HA16 - Military Road, Wallington

Object

Over 100 dwellings are earmarked for these two sites. What proposals are there to considerably enhance and upgrade the highway access? Roads in the vicinity are well over 100 years old and little more that single carriageway, totally inadequate already.

As residents of Wallington we are concerned with the flooding problem which affects us. Also the effect of increased traffic through our village.

Being a commuter who travels out of Fareham to work each day I can safely say that the queues of traffic both inbound and outbound is horrific - At peak times it often takes 30 minutes to get from junction 11 to the Tesco roundabout. This is exacerbated by the endless queues in both directions along the M27 from Portsmouth to Southampton (and onward to the M3) at peak times and often during the day. My daily commute from Fareham to South Winchester regularly takes approx an hour each way to travel 22 miles. I have not seen anything in the supporting documentation that would be a feasible solution to this situation. The FBC council history on traffic solutions is abysmal - for example the number of time the roundabout & junctions around the station & Gudge Heath Lane areas have had to be reworked at a huge cost to the tax payer prove that the council are incompetent of providing realistic workable solution to traffic issues. The overall plan (excluding Welbourne) show around 8000 properties being added to the local area over the next 20 years. The increase in traffic issues that will bring the town and surrounding areas to a stand still and the additional pollution element is enough for me to object against the building of further housing in the local area.

traffic is very narrow roads with no passing places. Sewage problems in this area with the last houses that have been built {not known} would loose machine trees on site.

I wish to object to the above development for several reasons. 1.Military Road Access The plan indicates that access to the development will be via Military Road. Should this be correct I submit that this Road is not of sufficient width to accommodate the traffic that will need to use it. Currently it is a single track road with no pavement. I was informed by Fareham Council that they do not own the land beside the tarmacked area, which is common land. I would question the developers right to build or widen a road on common land. It is already dangerous to use this road during the day and particularly at night with the traffic that already uses it. Greater use will cause greater danger to road users. If used as assess/egress will it be lit? If so, this lighting will be of a great cost to tax payers and will not be compatible with the current thinking on the Dark Skies ideals. The road itself would funnel vehicles into Wallington village via Drift Road and because of the width of the road and parking will cause traffic problems. As you will be aware larger vehicles sometimes use Military Road and get stuck at the sharp corner with Drift Road or visa versa. Often I am aware the police have been called and the private company Boarhunt has to be called out to extract driving units and trailers. There is still damaged road surface in Drift Road (Near the footpath) which I saw such a lorry cause over a year ago. The right hand corner between Military Road and Drift Road means using Military road for access is impracticable. Should it be the intention to funnel vehicular access/egress into Pinks Hill this road is not of sufficient size to accommodate the traffic that already uses it to get to/from the industrial units at Wallington Fort plus the large amount of traffic which will be generated from the other planned developments in the area. Lighting and road safety are also reasons why this route should not be used. 2.Green Field Site Gauntlet's field is a Green Field Site and therefore should not be built on unless all other options have been exhausted. Two previous public enquiries have refused development on this site and in 2008 this was one of the principle reasons for refusal. I suggest little has changed which would change this decision. 3. Flooding During the recent flood in Wallington Village I spoke with the Environmental Officer who attended and it was his opinion that water running down the hill was one of the causes of the flood. He told me it was made worse by the industrial estate at the top of the hill which because of it's construction did not allow water to soak away. Should Gauntlets Field be built on I understand even if some soak away measures are incorporated there will be less soak away than at present and the probability of flooding Wallington will be increased. Currently during periods of rain, streams of water, (No exaduration) pour down the footway between Military Road and Pallant Gardens. The footway is not usable at these times and will only get worse. I am aware that there are numerous underground streams in Gauntlet's Field, in fact one continues under my own garden. Unless these are considered and appropriately channelled in the development of the area there is a possibility these may contribute to flooding issues in the lower village. In my opinion this channelling of natural water-flow is not practicable and a reason the build should not progress. 4. Utilities I believe there are large gas and electric pipes under Gauntlet's which may make it impracticable to build upon. I am also aware that the village does not have a sewage system that can handle any more waste and would mean that such a development is unsustainable. 5. Privacy I recognise this final point is selfish but because of the slope in Gauntlet's Field any houses built will be able to look directly into my property which affects my privacy.

I played as a child on Pinks Hill and Military Road. I picked up lots of historical artifacts from here ( since lost) I am sure when the motorway slip road was built it was through an old historic site, but in those days previous gyrotech instruments were not used & so just demolished. I would prefer to know everything possible done to see if there is anything there.

"HA16 Military Road Wallington (26 dwellings) 1. Site mainly red clay. many sub surface streams. Historical records show Fort Wallington very difficult to construct due to subsidence. (site is also on a southerly slope) 2.Many local properties have suffered subsidence in past 15-20 years (own house £100k repairs in 1999.2000-29 Drift Road) 3.Two previous public enquiries refused development due to above. 4.Military Road un-adopted and narrow. Widening difficult without encroaching on existing properties. 5.Site mainly drains via Military Road into Drift Road. Drains inadequate and regularly block with leaves and tree debris, leading to flooding of Drift Road , near river Wallington. Extra run off from development site may worsen flood risk in Wallington village itself. 6. Western end of site is a thickly wooded copse containing several mature oaks (with TPO's) and an electricity sub station. 7.No public transport, nearest A27 or Fareham bus-station 8.No pavements in either Military Road or Drift Road. 9.Avoidance of ""rat-run"" through village essential. (see end of questionnaire) Note References to ""rat-run"" through Wallington village (already very congested) refers to alternative options for vehicles to access A27 (East and West) and A32 (North & South) Vehicles must either use Pinks Hill and junction 11 of M27 (3 sets of light) then Delme roundabout (more lights), or take a 2 mile detour via Broadcut and Standard Way. Neither is likely to be used if a short cut through Wallington is allowed."

There are serious difficulties with road access leading to serious pedestrian safety issues. There are no pavements in what is essentially a country road. How would residents get to local amenities without a car? This will only add to the already serious traffic congestion in and around Wallington village, the Deme roundabout and junction 11 of the M27. With more traffic this unadopted road would be difficult to bring up to acceptable safety standards. An existing flooding risk to nearby properties would be increased by these proposals and the run off from the site would heap pressure on already inadequate sewerage facilities. This site has already been turned down twice at public enquiries. Concerns expressed included road access and geological unsuitability. What has changed since these enquiries! It has been suggested that there is an existing covenant on this preventing building on this which might need investigation.

This site has been the subject of two failed previous planning applications, why should it be considered for a third time? Nothing has changed with the proposed site that would make it anymore favourable. The ground in the field is constantly wet underfoot, caused by several underground springs. Who would want to build on such a poor foundation? Following prolonged or heavy rain the water run-off from the field is so great that the current drainage system in Military Road cannot cope. The water 'pools' at its lowest point and eventually runs over into the properties adjoining Military Road. Increased surface water drainage caused by paving over the site can only make matters worse and also contribute to an increased flood risk as it flows into the River Wallington. Military Road is narrow and unsuitable for anything larger than a 3.5t van. It is difficult to pass side-by-side unless using one of the private residential driveways. Increased traffic would increase this need, making it even more difficult for motorists. Increased housing on this site and others at Pinks Hill and Standard way will undoubtably add increased traffic flow through the already narrow and congested village streets. A number of non-residents already use Military Road/Drift Road as a cut-through rather than driving via Pinks Hill or Standard Way. There is no pavement in Military Road, making it dangerous for pedestrians negotiating it, especially at night. Increased vehicular traffic would increase the potential for a collision between vehicles and pedestrians, especially as very few motorists stick to the marked up 20mph speed limit anyway! Military Road is private and unadopted. Why? This site is one of the last open spaces of its type in Wallington. With the current vehicle emissions at a high level (and can only get higher with increased traffic), this site can provide some natural absorption of toxic NO2 and CO2 emissions. This site has been a much needed and valued open site within the Wallington Village. Please keep it that way.

Object

Any housing built on this site would have to bear the continual noise from the link road to the M27. This link road is always in use and at peak travel periods, at a standstill. Any residents living there would be subject to increased levels of harmful NO2 and CO2 particulates and gasses, posing a potential health risk. Access via Pinks Hill in its current state would cause a danger to motorists. People are reluctant to give way in either direction, making navigation difficult especially when HGV's insist on using it as a short cut to the M27, rather than travelling via Standard Way. The road is narrow and undulating with limited places for traffic to pass safely. The proposed building of 80 dwellings here will without doubt come with a number of cars residing there (80-160 at a guess!). Motorists will end up trying to short-cut through the Wallington Village, via Military Road and Drift Road, causing traffic chaos in the village, as well as contributing to increased levels of harmful particulates and other noxious gases. Access to the site could only be achieved via a new junction on an already dangerous piece of road with existing and concealed accesses. There already a large number of articulated HGV's accessing the SITA site, making the road down the hill to Standard Way a busy route. There are no footpaths and unlit, currently making it a very dangerous route for pedestrians. The road is currently set to a 60mph limit downhill into a 30mph limit. A lot of car and HGV drivers ignore this mandatory reduction in speed, which makes it even more difficult for pedestrians trying to cross on foot from the subway under the M27 at the junction with North Wallington. There are no public transport connections, making the use of motorcars a necessity. This site provides a much needed open space to absorb any harmful particulates and gasses from the already overly congested link road. Increased motor car access via Pinks Hill will also add even more congestion to the already busy Delme Roundabout and adjoining roads, which cannot cope with existing levels at peak hours. It is difficult to see what if any improvements could be made to this interchange that haven't already been made. Should any housing be built on the site marked as HA4 at Downend Road, then the volume of traffic using the A27 onto the Delme Roundabout would be at such a level as to render it gridlocked for most of the day, let alone the peak travel times.

when we brought our house in Fareham it was a lovely place to live. Countryside & coast, now we have to fight out way down country lanes ( Try Pook lane at 8.30am) down the A27 along the M27. Fareham has become a traffic nightmare we don't need all these houses. You have Whitley , Knowle and the dreaded Welborne. We keel trapped I a concrete jungle, dictated to by the volume of traffic as to when we can go out. Why should we build more & more to accommodate the millions of new comers let in by last government uncontrolled migration. Put the existing residents of Fareham just we don't need these hundreds of houses here . Ensure the houses youre building in the town centre are low cost or low rent (even Council houses)- now there's an idea.

I am most concerned about the future to housing in Military Road and Pinks Hill in Wallington. I believe this area cannot support more housing. The affect on the local environment will be catastrophic. The affect on the tree line, that Fareham Council has been do adamant to preserve will be affected by the reduction in the water table. Already trees are dying in the East Hill area and in particular Pinks Hill, the strata lends itself to major subsidence. The area around Military Road and Pinks Hill help to maintain the air in which we need to breath. Building in these places will have a devastating affect on our lives and those of our children. There is an abundance of wildlife in the vicinity that will be affected, and these things are part of our children's inheritance because Welborne has been buggered up, there is no reason to side and spoil this part of Fareham. The infrastructure of the roads certainly cannot cope with additional cars etc using the area. There are lots of alternative around the town, couch as empty sops that can be compulsory purchased and turned into housing. If the council wants to do something useful, the pull down the well understand Civic Building and build a block of flats in its place. The Council id frightening me, historically, as they are likely to mess up Fareham , again. And Fareham has a history I the last 50yrs of giving its people what they don't want. I recall the problems over the Woodlands of off Military Road, That was forced through and killed of an important Woodland and pond , and now that is an area deprived from local residents enjoying the amenities.I pass through Romsey frequently and see the area has been ruined by housing estates built without breathing space. We this to happen in Fareham.

Serious road safety issues as very busy from Broadoak existing units. Plus difficult pedestrian access via North Wallington. (No pavement for big part). More building and concrete at this point would cause more water to cottages at river edge that already have problems with flooding. Plus not much green left for existing residents.

I am very concerned about provision for pedestrians and transport infrastructure as this is already become a drag race run through the village. Lack of appropriate footpaths and crossings for proposed housing would make the area isolated and unsuitable for families or non car users. Lack of amenities for this area makes it unsuitable for housing and would not protect the historically significant village. The council has made no proposals to cater for pedestrians and housing on this site would be adding to an already congested and cramped thoroughfare through north Wallington. Access for this site is already a problem and air and noise pollution would inevitably increase as a result. The BBC has already identified this area as a disproportionately crowded borough, so any addition would further exacerbate this.

"HA16-Military Road (Gauntletts Field 1 & 2) Problems with access and geological unsuitability. Access-Military Road is an un-adopted, narrow, private country lane with no pavement- it leads onto Drift Road, which itself is narrow and in need of major re surfacing and drainage work (none of which has been carried out by HCC) Extra traffic would be catastrophic and dangerous -the ""lanes"" are used by dog walkers and riders as it is one of the more ""safe"" arrears around Wallington. Aerial views show very little green areas left around Wallington village. The remaining green areas must be left for our future generations. Land drainage on the site would be problematic due to numerous natural springs and presence of ""Blue Slipper Clay"" There hence flooding potential is high and the ""downhill"" properties (Drift Road etc.) already suffer from flooding and over used drains. Interference with anything in the local water table is therefore undesirable."

Military Road is an unadopted road, is narrow and has no pedestrian access. Development would lead to drainage problems and increase the chance of more flooding for the downhill properties. Traffic would be increased through Wallington Village adding to the already congested Wallington Shore and North Wallington Roads . Access to the A27 at the roundabout would be made more difficult than it already is.

This is a green site accessed by trendy single -track lanes with no pavements. Access to the site is from North Wallington ( narrow, crowded with parked cars) up drift road and into Military Road. The alternative is along Pink's Hill which is constructed in places, and subject to heavy traffic travelling to and from the numerous industrial sites. The geogley underline the field makes it unsuitable for development. A spring line runs through the field and there is an area of unstable blue clay and pipes run under the field, which would need re routing or protection. Development would mean that the ground would no longer absorb rain water, which would run down the steep hill into the lower areas of the village. Already subject to flooding.

"This site - like the Pinks Hill site - poses two principal problems which affect its potential users and the occupants of Wallington Village. Firstly access: for pedestrians, access to town/community facilities and public transport on foot will only be possible via a shortcut through Pallant Gardens. There are no footpaths at all on Pinks Hill or Military road. Pedestrian workers already park, cycle and motorbike through the short path ""gap"" between Pallant Gardens and Military road to get to the industrial workplaces in Fort Fareham and Fareham heights. Car access via Pinks hill only leads to the motorway. Access to other directions for commutes to employment (Fareham, Gosport, Portchester, Titchfield) must be made via the Broadcut roundabout (""Sainsburys""). This is already heavily used by industrial estate traffic (many of the businesses sustain or depend on vehicle use) and as a result is already dangerous and busy, particularly at the crossing point from the village to Sainsburys near the ""Poundstretcher"" business. Secondly flooding: the River Wallington frequently floods. The Environment Agency have spent considerable sums of money to contain the problem but it will not go away. Increased run off from sites such at these will specifically affect other local residents. In Pallant Gardens, water springs already emerge in gardens and run off into the road - and finally the river. Flooding directly affects residents and local businesses in Broadcut too. Please keep this important piece of open space free from development.This site is an important open space for Wallington Village. The road is a quiet space and combines wooded areas and open field. On a map it looks a logical choice (fill in the gaps) but it is the one of only two accessible open spaces left in the Wallington area."

We strongly oppose to the planned developments, both housing and employment. we have concerns with regarding the local infrastructure and how it would cope with the increased local & new 127 houses. In the 4yrs we have lived on Drift Road it has been dug up every yr (4 times) to repair the already overloaded water pipes. Wallington has a long history of flooding and the WVCA have worked tirelessly with the council to reduce the risk of impact of this. These plans undermine this work, as we cannot see it possible that the flooding will not worsen as a result of the planned build.

This field should not be developed as there in insufficient access. There a several springs in the field which will head to the water run off to properties below and add to the Wallington river flooding problems. It will add at least another 5 cars going through the Village via Drift Rd, which is already suffering Traffic problems. Wild life there are several spices which will suffer IE resident deer, owls, pheasant, bats, field mice, slow worms & plus several types of birds. How will local services cope IE Hospitals, doctors, schools & fire services Etc. This project will hardly effect the need for new housing it is generally a money making ave for the owners.

I cannot understand how the plan can assess this location as having good accessibility. It is on an unadopted, private road with little or no access from the village of Wallington leaving the restricted, narrow road of Pinks Hill as the main route in. There are no pavements, no bus links and access to the village and on to Fareham is problematic. It is within an area designated 'Coast and Countryside' and has had many other planning applications refused in the past as a Green Field site. There are many ecological and geological issues that make it make it further unsuitable for building; Land drainage is difficult with numerous springs in the area; blue slipper clay is present and flooding potential is high in the area, in fact, downhill properties have suffered in the past.

Pinks Hill HA8 SHLAA 1998 incorporating SHLAA 1352 Military Road HA16 SHLAA 27 SHLAA Gauntletts field North Wallington and Standard Way HA20 SHLAA 324 SHLAA Sites allocated for housing and development OBJECT Comment: Currently Wallington is a semi-rural village with a unique identity and separate to the nearby Fareham Town Centre and Portchester urban sprawl. Defining this unique community is the strip of open land and fields that constitutes the proposed development land. This open land provides a buffer to the noise and air pollution from Junction 11 and the M27 motorway and is used as an open space by residents and visitors, also providing an open green backdrop to the Wallington Conservation Area and Water Meadows. The green land holds surface water that regulates river levels during spates; protecting downhill/downstream dwellings from flooding. The houses and businesses directly adjacent to the land are unique older properties including Riverdale Cottages, Fort Wallington battlements, WW2 machine gun emplacement and pumping station/cottage. Developing the sites proposed will infill the area which defines Wallington as a separate semi-rural village, apart from the Fareham Town Centre and Portchester urban areas. Developing this land will cause Wallington to become part of a homogeneous urban sprawl intersected by the trunk roads and motorway but without clear definition. This will destroy the rural boundary of Wallington and the village will lose its identity and sense of community. Development will cause the loss of open space enjoyed by villagers and visitors and will have an adverse affect on residents' wellbeing. By its magnitude and elevated location on the hill slopes, the development will have an overbearing and intrusive impact on the existing homes and businesses on the northern edge of the village and will have a detrimental effect on views and privacy. The character of the village and especially the local/adjacent neighbourhood will be negatively impacted by this out-of-scale proposed development. All other houses in the vicinity are individual or small clusters of unique cottages. The proposed development will intrude on the adjacent conservation area/water meadow views and this special amenity will be affectively lost to residents and visitors. The area of proposed development is trapped between existing dwellings and the motorway; construction and access will negatively impact the lives of neighbouring residents. Construction will add unbearable levels of disruption, noise and pollution. The already busy narrow local roads of North Wallington, Military Road and Pinks Hill will become highly congested and the small amount of on-road parking will become oversubscribed – many of the older existing properties do not have the option to create off road parking. There is not the local roads, pavements and infrastructure to support the construction stage of the development, nor is there the option/space to develop the infrastructure to accommodate construction. The construction site will cause surface water to flow down the hill towards the river Wallington and increase the risk of local flooding to existing homes. The developments if built will be adversely affected by motorway noise and air pollution. Development will cause the loss of the strip of 'green lung' that helps protect local residents from the impact of motorway noise and air pollution. The already congested roads of North Wallington, Military Road and Pinks Hill will not be able to support the additional traffic caused by the new dwellings. Current on-road parking adjacent to the North Wallington/Pinks Hill horse field will be lost. Lorries and traffic from the Standard Way industrial estates will create an unacceptable risk to the new residents. The development will cause surface water to wash directly towards the river and existing homes, increasing flooding.

b) MILITARY ROAD (GAUNTLETT'S FIELD) (HA 16) – 26 houses • It is understood that a Legal Covenant applies to this Site, which prevents the building of houses for 10 years. Were this to prove the case, then clearly the Site is "Non – Deliverable" (SHLAA para 3.17 refers) and it ought be removed immediately, from the Local Plan. • Military Road is a narrow and Private Road (owned by FBC) without any pavements; it provides a "single track" access to Drift Road, which is similarly narrow and is also without pavements. • There is significant Planning history/precedent associated with the Site, which has been the subject of 2 Public Inquiry's over the years, both of which resulted in Development being refused. Nothing has changed to alter those judgements. • The SHLAA recognizes that the site has significant ecological benefit and the need for protective measures. It goes on to say, that Drift Rd is unsuitable for providing any access to/from the proposed site; I would entirely endorse that view. • A number of natural springs exist on the site, which have in recent years caused flooding to local properties and indeed the land has several geological complications. In addition to the randomly appearing natural springs, there are pockets of "Blue Slipper Clay"; a further indication as to the sites unsuitability I would suggest. • In summary, this is a small piece of "Open Space" that is cherished by Village Residents, which we are not prepared to loose in order to satisfy an ill- conceived and grossly inflated PUSH derived housing requirement.

This site is classified as green field and was awarded coast and countryside in Eastern Wards plan in 1988. Our main objection to this site is the flooding . There has been serious flooding in the past and out garden in Pallant Gardens is almost always boggy from the underground springs coming from the springs coming from the field. After rainfull it is very wet and we know that the double garage [redacted] has had to be underpinned for this reason. If you walk along the lower level of Pallant Gardens after rain, you will see the stream flow from the rear of our houses across the road to the houses there. If houses are built in Gauntlett field there is bound to be more run off making the situation worse, no matter what conditions are proposed in planning there is also a spring running down the centre of the road in front of our house as reported by the water company when sorting out blockages etc. We understand that there is actually a soak away Gauntletts Field which speaks for itself. WE all know that climate change is going to make our climate wetter, has this factor been taken into account ? also it is well known that the area has blur slipper clay present. Military Road is a narrow country lane with notices stating that it is Private Road under the highways Act. It could not be adopted when released from MOD many yrs ago, so what is different now? It is one of the few natural spaces left in Fareham which according to government figures is 38% built up already ( UK average 6%) with only 5% being natural (UK average 35%). Even if the entrance to the site is design to mimimise disruption it will still have a serve effect on this pretty lane anf the surrounding exisiting houses. We understand the need for houses but with the Welborne development coming just across the motorway , is the construction of 26 houses delicate site a sensible option?

PO16

The proposal to build on this site is, in my view, ill-conceived for the following reasons: the site provides valuable soakage during spells of heavy rainfall, which despite this soakage, still causes large volumes of water to flow down Drift Road (towards an area that has seen flooding in the not too distant past) and to collect in Military Road; the increase in traffic will most likely cause even greater congestion at the M27/A27 intersection and the small winding roads around the village will be unable to support the inevitable increase in cars seeking to use alternative routes into and out of Wallington; Wallington has seen a number of new developments in recent years to suggest that it has borne its fair share of FBC's perceived burden; are FBC intent on 'starving' the area of its last few remaining areas of green space? Finally, I recall that local politicians have previously suggested that part of the rationale for developing Welborne was to alleviate the pressures on local green and brown sites; our council is elected to represent the interests of its residents and should be doing all they can to resist Government pressure to further develop what is clearly an already overdeveloped area already, as the regular bouts of congestion seen on both the M27 and A27 will attest to.

Rainfall and springs already cause large flows of water down hill towards properties in Wallington with subsidence in some properties caused by the underlying springs. Further development will increase the severity of water runoff and make it more likely for properties to flood.

A. Housing on the site will change the nature of the area completely , for little housing gain, it will end a necessary buffer between our existing housing area and our employment ( industrial units in Fort Wallington and beyond) area.This site was designated as coast and countryside in the Eastern Wards Plan 1988 and it states as a Greenfield site in the deliberation of the 2008 Local Development Framework. It represents our unacceptable loss of open space. B. Building will necessitate the immediate spending of council tax money to make Military Road a public highway. At present this road is narrow, without a pavement and unadopted.It will create a noisy roadway especially in its completion and beyond. C. Building will add to the still not approved infrastructure improvements deemed necessary by the Welbourne development which will impact on the Wallington area and the Delme roundabout. In this field there is a problematical land drainage situation caused by number of springs in our area of Blue Slipper Clay. Flooding potential is high and interference with the local water table is undesirable. D. The SHLAA acknowledges the ecological significance of this site.

This area has historic problem of subsidence and water cascading down DRIFT Rd from the wateral springs . This development, potentially, would have a serious impact on houses down Drift Rd and below Military Rd/Drift Rd. Military Rd simply do not have room for pavements and cycle paths, and to make entry one way only would cause huge problems for services vehicles and residents alike. I strongly subject to this proposal based on the above and the huge impact on area because of access and increased traffic.

Wallington village, the river and the existing industrial / commercial sites of Standard Way and Fort Wallington reside at the last leg of the Wallington Basin, through which vast quantities of water can flow after short periods of heavy rain. So any proposal to build on the open fields in the latter part of the Wallington Basin, where this plot resides, will have a highly negative impact on the flood risk to the Wallington village environs. Essentially, the balance of flood risk hangs delicately in the area, meaning that the plans for Welborne will be effected: 1. Any building work in Wallington will have to be factored into the anti-flood measures and other data for the proposed building of Welborne, which will surely further delay the beginning building of in Welborne. Locals will be given a route to make a valid objection regarding the effects of Welborne upon the latter part of the Wallington Basin. 2. Any building work in Wallington will also undermine all of the work done by the Environment Agency, as they will have to re-calculate all of the data concerning the levels of flood protection offered by various kinds of work, meaning that all planning will have to be resumed from the start again. December 2012 was a period of heavy rainfall where the river came to within just a few centimeters of the top of the flood defence walls (See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-20803312/flooding-wallington-river-levels-prompt-emergency-evacuation). May 2013 also had high water which did not make the headlines because it occurred in the middle of the night. Continued building on the Wallington Basin tips the balance in favour of water flowing into the river ever more quickly, making the risk of flood far higher. This means that it would be unreasonable act of incredible folly and ignorance to build upon the open land in Wallington, as this resembles a fraction of the soak away which previously existed in the area. At what point does local government stop heeding the interests of the local populace? Will those who might accept these building proposals be around to answer the critics if the Wallington area floods in future? Or the directors of the building companies? I very much doubt it. Yet those who live here will have to live with any ill-fated and unwise decisions that they make.

Gauntlets Field has one access from Drift Road and Pinks Hill. The problems casued in Drift Road through drainage is really bad, the water co is forever there working. Heavy traffic take the exit from the motorway in error and several lorries have caused problems. There are no pavements along Military Road / Drift Road which would have exit the traffic. More housing = more traffic and pollution.

Wallington – the jewel in Fareham's crown, living and being associated with the village for over 50 years, I have seen the village and life slowly eroded by new housing developments with no far seeing thought into the future, I appreciate the need for housing, isn't Welbourne enough. Traffic through the village is at a premium with no thought for speed (even the locals), the run off down Pinks Hill after the development causing traffic problems. More traffic through the village roundabout Hotel roundabout problems. This village was here before Fareham, you have erased it away over the years. Wallington Way, before public protests there other routes that planners had put through with the motorway build, this area was water meadows for the village. Sainsbury, Poundland developments Grade II listed properties removed, money certainly talks, again water meadows for the village. Clifton Yard Brewery Brickworks developments more added congestion for the village with Shez Box houses. Fareham as a whole seems intent on making the move towards 'Solent City' a reality. Many of us believed this 40 years ago, what a reality this has become, for once say NO we don't want it. Respect and understand what Fareham has and regard it as FAREHAM'S JEWEL IN THE CROWN.

Gauntletts Field I think the underlying geology is unsuitable. It does not seem very sound to build on an area of Blue Slipper clay along with the pressure of numerous springs.

I wish to object on 2 grounds. Firstly increased risk of flooding of the river Wallington as a result of devolopment . Houses on Wallington Shore Rd and North Wallington would be at increased risk of flood. The Environment Agency has already said, in respect of development at Welbourne, that there must be NO additional run off into the river Wallington. This applies to the land above the river in the village as well. Increased roofing, hard standing and road surface will speed water down which is currently held and released slowly from the green space now threatened for development Secondly: Wallington Shore Rd and NorthWallington are school routes for Uplands and Cams Schools cycling. Children and less agile adult pedestrians have to cross to access the town and shopping as well. Increased traffic here and on Pinks Hill Standard Way will make this far more dangerous and add to the congestion already at the foot of Drift Rd. The M27 underpass at North Wallington is a fairly safe cycling route,[compared to the other available options}very well used, out to the countryside. The .proposals will add to traffic and make this less safe.

The additional run off from this proposed housing can only exacerbate the already critical state of flooding potential in Wallington village. The Environment Agency has plans at an advanced stage which are designed to help cope with the existing flood threat. There are no funds available to significantly improve flood defences so we must be extremely vigilant to ensure that no additional run off is allowed to enter the water course. The sewers through the village were considered to be at full capacity.before a dozen or so homes were built on the site of Clifton's Yard. Raw sewage is already discharged into the roads when the River Wallington is in full spate. As an advisor to The Environment Agency's Wallington Flood Defence Improvement Scheme I must object to these building proposals.

As the home owner of [redacted] directly overlooking Gauntlett's Field I wish to object VERY STRONGLY to the FBC plan for developing this area for potential new housing. Please see my objections to the planning proposal; There would be a negative impact on the wildlife which is frequently inhabited by foxes and occasionally deer. Military Road is a very narrow road without any pavements which with increased pedestrian footfall and more cars will be significantly more hazardous (26 dwellings could potentially equate to 50 plus cars) Military Road is unadopted and therefore a private road – we have had numerous incidents over the years with unsuitable lorries getting stuck when travelling down the road. The land drainage is not good often creating large puddles throughout the winter months that do not drain away easily in both Gauntlett's field and Military Road. There would need to be a SIGNIFICANT upgrade for the sewage capacity for 26 homes. The field was previously owned by the MOD and when I moved in 12 years ago the area was commented on in my land search as potentially having wartime debris buried under the ground in Gauntlett's field as it is a former area of military land. The 10 year legal covenant on Gauntlett's field which prevents houses being built for 10 years would need investigating. On a personal level; I believe it would also negatively impact on local house prices within Military Road as the private, very quiet non overlooked location was a HUGE factor in buying my property. After consulting with other local house owners on Military Road I also believe it would have a negative impact on the residents well being.

The following factors make this site unsuitable for development: Problematical water drainage, I own an adjacent property and natural springs appear on both mine and other properties. Local habitat with owls, bats and deer in the field. Road access is by narrow 'private roads' which would not safely accommodate significant additional traffic. Green separation area between residential and industrial sites will be lost. I support the Welbourne development and question if that could be expanded to meet the additional housing need?

In order to prepare this site for development it would mean the destruction of hedgerows and trees, some of which are very mature. Along with this environment, would go the habitat for wild life, not least, woodpeckers, owls and our once abundant but now depleted native birds and butterflies. Also traffic pollution and volume would increase on roads already inadequate. We must keep our green spaces in order to counteract pollution in all its forms.

Gauntletts Field, as it is known, is designated as Coast and Countryside, in 1988, with earlier applications for development refused, on the ground of green field site. Military Road is narrow, single lane, with no pedestrian footpath and a Private Road . Development at this point on the hill above Wallington village will lead to additional hard surface run-off, which will inevitably need to be directed towards the river which is already subject to flood protection measures. There is also some ecological significance, not least as a wildlife corridor within the village.

Access and Traffic Drivers other than those wanting to join the motorway are likely to go down Drift Road rather than right round Standard Way. Drift Road is mostly narrow and has blind bends. There is no pavement. The 20mph speed limit is frequently ignored. The road is already hazardous to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. An additional 26 houses represents a potential increase in the volume of traffic of about 65%, exacerbating the danger as well as increasing the volume of traffic along North Wallington and Wallington Shore Road. Land Quality The instability of the land at the top of the hill in Wallington is well known to those who live there, as are the vagaries of the water run off, both above ground and below. In episodes of heavy or prolonged rain flooding can occur in Military Road. If Gauntletts field is built on its water retention effect would be lost. I would urge that a comprehensive hydrological and geological survey be carried out. Potential house buyers should be warned of the risks. Access/Traffice Unless they wish to join the motorway link road, drivers leaving the area are likely to go along Military Road and down Drift Road. Drift Road narrows and has blind bends. There is no pavement. The 20mph speed limit is often ignored. It is already hazardous for all road users. This development would further increase the danger. Noise Despite the screening from vegetation, the noise from motorway traffic is very noticeable in many parts of Wallington. At such close proximity to the link road the noise would be overwhelming. I suggest therefore that this site is unsuitable for residential use.

I would only want housing on this plot if it was to the same standard/cost/visual appeal as these already in the area. Housing estates are not pleasing on the eye. Nature is being reduced.

Due to traffic already having difficulties in leaving the village by the Delme roundabout a very high percentage of villagers and pub visitors leave by the North Wallington/Standard Way junction. Coupled with vehicles from both Standard Insurance Industrial site and the Fort Wallington Site this has become a very busy and at times quite testing junction. By its very isolated situation anyone living on the proposed site would need transport thereby increasing the flow of traffic and exacerbating the already difficult problem of parking. Surely the Wallington Village has already got more than its fair share of offices and industrial premises. We are almost completely surrounded by them. To leave the village during 'rush hour' is already a problem with most roads gridlocked. To add to the problem is insane. It seems sites are appraised in isolation with no regard to the village to which they are to adjoin. If you take away these few remaining buffer zones then the Wallington Village is in danger of losing its identity and will become another charmless addition to the Fareham conurbation.

Not a good idea for more employment premises, its right on a hill on a bend – opposite an already sited industrial/office space. Traffic consistently speeds up this hill so introducing more vehicles is nuts – an accident waiting to happen. Also access to and from this area is limited and already overused for the type of road. Pinks Hill leading up to it is very dangerous already and once again I have seen accidents here and many near misses, joining the dual carriageway at bottom of Pinks Hill is also inadequate. Coming from the other direction past Sainsburys is also overloaded at present. The whole of Wallington is NOT designed for cars and is currently at breaking point without adding more. A most ridiculous area to consider for housing. The road is already a nightmare with big industrial lorries speeding up and down the hill. It is ludicrous to even contemplate bringing more cars in and out of Wallington. I've lived here 20 years and seen many incidents involving cars in Drift Road. The wall outside our house was demolished when a car collided with it and there have been numerous occasions when big lorries have become stuck in Drift Road and police have been called to assist them backing up all the way. Military Road is not designed for cars and indeed I have known several accidents on the bend including one involving my daughter. There are no pavements here so even walking is dangerous and its only one lane wide. It is just mental to think the road from Military Road/Drift Road can accommodate more vehicles. Once again totally stupid plan to place houses on this junction. The road into Wallington cannot cope with the cars currently using in and there are often case of road rage here on this junction when residents by the river have to leave their cars parked to the side of the road and two directions of traffic also have to use the road and again – no pavements for dog walkers or pedestrians. Wallington cant cope with the number of cars at the moment without adding more. Access in and out of the village is already very dangerous with all the cars that park in front of the cottages facing river which only allows one direction of traffic – not two! The road is also prone to flooding during winter and high tides. Standard Way is currently a nightmare during the week when the burger man parks his van and then that whole side of the road is choccablock with big lorries and again the road is only big enough for one direction of traffic – I've seen many near misses on this road from the corner in question up to Loc'N'store, so only an idiot would encourage more people and more cars.

Location is not suitable for pedestrians, in an area that already is finding it difficult to cope with traffic, noise. Pollution levels must be a concern. Unsuitable site, implication of flooding due to numerous springs. Roads narrow, have no pavements and already have enough vehicles transitting through, both Pinks Hill and Military Road and indeed the whole Wallington village. Pinks Hill and Standard Way are used by heavy lorries and commuters to M27, the junction at North Wallington and Standard Way is already overloaded. North Wallington is being used as a car park for those working in Fareham or Industrial Park. Pedestrian safety has to be considered, also on noise and air pollution. Anymore development around the village will have detrimental effects on safety of pedestrians, pollution levels would be exacerpated in an area that already has a waste transfer station.

The site is full of springs and water runs off in wet weather. A few years ago, after rain a small stream ran down the hill, through the garage of [redacted], then down to the Shore Road causing flooding.

Our village of Wallington is already sandwiched between a large industrial estate and the motorway. Gauntlett's field is one of only a small amount of green land, much needed to counter noise and pollution of the surrounding Motorway and Industrial units. There are not many green spaces left in Wallington, which has been encroached upon over the past 60 years with industrial and road development. I should know, as generations of my family have lived in Wallington for well over 100 years. Pollution is of massive concern. More houses, industrial units and more traffic replacing one of our only green buffer zones is totally unacceptable. Also, to add residential housing to Military Road which is small, winding, and non-pavemente, this makes it extremely unsuitable in terms of access and an increase in traffic. Consequently, obvious concerns are also raised over the safety of this proposal. There is historic issues on this site of problematical land drainage, caused by numerous springs that are present, in addition to Blue Slipper Clay. Thus, flooding potential is high, and downhill properties have already experienced this! Any meddling with the local water table could cause serious issues, and could yield extremely undesirable outcomes. In addition, Wallington already has reached a capacity for traffic through the village. The narrow roads are already at capacity in terms of traffic and parked cars. More residential or/and industrial development will only compound an existing problem.

I am extremely concerned with the proposals for the area cited in HA16. Firstly, it is a green field site, and therefore should be protected by the council, not placed in a vulnerable position. As a resident of Drift Road, we also moved to the area specifically because of its 'green' and rural environment, and we wanted to bring up our young family in such a location. For that to be put under threat is really very sad. I think the character of Wallington village would also be under threat as a result. Would it be a village any more when we take away the green surroundings and basically transform it in to another town? I would have thought Fareham Borough Council would have wanted to preserve the characteristics of its village, rather than destroy it by cramming more people in. I am also concerned about the access to this proposed site, as already the infrastructure within this area is at capacity I believe. For example, Drift Road has no pavement, and surely, traffic would increase with housing being added to the fields in this plan. Military Road has no pavement either. For traffic to increase on both roads without there being pavement I think would put local residents at risk. Would more street lighting have to be put in on Military Road as a result? And how would that affect local wildlife? I am also worried about anything that might impact the water table within the village, as it has flooded in the past. If we increase the amount of concrete within the village, and the amount of water being consumed, then surely we increase our flood risk?

Military road is a Green Field site and has been refused development permission in 2008. This was due to road access, highway rights and geological instability. Military road is an unadopted road which could not be conventionally adopted due to its history with MOD ownership. It is a narrow road, where in parts only one car can pass at a time. There is no pedestrian access, and addition of dwellings causing an increase in traffic would make pedestrian access hazardous. The SHLAA acknowledges that Drift Road, the main road that pedestrians would use to access Military road to and from Fareham town, is substandard and would not provide adequate access to and from the site. Furthermore, we understand that current dwellings on military road have been made aware during searches, that unexploded devices may be present on the land on military road due to its history. I strongly object that this site is suitable for housing development.

Miilitary road is narrow, it has no pavment and it is unadopted-indeed both this and Pink Hill have roadside notices indicating their peculiar status as private roads. Neither could be conventionally adopted following their release from MOD owner ship many yrs ago.

Flooding potential is high and downhill properties have already experienced it. Interference with anything in the local water table is underirable.

The council has to balance competing and at times conflicting priorities. Demands on land use and air quality must be correctly understood if the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment is to successfully meet the needs of the local communities. Given the Borough's current air quality and pollution issues, it is surprising that the 'Fareham Local Plan 2036 – Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment' make very little reference to air quality and the pollution experienced along the A32. Indeed, the word pollution does not seem to appear at all. A number of the sites within SHLAA provide an important 'pollution sink' to absorb emissions and exhaust particulates created by traffic using the M27 and the A32 where it joins at junction 11. Both these roads are of course subject to regular and significant daily congestion. Any decisions the Council makes with regard to land use for housing or other development must take such environmental concerns into full consideration. Pollution, and its direct link to health, must be treated as an overriding priority. Whilst current government policy may be seeking to encourage business and private individuals to move to lower polluting vehicles, it is very unlikely that any significant change in the type and volume of vehicles using the M27 and A32 will occur in the next 10 years at least. The way that individuals fund their vehicles (e.g.PCP), coupled with strong likelihood of interest rate and cost of living increases will mean that, rather than being replaced, the expectation is that current vehicle stock is likely to remain in use for many years to come. The council's strategy for limiting air pollution from the M27 and A32 must therefore be based on a realistic assessment of vehicle use over the next 10 – 15 years rather than simply a hope that electric vehicles and/ or other transport policy may reduce the volume of traffic and pollution. Indeed, the Highways Agency's plan recognise that traffic along the M27 corridor is expected to increase. Any expectations to the contrary is at best naïve. The land around Wallington provides a number of important environmental benefits and protections to the Fareham area. Some of these are recognised within the SHLAA (e.g bats and other animals). However, with respect to SHLAA 27 there are two important aspects which appear to have been missed: 1. The tree's, grasses and other vegetation provides an important pollution sink. Recent research from various organisations around the world are demonstrating how such environments do provide successful capture of pollutants and are therefore beneficial in any air quality and public health strategy. In the case of SHLAA 27 these trees and plants provide a critical level of protection to the north of Fareham around the M27 and A32. 2. Whilst the area in question is not classed as a flood plain in its own right, the nature of the land provides important soakaways for rain water and flood protection. There are also a number of springs. Building ('tarmac-ing over') Generally, reduces natural run off and soak areas, disturbs the flow under surface water around the springs and therefore in the case of SHLAA 27 will increase the risk of flooding lower in the Wallington Village. The drainage around Drift Road is already inadequate and unable to cope with the increasingly frequent heavy downpours. Equally importunately, the geology of the area also means that any change in the drainage is likely to increase the chances of subsidence for properties around. In considering this site for development the Council must undertake a full, professional and comprehensive study of the various aquifers, springs and water tables and geology around SHLAA 27 to satisfy residents of the surrounding area that there would be no detriment to properties (both flood and subsidence risk). In deciding priorities and policies for land development the Council needs to properly assess how best to use the environment to provide protection for the surrounding area. At minimum, the Council must ensure that a significant amount of tree and vegetation remains both during and following any developments to provide the necessary pollution protection for areas south of the M27. Protection of the SHLAA 27 area will contribute to that.

The current status of the road is insufficient for the volume of traffic that is using it at the moment. An increase in housing would, in the long term, obviously increase traffic. There is no pedestrian access and as any development would be for families this would be a major concern. Also access for emergency vehicles is difficult enough now, an increase in housing would lead to an increase in demand for these services. Firthermore,the road is not wide enough to allow the large lorries needed for development of this site. In a more general sense Wallington, albeit a part of Fareham, has a distinct village identity.

The local springs and glue rich clay are a real problem and there is flooding potential. Military Road has been impassable when flooded. Our property suffered from subsidence due to the glue rich clay moving and had to be underpinned. The clay is still moving and further cracks have appeared in our walls. The land never dries out because of the springs flowing not far under the gardens, water comes out of cracks in the front drives of ours and our neighbor's house. Military Road is very narrow and there is a problem if two cars meet or if pedestrians use the road. Gauntlet's field really is quite unsuitable for housing development.

Drift Road & Military Road aspects enable Wallington to maintain a country environment. Building in Gauntlets Field will affect the water table. Trees are already dying south of the field and the Council was adamant that a tree line be maintained in Wallington. Pinks Hill is likely to invoke subsidence because of the clay soil and likely to affect the motorway slip road which Standard Way is already well used by heavy industrial traffic making either side of the road an awful place to reside. Fareham Council allowed "The Woodlands" development against harsh criticism. As such this development has denied people access to an important wildlife habitat.

• This green field site, also designated Coast and Countryside in the Eastern Wards Plan of 1988, is one of the few such open spaces left in Wallington and it provides an important green buffer zone between the established residential areas and the employment / industrial units in Fort Wallington. To lose it to housing would be an unacceptable loss of open space and 'green lung' in this already built up area. • Road access to the site is poor. It is bounded by an un-adopted 'private road' which is narrow with no pavements or gutters. It is totally unsuitable to accommodate an increase in traffic from building works vehicles and then house occupants and their service needs. • There is a problematic land drainage issue on the site caused by numerous springs and the presence of an area of Blue Slipper clay. There is high potential for flooding and properties downhill in Pallant Gardens experience considerable run off streams in wet weather. Building on the site is likely to interfere with the water table and exacerbate the problem. • The SHLAA acknowledges the ecological significance of the site and the need for protective measures. • Development of this site would increase noise and airborne pollution not only in the immediate vicinity but also on wards towards and at the Delme Roundabout. • The Welborne development was secured on the promise that it would remove the need for infill housing development in Fareham. It would be good to see the projected 26 dwellings on the Military Road site absorbed into a revised plan for Welborne.

Southern Water is the statutory wastewater undertaker in Wallington. Housing Allocation HA16 allocates 26 dwellings at Military Road. In line with paragraph 162 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG), we have undertaken an assessment of our infrastructure and its ability to meet the forecast demand for the proposed development. That assessment reveals that there is underground wastewater infrastructure that needs to be taken into account when designing the proposed development. An easement would be required, which may affect the site layout or require diversion. This easement should be clear of all proposed buildings and substantial tree planting. Accordingly we propose that the following criterion is added to policy HA16 (new text underlined): Planning permission will be granted provided that detailed proposals accord with the policies in the Local Plan and meet the following site specific requirements: [...] m) Provide future access to the existing underground wastewater infrastructure for maintenance and upsizing purposes.

Military road is unadopted, narrow and no pavement access. For vehicles is not easy and pedestrians have to use the road. The actual site is well known for many springs, building will cause flooding issues. And this is another green field site.

Road access problematical with serious pedestrian safety issues. Major problems could arise because of unstable geology and presence of springs this would increase flooding risk to nearby properties as a part of my property is subterranean and has flooded on occasion this is very big concern or mine. Military road is a private single-track road I don't think it could handle the increase in traffic safely.

The soil on this site and its general wetness would make it problematical to build on and, if it were, then the flood risk to properties below it would be high. Furthermore, access to the site would be difficult both during and building works and afterwards because Pinks Hill and Military road are private, steep, mostly single-track roads and Pinks Hill is regularly used by heavy vehicles from Fort Wallington and the Standard Way industrial areas. Also, there is no public transport within a reasonable walking distance.

My concerns are loss of green space separating residential and industrial areas. Local wildlife occupy the proposed area including roe deer, owls, bats. Additional noise and air pollution, caused by traffic. Risk of change to natural water springs could cause flooding. This is one of 4 proposed sites for Wallington which will change its village character. We support the development of Welbourne on the basis that the green space within Fareham are protected. I would prefer to see Welbourne extended to meet the additional housing need.

Military Road is un-adopted and extremely narrow which already causes frustration and anxiety for motorists. This is exasperating for pedestrians also as there is no pavement. This also applies to Drift Road which would be greatly affected should this land be developed. Land drainage has been an issue for properties below this site level and further housing would certainly increase flooding risk.

a major responsibility of any council is to promote health and safety and quality of life of its residents. The residents of Wallington are already subjected to unacceptable levels of noise pollution from M27 and is also part of the disproportionately crowded Fareham (see recent BBC report). There are very few green areas remaining in Wallington. It is disappointing therefore to see that the update in January 2014 Housing Targets report is now overridden i.e. Gauntlets Field - site is situated outside the defined urban settlement boundary. Site is green field. Ditto for 0322 Pinks Hill and 0324 North Wallington, Standard Way. What is the reason for this? Councillor Trevor Cartwright, executive member of health confirmed to me that DEFRA's desk top study has alleged that there are illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide between the top of the A32 and Junction 11 of the M27. FBC has been instructed by the Government to address the matter and FBC are installing 19 cameras at a cost of £94,000 in the area of Junction 11 to carry out feasibility study and report by March 2018. It seems therefore that no decision on infilling in Wallington can be made until at least the study is concluded and considered, as the problem, added to the noise pollution generally for M27, is not conducive to the good health and wellbeing of the residents in Wallington. The result is likely to be marginal either way and could be adversely affected by the additional traffic generated by Welbourne. I leave others to make very valid points about the remaining greenfield sites, now under threat, for absorbing apparently illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide, particulates, and other emissions, and problems of drainage and access which surely must be considered before proceeding with the allocation of additional housing development in Wallington. The point about pollution appears to have been ignored in the Fareham Local Plan 2036 Strategic Housing Land availability.

Wallington cannot cope with potentially more traffic coming down Drift Road passing vehicles already a problem as single lane and difficult turn at end when it rains muddy clay soil deposits flood down the road and block drains. Lorry regularly attends to pump the drain. Military Road no pavement, un-adopted single track road, poor lighting, unable to pass cars.

PO16


Object

Limited access by un-adopted narrow roads without pavements. Previous research has shown that building on this site will cause flooding problems to neighboring properties. More strain on local infrastructure. Site not suitable for low cost housing.

PO16


Object

There is no public transport within Wallington and local facilities are extremely difficult to access my foot. This means significant increase in private transport/traffic problems/pollution. It is known that this site has had a high risk of flooding to nearby properties. This is unacceptable, without taking into account the already acknowledged sewerage problems and capacity.

Whilst it is appreciated the Council is required by Central Government to produce a Local Plan 2036 identifying possible sites for development the following should be considered and resolved before submission. Traffic and pedestrian access The existing roads are narrow and many do not provide safe pavements for pedestrians and traffic is further restricted by parked cars. Access onto the Delme Roundabout from Wallington Shore Road is currently difficult and with the development of the Welbourne site traffic will increase. The location of schools relative to the proposed sites will cause children to use substandard roads and pavements and will be a safety hazard. Water and Sewage In the past few years rain water discharge from Gauntlet's Field has caused problems for property further down the hill and any development may increase this danger. When the Clifton Mews development was considered the existing sewage appeared to have insufficient capacity and any further increase in house numbers could cause major problems. If the proposed developments are allowed their effect on water discharge into the river Wallington should be investigated.

Currently Wallington is a semi-rural village with a unique identity and separate to the nearby Fareham Town Centre and Portchester urban sprawl. Defining the unique community is to strip of open land and fields that constitutes the proposed development land. This open land provides a buffer to the noise and air pollution from Junction 11 and M27 motorway and is used as an open space by reisdents and visitors, also providing an open green backdrop to the Wallington Conservation area and water meadows. The green land holds surface water that regulates river levels during spates; protecting downhill/downstream dwellings from flooding. The houses and businesses directly adjacent to the land are unique older properties including Riverdale Cottages, Fort Wallington battlements, WW2 machine gun emplacement and pumping station/cottage. Developing the sites proposed will infill the area which defines Wallington as a separate semi-rural village, apart from Fareham Town Centre and Portchester urban areas. Developing this land will cause Wallington to become part of a homogeneous urban sprawl intersected by the trunk roads and motorway but without clear definition. This will destroy the rural boundary of Wallington and the village will lose its identity and sense of community. Development will cause the loss of open space enjoyed by villagers and visitors and will have an adverse affect on residents' wellbeing. By its magnitude and elevated location on the hill slopes, the development will have an overbearing and intrusive impact on the existing homes an businesses on the northern edge of the village and will have a detrimental effect on views and privacy. By its magnitude and elevated location on the hill slopes, the development will have an adverse affect on the existing homes and and businesses on the northern edge of the village and will have a detrimental effect on views and privacy. The character of the village and especially the local/adjacent neighbourhood will be negatively impacted by this out-of-scale proposed development. All other houses in the vicinity are individual or small clusters of unique cottages. The proposed development will intrude on the adjacent conservation area/water meadow views and this special amenity will be affectively lost to residents and visitors. The area of proposed development is trapped between existing dwellings and the motorway; construction and access will negatively impact the lives of neighboring residents. Construction will add unbearable levels of disruption, noise and pollution. The already busy narrow local roads of North Wallington, Military Road and Pinks Hill will become highly congested and the small amount of on-road parking will become over-subscribed - many of the older existing properties do not have the option to create off road parking. There is not the local roads, pavements and infrastructure to support the construction stage of the development, not is there the option/space to develop the infrastructure to accommodate construction. The construction site will cause surface water to flow down the hill towards the river Wallington and increase the risk of local flooding of existing homes. The developments if built will be adversely affected by motorway noise and air pollution. Development will cause the loss of the strip of 'green lung' that helps protect local residents from the impact of motorway noise and air pollution. The already congested roads of North Wallington, Military Road and Pinks Hill will not be able to support the additional traffic caused by the new dwellings. Current on-road parking adjacent to the North Wallington/Pinks hill horse field will be lost. Lorries and traffic from the Standard Way industrial estate will create an unacceptable risk to the new residents. The development will cause surface water to wash directly towards the river and existing homes, increasing flooding.

In 1962 the residents in Drift Road were endangered by the then new owner of Fort Wallington who commenced to dynamite his property. The residents had to obtain a barrister from London to stop his antics before someone was killed. I consider that many of the problems experienced since then were caused by this activity. The original home built by [redacted] was many years later needing very expensive under-pinning. Blue slipper clay and hidden springs, no safe walking areas and more houses in this area would certainly undermine an already adequate sewerage system as has tapered since the town houses were built in Delme Drive.

The site is on an area of unstable geology. See ref to 'Sudder Clay Problems' encountered when Fort Wallington was built increasing its cost, see 'the royal institute of archeology', publication 1977 (page 32). Military Road is constantly flooded as heavy rainfall - bad drainage, inadequate road system - no pavements, danger to pedestrians. Vehicle movement would be difficult and dangerous in narrow road. Surface water drainage to river now a major problem. river is not adequate now. Sewage disposal problems already exist in Clifton's Yard - how was the problem resolved? Disposal problem at Drift Road property which has manifested since the housing development recently in Delme Drive. The increase in housing with a considerable increase in population requiring facilities and services. No mention has been made regarding medical facilities and services which the existing Fareham Centre Practice are unable to cater for additional patients. With an increase in population age these facilities should be an early consideration - not left to the end of development.

Military Road is a private road, it is very narrow and has no pavement. It is difficult to see how the authority could guarantee safe access for either vehicles or pedestrians. These proposals would also increase the acknowledged flood risk to nearby dwellings. There is no accessible public transport nearby.

Military Road is very narrow, has no pavement and is unadopted. It is accessed by other very narrow road with no pavements. Larger volume of traffic would make Drift Road unsafe for pedestrians. Pinks Hill and Standard Way both carry heavy lorries and fast moving commute vehicles accessing the M27 and are unsafe for pedestrians. There is land drainage problems caused by springs and an area of 'blue slipper clay'. Properties have already experienced flooding down hill off this site and the problem would be exacerbated if the site is built on. Residential parking in Wallington is at a premium already, additional residences will add further to this problem.

And development will spoil the amenity value of the area. The field acts as a buffer between Fort Wallington and the residential area. The road and pedestrian access would be inadequate and any 'improvements' would spoil the character of the area.

Natural springs in the field already cause problems with the volume of water that comes through the gardens and footpath from military road to pallant gardens where it runs like a river. The volume of building traffic, to service the proposed self builds in military road, and drift road using what are in effect country lane where two cars have problems passing, and if a building lorry is delivering nothing can get tp and down. How would any of this be managed and would these houses use military road and drift road as a rat run. Also, how would sewage be solved. In 1978/79 the council refused the builders of pallant gardens to put 9 and 10s frontage on military road because of increasing the traffic volume!

The drainage and waterlogged area will be made worse by this development. Again, traffic is a problem here already without extra housing. It will cause chaos and spoil our village! Just building 2 houses on the river front road and completing an extension on 1 house on East Hill close caused us all extra problems with workman's vans and lorries parked everywhere. Goodness knows where all the extra works traffic will be parked – probably in Greenlarks where everyone seems to park!!! Flooding will add to the already existing problems.

we are appalled at the prospect of 26 houses being built on Gauntletts Field. There are a number of reasons to object to this possible development, but the one which concerns us the most is that of access and the road system. Military Road, Drift Rd, wallington shore rd and pinks Hill are woefully inadequate to cop0e with what would be up to 26 x 2= 52 additional cars seeking to use these roads. At present , all of thses roads experience severe congestion on a daily basis, HGV and large vans on Pinl Hill, the other roads especially Military Rd and Drift Rd are to all extents and purposes single track. Making them a nightmare and a danger. The Possibility of a collision is all to apparent especially as people exceed the newly (& sensibly ) imposed 20mph speed limit. In our opinion the possibility of alleviation these already existent problem, were the traffic flow to be greatly increased through the development of Gauntletts Field simply does not exist. In addition there is the problem of natural springs on this field. Living below it, we have suffered flooding on our property on many occasions over the years. all propertires living below Gauntletts Field suffer. On these grounds , we vehemently oppose the possibility of developing Gauntletts field in this way.

There has been 2 public inquires associated with this site and both have resulted in the development being refused,. Nothing has changed to should not be built on. The access roads are very narrow and there are no pavements, There is a chance of flooding due to the natural springs. This small open space should not be lost to housing.

Military Road is a narrow unadopted Road with no pavements for pedestrians. Geologically there are problems with land drainage due to the presence of natural springs and also an area of blue slipper clay. Properties below have already experienced flooding due to this problem. Water from hard surfaces flooding due to this problem. Water from hard surfaces if houses are built here would drain into the River Wallington – already subject to flooding.

The site has Green Field status. It is geologically unsuitable for building due to numerous springs. These springs cause water to run off downhill and flooding to gardens. Our house has had the garden flooded during the Winter. The springs also run under our house and water runs from the foot of our drive all year. Building on this site will undoubtedly add to these problems. The area is well known for subsidence problems caused by blue slipper clay. Our own property was extensively underpinned and required piling down to bedrock. The majority of properties in East Hill close have experienced problems from subsidence. Road access to the site is from narrow roads which have no pedestrian paths and they have the status of private roads. Traffic in the village is already a problem which will only be made far worse by building so many new homes. The roads through the village are narrow, cottages are directly situated off the pavement, there is no parking, so cars park on the road making the family through the village difficult. Access from the village onto Delme roundabout is a nightmare, drivers take their lives in their hands. The village has experienced infilling in recent years with new homes on Cliffons yard, which have added to pressure on parking. Any building on the remaining green sites will destroy the village identity. It will also increase the water run-off and the flooding risk for the river will be much higher

Military road is single rd with no footpaths as is Housing Rd of Drift road -site is subject to springs in wet weather. Run off from any development will as to the add to already high flood risk in the village. The site has no public transport to the area the existing sewage system wont cope with extra volume. Flooding from sewers is already come in lower parts of wallington.

Coast and Countryside greenfield site, development here correctly refused twice in the past. This is a narrow country lane with no passing places. Residents drives and used for the purpose. An extra appx. 50 vehicles would have made life bearable. I have been a resident for 40 years and Wallington has always been semi-rural, these small pockets of green enjoyed by everyone are essential and irreplaceable. Flooding problems in the field are well known and would affect all properties new and existing, the field provides an excellent buffer between residential and Fort Wallington industrial use.

Military Road is a narrow and private road, without any pavements it provided a "single-tack" access to drift road, which is similarly narrow and is also without pavements. A number of natural springs exist on the site which have caused flooding to local properties. In addition, there are pockets of "Blue slipper clay" a further indication as to the sites unsuitability. In summary – this is a small piece of "open space" that is cherished by village residents. In fact, it is the only other piece of green space within the village. It is a greenfield site!

A greenfield site and a narrow country lane, you will be bringing an extra 50 cars! your plans show 3 storey housing and 2 storeys, the sky line will be totally altered. Town homes in the country. Flooding is also a problem as our neighbours in Military Road will tell you. Once again a buffer between an industrial and residential use. This area needs to be preserved and not lost. The impact on wildlife is sad. When it's gone it's gone.

Access to Fareham will be via Standard Way/Broadcut - A hazard to pedestrians, many people, especially towards the more northerly parts of Wallington, use Military road and or Pinks Hill to access the slip road onto Junction 11 of the M27. These roads cope with the traffic currently but the large number of houses proposed - with many new households using more than one car, would not be able to use these roads without problems cause on what are, effectively single carriageway routes. Widening would cause complete closure of them during the necessary works. This would impact current commercial traffic as well. The intent to build further housing in Wallington increases the impact to result from the Development at welborne. The river running through the village is vulnerable to conditions/activities upstream and during the severe flooding, vehicular traffic for many, is only possible in and out via Drift road and Military road, Pinks hill. The river supports a variety of wildlife , not just ducks and fish, that includes egrets and kingfishers at some times in the year. Pinks hill provides a green buffer between the village and M27 where nature can find refuge from human activity. Wallington residents have few facilities in the village, needing to travel into Fareham Town for Doctors, and other healthcare which will be very overstretched by Welborne where such facilities are not planned to be provided for until enough houses are built there, which will not be at the outset and could be several years. This also applies to schools.

Flooding Wallington has already experienced flooding, not only in the lower levels of the village but in houses below Gauntlets field. The field currently aids drainage. The erection of houses in that area would significantly increase the flow of water down into the village, especially as the field has natural springs. Witness the flooding in Chichester due to the winding of estates. Sewage The sewage/ drainage systems are already overloaded, and would be further overloaded by extra houses Access This is already difficult via Drift Road, Military Road, Pinks Hill and Standard Way. Further houses/ population would not only affect access but increase traffic pressure on the Delme roundabout, Broadcut etc. In addition, military road and pinks hill are not public highways. Green sites We should NOT be building on Green sites which are rapidly diminishing. Brown sites should be used. Earlier and successful objections concerning development of this field were based on it being a greenfield site. Public services Doctors surgeries and schools are already overloaded, and are unlikely to withstand the extra load of all the housing sites in the proposals in the area. Witness the NHS problems with Welborne, QA hospital etc. We cannot afford to fund the existing system with the existing population. Employment With the ever shrinking of employment opportunities in the area, due to firms/ military services closing or moving away, the increase in numbers would be unsustainable. Natural environment The building of houses in Gauntlets field (military road) would affect deer's and foxes known to inhabit the area.

The Fareham Borough Council Local Plan includes Core Strategic Policy CS4 which sets out a hierarchy of nature conservation designations and emphasises the importance of protecting these sites, habitats and species, including local wildlife sites and corridors which contribute to the wider biodiversity of the Borough. These measures stem from the Earth Summit at Rio deo Janeiro in 1992 and the UK Government's commitment to the convention on the Conservation of Biological Diversity leading to the adoption of the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UK BAP). I wish to object to the method being adopted for considering future building sites in the Borough which fails to recognise this important environmental undertaking and is detrimental to any existing or potential value the land may have for wildlife. I have observed Common Bird's-foot-trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) along the grass verge of Military Road for example which is the larval foodplant of several butterflies, in particular the Common Blue (Polyommatus lcarus) which I have seen here. Other grass feeding butterfly species, of which 11 have been found in the Borough, are also present and what may appear to be insignificant patches of grassland are often habitats for them, especially if allowed to mature for overwintering butterflies such as the Small Skipper (Thymelicus sylvestris). These and other insects are a key ecological element and provide an important food resource for other wildlife. Furthermore, the sites help to form essential corridors for wildlife allowing many insect species to disperse and form metapopulations which can strengthen landscape-scale conservation. For these reasons I oppose development on the above sites. Erecting buildings on these sites could affect the water table by reducing the areas of land available for soakage in times of heavy rainfall and where spring water is evident, thereby, possibly adding to the risk of flooding in Wallington. The Council's proposals fail to mention topographical constraints such as the impact a development could have on sloping sites where roofs would penetrate the skyline and the incline create a greater visual intrusion demanding a scheme of high architectural quality, ideally avoiding pastiche. Furthermore, the proximity of the M27, Junction 11 and the south motorway link with noise and pollution generated by intensive traffic, will be a serious environmental concern for new residents living nearby which, to overcome, could mean higher building costs. I therefore oppose development on the above sites.
