As long-time readers will know, we OPPOSED building on green fields in the West Rayleigh / Rawreth area. But after some bitter battles in the council chamber, we lost the vote, and development is slowly but surely going ahead.
Countryside Developments already have ‘outline’ permission on their large site between London Road and Rawreth Lane. This means that they WILL be able to build, but the details still need to be agreed for each part of the site.
They have applied for details for the first stage – which is 192 homes with access from Rawreth Lane. You can find out more on the council website here.
We know a LOT of people are concerned about this, in particular the extra traffic, air quality, loss of green belt, a lack of amenities and concerns about flooding.
As district councillors we normally have to stay neutral until the planning meeting takes , but we very much want your views to be heard and for you to be kept informed…..
