Hamble Parish Council’s Objection to the Hamble Airfield Planning Application

Hamble Parish Council, with the help of our Planning Consultant, has submitted its objection to the Hamble Airfield Planning Application for the extraction of sand and gravel. At this stage, our objection focuses on the headline issues – but we will be following up on the many points you have raised with us over the last few months.

A summary of the objections are as follows:

𝗥𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝟭 – Traffic Impact: The Cemex application would create a severe impact on the local road network which is unacceptable and contrary to policies in the HMWP and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
𝗥𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝟮 – Proposals for Restoration and Management
𝗥𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝟯 – Environmental Impacts • Flood Risk • Air Quality • Noise • Dust • Site Layout and Management

The Parish Council asks Hampshire County Council, as the local planning authority to note its 𝗢𝗕𝗝𝗘𝗖𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡 to the Cemex application and consider all of the points raised in this and any subsequent correspondence to ensure that they properly inform the planning judgement that may be reached in due course. The Parish Council reserves the right to submit further detailed comments on consultation responses and additional material or evidence submitted by the applicant prior to the application being determined. The Parish Council also places on record its readiness to participate constructively in discussions to address the concerns that it has raised.

We’re still waiting for the Hampshire County Council Highways’ Authority response. While we wait for this, we will be doing a short traffic survey next to the schools on Hamble Lane, a survey of the Airfield users, as well as making contact with businesses to better understand their issues.
