Parish Council Objection Letter to the Planning Application for 50 houses in Bishops Green (Reference 22/00174/OUT)

 Proposal for 50 new homes in Bishops Green - Woodside View Planning Reference 22/00174/OUT

Thank you to those of you who have already commented on this application. The closing date for comments has now been published as 16th March 2022 . If you have not yet commented, please can we urge you to have your say.

The application is for up to 50 homes on land directly opposite the land in the  Catesby Estates (College Copse) application for 350 homes. This is smaller than the College Copse application, but would still mean a 20% increase in the size of Bishops Green. This development is much larger than the number of homes proposed in the Basingstoke & Deane Local Plan Update - currently 15 homes.

The Parish Council will be objecting to this application. We ask you to look at the information on the Basingstoke & Deane Planning Portal and make your own views known to Basingstoke & Deane Council.

 The information on the application is available at:
