There has been a heated debate recently in the Chandler’s Ford community about the proposal to refurbish the Pavilion situated in Hiltingbury Recreation ground.
What’s the proposal about? According to Chandler’s Ford Parish Council, the proposal is about the “Partial demolition, refurbishment and extension to existing sports pavilion, including provision of additional car parking facilities and construction of temporary car park.”
Here is the Planning Application Detail. (Planning Application: F/17/80958)
The consultation period ends on the 18th of August, 2017. Follow the link above to leave your comment to Eastleigh Borough Council regarding your views.
About the proposal to refurbish the Pavilion
Dave Oakley wrote in the page: “Part of the proposal is to build a temporary 40 space car park off Hiltingbury Road adjacent to the skate park, and the entrance will be where the double gates are now opposite Ashdown House.
My view is that a car park situated here will just cause chaos to an already busy traffic and pedestrian area and I have voiced my concerns to the council.”
Some residents welcome this proposal, but some are concerned about the impact it may cause to the community, in terms of traffic, and the loss of green space.
I hope more local residents could respond to this proposal before the consultation period ends on the 18th of August, 2017.
