Help shape development in Solent Breezes
By AmyLocksHeath | Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 08:54
Fareham Borough Council is inviting residents to comment on the draft Policy for Solent Breezes in the Development Sites and Policies Plan in a consultation running from Monday 25 February 2013 until Monday 25 March 2013.
Solent Breezes Holiday Park
The Council has previously consulted with residents on the draft Development Sites and Policies Plan, which will help guide development, such as housing, offices, shops and open space, in the Borough, and would like to hear further comments on the draft policy relating to Solent Breezes.
Solent Breezes has been developed as a holiday home park bit by bit through various planning applications. Some of the planning applications relating to how long people are able to use the holiday homes during the year have been determined by planning appeals. In the most recent appeal decision, the Government Inspector said that Solent Breezes is not a suitable place for people to live permanently.
Executive Member for Strategic Planning and Environment Councillor Keith Evans said: "We would like to hear people's comments on the draft Policy for Solent Breezes. The draft policy states that planning permission will not be given to anybody wishing to live in their holiday home or chalet for more than 10 months of the year. It cannot take away permission from those who already have it to live in their chalets. This policy will help to provide clarity and ensure consistency with other development across the Borough."
The draft policy, a response form and related documents including the report to the Council's Executive meeting on 7 January and the draft Development Sites and Policies Plan, can be viewed online by visiting the Council's website at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultations. Owners of holiday homes at the site and residents living near the holiday park are being contacted by letter.
If you have any queries about this policy, please call 01329 236100 and ask for Planning (Strategy) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The office is open between 08:45 and 17:15 Monday to Thursday and between 08:45 and 16:45 on Friday.
Please note that the deadline for responses is Monday 25 March 2013.
