Posbrook Planning Appeal – Rule 6 Statement

As an officially recognised body the Neighbourhood Forum (TNPF) has submitted what is called a Rule 6 Statement to the Planning Inspectorate and will be represented at the Appeal in November.

This statement is based upon the policies within the Draft Neighbourhood Plan which oppose developments such as the one proposed at Posbrook. The Forum also supports objections made by other individuals or organisations.

Housing Development – Titchfield Motors, East Street

A planning application has been made for the demolition of the existing motor works and the erection of three 3-bedroomed terraced houses.

The recent Aecom Housing Needs Assessment, reported in a recent post, shows that Titchfield will need 10  houses per year for the next 20 years.

As part of the Forum’s remit, the Housing and Sites group has been looking at various sites that meet the criteria the Titchfield residents gave us for development – see results of housing questionnaire.

The Titchfield Motors site meets most of the criteria –  brownfield sites; smaller sites; in accessible locations; mainly for two or three bedroomed homes – so the Forum proposes supporting  this application.

We are sorry to see the demise of a well- supported local business but the houses will be an asset.

Please let us have your comments on our website or contact Fareham Borough Council. The application can be viewed on line via Fareham BC planning portal, the reference is P/17/0985/FP.

Forum Objects to Posbrooke Plans

The forum has objected to the proposed Posbrooke Planning application – see below – but it is important that individuals also send in their own objection. Apparently the powers that be count the number of objections so the Forum objection will only score one point.
