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.
