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.
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.
