H2 - Provision of Affordable Housing

Object

HA2 Newgate Lane South, Peel Common 475 Given the continuing issues with traffic both out of and into Gosport, a development within close proximity of the congested areas seems ridiculous. I am a home owner in Gosport and would strongly consider moving out of the area should more homes continue to be built and therefore traffic increases, as would, I'm sure, many home owning tax payers. Building homes does not solve the issues Gosport, Fareham and the surrounding areas has. The houses deemed to be 'affordable' are not such for the low earners who need help to buy. Nor will they benefit those who do not, be it they chose to or simply cannot work. Schooling and doctors are a huge issues with continued developments, although it is likely Bridgemary will be able to take senior pupils, the smaller (Infant, junior and primary schools) in the surrounding area clearly do not have capacity. Nor do the overflowing and crowded doctors surgeries!

"Development allocation HA3 includes the prospect of accommodation ""for the elderly"" (Older people). Policy H2 applies affordable housing policy to ""ageing care or older persons housing"". It should be made clear that affordable housing policy will only be applicable to specialist accommodation for older people falling into Use Class C3. If this is not the case and it also applies to Class C2 development it would stop such development taking place. This is due to the increase cost borne by Class2 developments in terms of care and communal space. Such costs are not applicable to Class C3 developments and therefor the market for land would dictate that C3 development would alwasys forward in place of C2 development as a more viable option."

What does 'Affordable Housing' mean? The reference to 30% of household income goes on housing doesn't help on its own. The article in Fareham Today said:-   'The average house price in Fareham now stands at more than £275,000* while the average wage is less than £30,000. This means a first-time buyer would need savings of £46,750 (based on a 17%** deposit) before being able to buy one of these homes. The Council now has the challenge to find more land for development in order to create housing to meet the needs of today’s young people and future generations.' I took to 30K figure and fed it into a 'Starter Home' calculator I found on the web and the maximum loan it offered was 180K. The implication is that any new home built in Fareham as 'Affordable' has to cost no more than 180K. I think we need a better definition of what 'affordable' means. I also thought that the number of considerations and ifs/buts/maybes in terms of what a developer has to provide, in terms of affordable housing, was far to large. If 20% is the golden number then 20% of all houses in a new development must be affordable..................whatever that means!

Para 5.15. I do not believe there is enough transparency in the Affordable Housing provision once the development is under way. The applications always make this a major factor yet we learn afterwards that the provision hasn`t been met. FBC should publish a list of results and highlight Developers that have not provided the proposed number. The Policy states there should be an open book policy; this should be placed in the public domain whereby costs are transparent.

This whole development plans for our area is an absolute NO NO. Our surgeries overloaded, as is schools. Traffic is a nightmare now, 740 more cars (or 1480) would cause CHAOS. Wildlife so affected by development. Emergency Services have trouble passing through traffic. The A27 is so congested now. Most housing will have 1 or 2 cars. What is classed as “Affordable”. When 1 2 bedroom showing on Right Move as £299,000. Pollution is at High Level now, can only get worse. All sites within Portchester should be REJECTED. FBC & Planning have failed to support the community. Sad that our local wildlife will be gone! Community facilities not even thought about. FBC should leave Portchester out of the mass Development Plans. Asbestos and oil pipes have been noted in the past from MOD as being buried under Cranleigh site.

You are proposing to build about 700 homes around the Portchester area. This without any thought to the impact on infrastructure = schools, roads, access to doctors etc – traffic on the A27is already awful at peak times, traffic jams all the way up to the Delme roundabout and also on Down End Road leading to the A27. Pollution in Fareham is at a high, impacting on the health of our children and elderly people especially who are weaker. Before proposing a site allocated to housing you should have a detailed plan, on what you are proposing in terms of infrastructure, ie. budget & that will be allocated. How many more doctors, teachers and school places have been budgeted for – where is the money coming from? Will the new housing developments benefit the people living in Fareham or will people from other areas flock to Fareham in which case our young people will not benefit. What happened to the Welbourne project???
