to finalise the Section 106 agreement. Most of the time taken has been to review some of the highways aspects – for example the roundabouts on the B2149 in front of the development and by Rowlands Castle and the motorway junction. Multi agency agreements take a little while, but we have been able to use this to finalise the community aspects of the Section 106 agreement including the community building, cricket pitch, pavilion, allotments, public open space and more! The final tally in favour of the community is approximately £17,750,000.
12 months ago we promised one strategic development would get more community benefit than any piecemeal development ever would and below is the list of what Horndean and the surrounding area will get – All £17,750,000 of it.
It is a long list… and one we are all very proud of.
At this weekends presentation held at Merchistoun Hall around 200 local residents stopped in and saw the details and possible design for the new community building. Links to ALL of the consultation banners are at the end of this article including a copy of the questionnaires which, if you could not make it to the event, you are very welcome to fill in. Please either email or forward a hard copy to your local District Councillor or the Horndean Parish Council offices any time before the end of February.
Here is information on the new building and some of the ideas we have had so far:
Based on feedback from this weekend consultation (and any more we receive in the next month) local Parish and District councillors will progress with the plans feeding in the ideas that we receive.
Here are the links to the rest of the information boards. They give a bit more information about the school, public open space, employment sites and more:
