More than 110 people have objected to fresh plans for 112 homes alongside the Watercress Line, west of Longbourn Way in Four Marks, in just over a month.

Housing giant Redrow’s latest outline planning application was validated by East Hampshire District Council (EHDC) on February 7, and seeks to establish the “principle of development” on the nine-acre greenfield site, with a detailed application to follow.

It comes after Redrow saw its full planning application for 112 homes on the same site refused by EHDC in July last year. The developer is appealing this decision.

Objections to the latest plans range from traffic safety and the impact on local roads and particularly the bridge at Lymington Bottom Road, to the loss of farmland, the impact on biodiversity, and lack of infrastructure.
