Eastleigh Borough Council's Draft Local Plan exhibition comes to the Village Hall in Hedge End between 2pm and 8pm.
Attention will doubtless focus on the huge housing developments for which Hedge End Lib Dem councillors have repeatedly voted. The plan proposes 3,700 more houses in Hedge End and Botley - nearly 40% of the 9,400 proposed for the Borough as a whole.
The draft plan also provides for:
- Two brand new roads at Botley and Sundays' Hill
- "Improvements" to Woodhouse Lane, Kings Copse Avenue and Heath House Lane
- A "green route" linking Hedge End to Eastleigh
- "Regeneration" of parts of Hedge End village centre
- "Traffic management" in Hedge End centre
- New public open space in the north of Hedge End
The Council's "consultation" runs until 3rd January, although Tuesday is the only date in Hedge End for the exhibition.
More independent commentary on the consultation can be found at Eastleigh News and TGR Worzel's blog.
