Eastleigh Borough Councils Local Plan 2011-2029 has been rejected by the planning inspector - due to a lack of affordable homes and “significant” extra work is required by Eastleigh Borough Council to make a workable plan.

So on the news above, that the new plan will not be produced until the Summer of 2015, then consequnetly voted on by elected councillors, to be put to Gouvernment inspectors in the Autumn, means that your vote in May for a local councillor, will really count and you have a chance to ensure that your elected representative votes as you would like and Stoneham Park remains undeveloped and the fabulous are of nature that is it presently is.

Eastleigh Borough Councils Local Plan 2011-2029 earmarked this parkland for development of 1300 homes, this was subsequently reduced to 1100 homes. However after the planning inspector reviewed the plan in November 2014, it has been found to be flawed, due to not enough housing being provided in the plan. As a further plan will be prepared and available for consultation in Summer 2015.
Please support us, to enable us to Save Stoneham Park, should it be included in the new 2011-2036 Local Plan for the Borough of Eastleigh.
