If you live in, or close to, Bishopstoke, Fair Oak, Upham, Owslebury, Allbrook, Colden Common, Chandler’s Ford, Highbridge, Brambridge, Twyford or Otterbourne
, your life could be about to change for the worse. You should know that Eastleigh Borough Council (EBC) is seriously considering approving ‘options B and C’ for its Local Plan (see above), which would involve the development of 6,000+ houses and a major road-building programme. The timing is now getting very tight with EBC due to identify its preferred outcome by April 2017.
As the developers’ plans show, these devastating proposals would:
- Destroy much-loved, precious countryside, impacting a Site of Special Scientific Interest, two sites of Ancient Natural Woodland and numerous Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation;
- Destroy the unique identity of each of your communities;
- Destroy your quality of life in many ways, including through increased traffic congestion and pressure on local services.
We are a campaign fighting to protect the future of these villages and surrounding areas. We believe EBC is in danger of making a very bad decision
, for the borough, ourselves and future generations, and we intend to do all we can to prevent this outcome. We now need everyone’s help to do so.
This is our moment to stand together to ensure reasoned and transparent decision-making by our elected officials. We must seize it.
Our campaign inevitably costs money. Whilst we are volunteers, we have also hired the best planning, traffic / highways consultants and other professionals to ensure we have the highest possible chance of success. Our target is £50,000 and we have so far raised £22,000 – although we have spent/committed £17,500. Clearly we are spending every penny as wisely as we can.
PLEASE DONATE NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
