Throw out Planning Application C/15/75912 Pontoon extension to public jetty.The Quay, High Street, Hamble-Le-Rice,Southampton, SO31 4HA

Please, reconsider this application, please say "No". This pontoon extension to the public jetty falls within a conservation area. It is not necessary. It would alter the views and vistas of this heritage site, forever changing the tidal flow of the River Hamble.
Public facilities - access to the public slipway, scrubbing posts, a launching site for canoes, sailing dinghies, gigs, paddle boards, pulling skiffs, and public steps would be severely restricted by this application. The safe passage of yachts and small craft would be endangered by the narrowing of both the primary and secondary channels of the river.
Access to other facilities , such as the safe launching of small sailing dinghies, used to teach children how to sail - something generations of children have benefited from, will be endangered.
Accessing the rivers' only fuelling berth would be restricted, due to added tidal streams and eddies.
Low pressure systems, flood tides and strong south westerly winds will further flood local lanes and ways, something the Environment Agency have already acknowledged.
Please think again
