South Alton Plan

Land East of Selborne Road – Reserved Matters application for 243 houses.

This is the first of two RM applications under the the banner “South Alton Plan”.  Click  here  to see The Alton Society’s submission.


Lord Mayor Treloar Hospital – Reserved Matters application for 280 houses.  Ref: 30021/066.

We have strongly objected to this second RM application to build 280 houses – the biggest development to hit us yet.  (Click here for our comments in full).  Whilst the developers have responded to some of the problems raised at the June consultation, there are many issues remaining, including:-

  • the potential desecration of the butterfly meadows,
  • the idea of a ‘country park’ (a nonsense in our view),
  • a deplorable lack of sustainable energy design, and
  • inadequate pedestrian links.

The deadline for comments is 30th August.

Pedestrian Route around the Butts Bridge works

A temporary pedestrian route to Chawton has now been established, for the duration of the Butts Bridge works.   It is securely fenced off, and runs via the new Winchester Road link, then on towards the pedestrian subway under the A31.  (See below). We have asked for this important route to be properly signed.
