Save Fleet Meadow started this petition to A2Dominion and

Residents of Fleet Meadow recently received a leaflet from A2Dominion proposing a development of 325 houses on land off of Sandringham Road. 

A2Dominion’s plans would mean approximately 450 more cars using the already saturated roads particularly Jubilee Way and the Jubilee Roundabout. East Hagbourne is also likely to see an increase in traffic as people use the country roads as a rat run to Harwell and the A34. The safety of residents along Sandringham Road could also be put at risk with a greater number of cars using a road that has lots of bends and many parked cars causing blind spots. Creating the access road to the proposed site means the demolition of a block of flats, owned by A2Dominion, in Mansfield Gardens and leaving existing residents looking for homes. Obviously A2Dominion have considered the interest of local residents when developing their plans?!

The proposed site for development also sits adjacent to the Wessex Downs Area of Natural Beauty and although according to the ‘master plan’ a suggestion is made that they would not build within the area, it almost certainly will impact on views to and from it, particularly from the footpath to the north and houses on the edge of Fleet Meadow. A2Dominion in their infinite wisdom have also planned to build blocks of flats at the closest point to already existing residents, meaning houses and gardens will be overlooked. They also plan to build their four bedroom ‘affordable housing’ looking out over the Area of Natural Beauty. A nice selling point for A2Dominion I’m sure!

I’m extremely frustrated that although Didcot has approved the building of over 6500 more houses, and allocated sites for these, the local plan and the Didcot Garden Town plan is ignored and residents are yet again set to fight against the tidal wave of hungry developers who propose to build in the interest of local residents but do not consider the long term consequences. When will it end?
