HIRA's Hustings: Report

Please find below our report on last Friday's Hustings Public Meeting in case you were unable to be there. Committee members also present agreed it is a fair account and it is vital that we are all well informed about our candidates' responses to local questions prior to voting.

It is important to note that Hayling has only 1 County Council representative and we trust that they will put Hayling residents first at County level.

Fathoms Reach Concerns

Some residents of Fathoms Reach expressed concerns to HIRA about other residents being approached to sell their homes to a developer in order for the latter to put in a planning application for the, currently, 'open' land behind Fathoms Reach. Havant BC Planning Services have now answered my two questions below, which pivot around local residents' understanding - when they were sold their properties on Fathoms Reach - that the land behind had to remain 'open'. I am posting the Council's response to our email hello@haylingresidentsassociation.co.uk so that those concerned about this issue can read it. The Council Officer did not state that the information is confidential. What were the o

Fathoms Reach

Residents in Fathoms Reach reported last week that a selected number of houses along that road have been made offers in excess of their properties' current value by a housing developer, who needs to bulldoze those properties in order to gain access to land behind them. What is shocking the residents who have reported this, is that, when they bought their Fathoms Reach homes not so long ago, they were told that the then developer was not allowed to develop the land immediately behind them. This gave them, as future home owners, the assurance that this land would remain 'open land' i.e. undeveloped, not built on. For what reason did Havant Borough Council Planning Officers prevent the then d
