Post-Exhibition Update

This report to the Parish Council includes responses from Test Valley Borough Council to several issues raised by villagers during the consultation. It also includes a draft set of principles that the Housing Group believe should be considered by TVBC should a planning application be made in the future.

As a result of the consultation so far, the Housing Group does not believe that a 2-phase development aimed at meeting all the need identified in the Housing Needs Survey, would receive broad community approval. It has therefore agreed to recommend a development limited to a maximum of 12 affordable homes with the minimum number of market houses needed to optimise the community gain (up to a maximum of 6).
