WE THE UNDERSIGNED ARE OPPOSED TO PLANS TO DEVELOP A LARGE-SCALE STRATEGIC GROWTH SITE ON GREEN FIELDS SOUTH OF WINCHESTER AS PROMULGATED IN THE STRATEGIC HOUSING AND ECONOMIC LAND AVAILABILITY ASSESSMENT (SHELAA) AS PART OF A NEW WINCHESTER DISTRICT LOCAL PLAN. WE CALL ON WINCHESTER CITY COUNCIL TO:

-REJECT PLANS FOR LARGE SCALE DEVELOPMENT ON GREEN FIELDS TO THE SOUTH OF WINCHESTER (SHELAA SITE REFS HU01, HU02, OB01 and CS03)
-PUT THE REGENERATION AND REDEVELOPMENT OF BROWN FIELD SITES AT THE HEART OF THE REFRESH OF THE WINCHESTER LOCAL PLAN
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Land in the SHELAA between Oliver’s Battery, Compton and Hursley would create an urban extension of Winchester building over beautiful and productive farming land and countryside.

Such a development would:

-Detract from the ancient history in Hursley Parish and border immediately onto the historic conservation area of Hursley. 

-Take place in existing settlement gaps and create coalescence of distinct and separate settlements.

-Damage beautiful countryside in Compton and Oliver’s Battery and destroy the rural views south west of Winchester from these parishes. 

-Damage the compact nature of the City of Winchester itself

-Exacerbate existing ground water flooding in Hursley Village

We do not need funding from you at this stage but please share this petition widely and FOR MORE UPDATES FOLLOW THE @Save South Winchester Facebook Page
