Lindhoe Gardens

Banister Park is set to get a new road.

Next Tuesday the council will agree the name for a new close off Archers Road.

Approval was recently given for a development of 79 flats by Crest Nicholson at 1A Archers Road, a former nurses home at the junction with the Avenue.

The close is to take its name from Robert Lindhoe, the man who founded the Southampton Branch of the anti slavery society and is to mark the 200th anniversary of abolition of slavery in the British Empire.
