Redbridge Lane Housing Plans Delayed
I have been fighting plans to build 300 homes along Redbridge Lane, opposite Five Acre Field. The land falls under Test Valley and I have repeatedly voiced my concerns with the Leader of Test Valley Borough Council.
I am very worried about the loss of open space between Nursling and Southampton and about traffic problems from over development.
As a result of my lobbying and that of my colleague Cllr Paul Holmes (pictured above) we have secured a commitment that development along Redbridge Lane will not take place until at least 2023.
This is good news but it is not an end to our campaign to stop over development in Redbridge.
