Another chance to comment on Pitt Vale

Steve Brine is joining local councillors and campaigners in asking residents to comment on the latest submitted plans from Linden Homes for Pitt Vale, before the 4th May deadline.

Winchester City Council has published amended proposals received from the developers this past week, with modifications made to the plan to build 350 homes. The amendments include an expansion of the green buffer zone to the west, sports provision, and an extension to pedestrian and cycle routes.

Steve Brine said: "We have long opposed this proposed development, which has been dragging on for some time now, and I urge local people to take this chance to comment further on these plans before the 4th May deadline."

Cllr Jan Warwick said: "As your local councillor I will urge the Planning Committee to robustly oppose any development on this site. A great deal of work went into creating the Local Plan for Winchester.

"Building on Pitt Vale is not part of our plan as development here will put Pitt Village, our local infrastructure and highways, under tremendous strain"

Local campaigners Gavin Dick and Rob Ducker added: "This application is still unacceptable and should be refused. We will let you know when the application is due to go before the planning committee but it is important local residents add their comments on this planning application now."
