Representations on Development Allocation EA1: Faraday Business Park

Number of representations on policy: 10

Objection: 5

Support: 2

Comment: 3

Objections

Very strong concern that the A32 and local road infrastructure will be unable to deal with further employment in this location.

Strong concern over the level of traffic that the allocation will create giving rise to further congestion in the area.

Concern over the loss of open space resulting from increased employment at this location.

Concern over the lack of public transport serving the site and the local area.

Concern over the impact that the allocation will have on the strategic gap.

Concern over the cumulative impact of the allocation alongside the IFA2 development.

Concern about the ancillary uses that are proposed to support employment provision.

The site is identified as a "Low Use" site in the updated Solent Water and Brent Goose Strategy (site ref F13). Appropriate mitigation must be used to ensure any development does not have an impact on the adjacent 'low use' site for Brent Geese and Waders. (RSPB)

Concern that a further assessment of the historic significance of the buildings on the site should be undertaken through the SA Site Options Assessment before this site goes forward and certainly before any demolition is allowed, and that this requirement should be reflected in the policy (Historic England).

Support

Agreement that the location is an ideal location for new business and creating more jobs.

Support for criterion i) in order to ensure adequate protection is afforded to potential archaeological heritage assets in accordance with paragraphs 135 and possibly 139 of the NPPF (Historic England)

Comments

Hampshire County Council has a statutory responsibility as the Highway Authority for Public Rights of Way and has a joint aspiration with Gosport Borough Council to provide a new multi-user link from Gosport Road to Broom Way to provide sustainable travel access to the Alver Valley Country Park. Such an enhancement would be of

benefit to the future occupiers of the Faraday Business Park, in providing better transport links and recreational opportunities. HCC therefore would like to explore whether this allocation could help achieve this aspiration (Hampshire County Council – Highways).

Southern Water is the statutory water and wastewater undertaker for the area covering the proposed allocation. Underground infrastructure is present at the site and needs to be considered when designing the proposed development through an easement, or possibly a diversion. Additional criteria suggested of '(m) provide future access to existing underground wastewater infrastructure for maintenance and upsizing purposes' (Southern Water).

The commercial development at Daedalus does not impact upon Portsmouth Water's resources (Portsmouth Water).

Comments

Hampshire County Council has a statutory responsibility as the Highway Authority for Public Rights of Way. HCC has an aspiration to create a new PROW across the Daedalus site, roughly along the southern boundary of this site. HCC would therefore like to explore whether this allocation could help achieve this proposal, which would be of benefit to future occupiers of the business park (Hampshire County Council – Highways).

Representations on Development Allocation EA3: Solent 2

Number of representations on policy: 6

Objection: 4

Support: 1

Comment: 1

Objections

Very strong concern that further employment in this location will lead to increased traffic congestion – particularly at M27 junction 9 and within Whiteley.

Strong concern that due to the level of traffic this allocation is likely to generate that there will be an increase in the level of air pollution locally which will have a negative impact on peoples' health.

Concern that the level of employment being planned for is far higher than it needs to be and nationally should be spread more evenly.

Concern over the lack of supporting infrastructure for this allocation

Concern over the lack of public transport serving Whiteley.

Concern over the impact that development is having on communities and peoples' quality of life.

Concern that the level of traffic congestion will make road safety even worse.

Concern that the proposal directly contradicts the Local Plan objective to protect open space.

Support

Support the allocation of Solent 2 which is consistent with the allocation in the Winchester Local Plan Part 2. (Winchester City Council).

Comments

Hampshire County Council Countryside Service manages Countryside Sites and Country Parks throughout Hampshire. Whiteley Woods, which is a SINC and an HCC Countryside Service site, is located just to the north of this site. The Woods will provide a valuable recreational facility for the future occupiers of this business park and the County Council therefore request that appropriate mitigation is secured from this allocation towards protecting and enhancing this Countryside Service site. (Hampshire County Council – Countryside Service).

Comment: 1

Objections

Very strong concern that further employment in this location will lead to increased traffic congestion, particularly on Southampton Road and through Titchfield.

Strong concern over the level of pollution, particularly noise, that is likely to be generated by this allocation and the negative impact that this will have on peoples' lives.

Concern over the lack of infrastructure (doctors, dentists, schools and) available to support this allocation.

Concern over the lack of public transport and its ability to accommodate an increase in the population of the area.

Comments

With regards to site access, Fareham Borough Council are advised that there is an existing hammerhead access off Cartwright Drive to serve the development of this site and as such access would not need to be from Stephenson Road or Talbot Road. (Hampshire County Council - Highways)


Representations on Development Allocation EA5: Standard Way

Number of representations on policy: 16

Objection: 14

Support: 1

Comment: 1

Objections

Very strong concern that this allocation will lead to increased traffic congestion on what are already busy roads; Pinks Hill, Broadcut, Delme roundabout and through Wallington village.

Strong concern over the safety of the access to the site from Standard Way for both vehicles and pedestrians – combined with the traffic from the Suez waste transfer station, Boarhunt Recovery and the overnight lorry parking.

Strong concern over the need for further employment development in Wallington and the cumulative impact of further development in this location.

Strong concern over the level of air pollution (NO2 and CO2 particularly) that is likely to be generated by this allocation and the negative impact that this will have on peoples' lives, and the impact on the allocation of air pollution from the motorway.

Strong concern over the level of noise pollution that is likely to be generated by this allocation on top of the existing background levels and the negative impact that this will have on peoples' lives, and the impact on the allocation of air pollution from the motorway

Strong concern over the loss of green space which currently provides a green buffer to the motorway.

Strong concern over how the proposal would lead to an increased risk of flooding to Wallington village.

Concern over the impact that the development would have on water pipe infrastructure which is already overloaded.

Concern over pedestrian safety due to the lack of pedestrian footways to the proposed development site

Concern over the impact that the development would have on the character of the adjoining settlement of Wallington

Concern over the impact that the development will have to the general quality of life of Wallington residents.

Concern over the detrimental impact that the development would have on the already difficult problem of parking.

Concern over the existing pillbox adjacent to Pinks Hill.

Concern over safety of traffic exiting Pinks Hill onto A27

Concern over the absence of any public transport serving the site.

Concern that development may result in detrimental views from Wallington village and Portsdown Hill Road.

Support

Land is in the full control of Foreman Homes and there are no known legal or ownership issues that would constrain the site coming forward.

Site is an ideal location for B1, B2 or B8 development due to excellent access to the M27 particularly for HGVs.

Site is subject to noise disturbance which would be compatible with an employment use.

Comments

Fareham Footpath 505 runs along Paradise Lane to the east of these sites. HCC in their role as the Highway Authority for Public Rights of Way have an aspiration to upgrade Footpath 505 to a multi-user route and provide a link along Military Road to Fareham Bridleway 100 in Broadcut. The County Council would like to explore whether this site allocation, together with the proposed housing allocations in Wallington could help deliver this aspiration (Hampshire County Council – Highways).
