Update: 24 October 2019 


Pennyfarthing Homes of New Milton has submitted a formal planning application to develop the MCA site. The proposal includes 8 detached 2 storey, and 4 semi-detached 3 storey properties and a block of 4 storey flats, backing on to the nature reserve.

A public consultation was held and full details are available online at the PennyFarthing website. 

Local residents have formed a new action group The Friars Cliff Action Group (FCAG) to act as a focal point, sharing information and collecting residents’ views on the draft proposals.  To date the main areas of concern of the group are:

  • The density of dwellings on the site
  • The size, height and style of dwellings on the draft plans
  • The loss of preserved trees

The planning admin team has uploaded most of the FCAG 123 objections. The next stage is for the planning committee to set a hearing date when FCAG can present a summary of the objections in an allocated 5 minute slot.

The Action Group, separate from the Residents’ Association, welcomes all views and comments both before and especially after the planning application has been submitted.
