Two new planning applications have been received which are in the Fareham – Stubbington strategic gap which are essentially revisions of previously refused or withdrawn applications:
Persimmon Homes has submitted an application for 209 houses south of Oakcroft Lane, Stubbington (previously 261 houses) and Hallam Land has submitted an application on Newlands Farm for 1,200 houses, an 80 bed care home, two-form entry 420 place primary school, a local centre including a community centre and healthcare facility. Access is via Longfield Avenue and Peak Lane. Public open space includes the laying out of a new country park and sports facilities; drainage infrastructure; walking and cycling infrastructure and other associated works. There is no access onto the Stubbington Bypass which is now under construction.
I believe that these applications are premature to the consideration of public comments on Fareham’s emerging Local Plan (including the Supplement consulted upon in early 2020) and to the Council approving a Publication Plan for statutory consultation later this year. This will be followed by independent examination by a government inspector at a public inquiry.
The applications will be uploaded to the Council’s planning application portal for public comment once they have been validated.
