Pitt Vale – update (5 April 2016)

The latest information on the Pitt Vale development is that after a meeting between Linden Homes and Winchester City Council, Linden Homes will be submitting an Amendment to their traffic management plan.

This will be published on the city web site shortly – and we will update you on the reference number when it is published. There will then only be 28 days to object to this proposal. The objections will need to be separate to the objections to the main application that you may have written.

After this, the completed application will go to a special planning committee meeting that will take place in June or July. It has to go before the committee due to the large number of objections already submitted.

Once we know the date of this meeting we hope to call a meeting of the objectors to ensure the views are made clear to the council. Should it go to appeal these objections must clear when submitted to the inspector. The council still believes it position has been made clear to the developer but we cannot afford to take any chances.
