Fears over future of field at centre of three Hampshire villages – Portsmouth News.
The developers are out for one thing and one thing only, to line their own pockets and the sad thing is that our local planners are letting them get away with it. Taylor Wimpey are threatening to build 220 new homes on a beautiful piece of countryside just a short distance away from an existing development of 275 homes.
Lynn McIver, speaking for Taylor Wimpey, has said
‘We are confident that this scheme will provide an attractive and sustainable development of much-needed housing in the area, as well as delivering affordable housing for local people.’
Decimating our local heritage, our beautiful countryside is never “attractive”. Hampshire is being eroded, one plot, one field, one farm at a time. This is just the latest foray by the developers and if allowed to proceed will be a disaster.
A consultation is scheduled to be held in Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane, on March 7, from 2pm to 7.30pm.
Be there and make your voices heard.

I’m pretty sure Jonie Mitchell got this one right…
Do you know I’d forgotten that song…..they paved paradise, put up a parking lot…. She was so on the money with those lyrics.
She was indeed. And yet thirty odd years later we still haven’t taken her point on board. Undoubtedly a frightening degree of paradise has been lost during those intervening decades.
