LOCAL COUNCILLOR DIANE TAYLOR - UPDATE

COUNCILLOR TAYLOR HAS ADDED TO HER PREVIOUS COMMENTS TO PLANNERS AT BDBC INSISTING THAT LANDSCAPE IMPACT CONCERNING THE VIEWS FROM THE HOPED-FOR HOSPITAL MUST BE THE FOCUS OF CONSIDERATION. THE IMAGE RIGHT GIVES THE VIEWS IN QUESTION. "From: Cllr Diane Taylor <Cllr.Diane.Taylor@basingstoke.gov.uk>

Subject: Application Consultation for 23/03120/FUL Land At Oakdown Farm Winchester Road Dummer Basingstoke Hampshire

Dear Brian,

Could I add the following to my submission regarding the Newlands application? Many thanks.

Following the publication of the Regulation 18 version of the Local Plan update, some weight now has to be given to the landscape impact of the proposed development to the area known in the LPU as Southern Manydown. I would add that, following a judicial review in 2012, the further development of land in the South West area of Basingstoke is not only likely, but is legally required.

Viewed from the area to the North West of the application site, the landscape impact is immense. As shown in the photograph, the vista from the area (Southwood Farm) which is proposed for hospital/development incorporates a clear panoramic view of the Oakdown Farm site. This part of the Southern Manydown site, if it is retained in the LPU, will be occupied by residents and/or patients and staff and will contain public roads, footpaths and amenity land as well as homes and gardens. The landscape for members of the public will, to quote the appeal Inspector, be “irreversibly diminished”. I would like this new avenue of investigation of landscape impact to be reviewed as the determining issue of visual impact is researched."

CPRE HAMPSHIRE

This proposal is precisely the sort of development which should be directed toward brownfield sites rather than further spoiling the countryside with vast commercial and industrial buildings, associated infrastructure and the consequent increase in HGV traffic.

In principle the
Transport Strategy Team has no objection to this proposal, recognising that a more
thorough response to detail contained within the Transport Assessment and Travel Plan
