Green Lane - Developers' Response

posted Dec 24, 2014, 7:47 AM by Anthony Crowther
We note your comments and concerns. Our transport Consultant, Richard Parker is already in discussions with Hampshire County Highways regarding the footpath at the top end of Green Lane where it connects on to Chalton Lane, which is all in Highways ownership, to see what can be agreed with Hampshire.
He is also talking to them with regards to Public transport to see if some of the contributions coming out of this site can be earmarked for improving Public transport to both the North and South of Clanfield.
The areas of road and pavement marked as blocked paving on the plans, while the kerb will be lower, there will still be a clear delineation between road and walk way.
All external finishes will have to be approved by EHDC, however, we are ensuring our elevations reflect characteristics found through the village including, neutral render, tile hanging, red brick and flint
Our Landscape Architects are working on the Landscaping strategy and are responding to individual requests from neighbors to the proposed development for particular screening requirements as well as ensuring the overall scheme is as green and appropriate as possible.
Community Safety
On all developments we have a conflict between Planners desire for permeability between old and new schemes and Secure by Design requirements of the police. All footpaths are being designed to have natural surveillance and where footpaths are connecting on to existing cul-de-sacs, street furniture will be put in place to ensure that cyclists and pedestrians have to slow down before existing in to the cul-de-sacs.
