  1. Councils around The Solent are working with Natural England, Southern Water and the Environment Agency to stop nitrogen from housing wastewater and agricultural sources accelerating the growth of algae and damaging protected wildlife habitats.
    How does that work in Horndean?

  2. Housebuilding in parts of Hampshire has been placed on hold because of warnings over nitrate pollution in the Solent.
    Five councils have accepted advice from Natural England that “planning permission should not be granted” unless developments were “nitrate neutral”.
    The government body said its advice followed recent European Court rulings.
    Portsmouth, Fareham, Gosport, Havant and East Hampshire councils have said some developments are on hold.

    High levels of nitrogen pollution are already impacting protected sites in the Horndean area and new housing contributes additional nitrogen.”

    Natural England said its advice was not binding and councils could depart from it if they had good reason.
    It said: “High levels of nitrogen pollution are already impacting protected sites in the Solent area and new housing contributes additional nitrogen.”
