Site Requirements:

The site will be developed in accordance with the following site specific criteria:

  • provision of vehicular access to the site from Longmoor Road via the site allocated in the East Hampshire District Local Plan: Second Review;
  • implementation of appropriate measures to reduce the traffic impacts of the development on adjoining residential roads;
  • provision of a comprehensive Flood Risk Assessment to address any measures required to mitigate any potential impacts of surface water flooding including avoiding built development in low lying areas; and
  • provision of on-site SUDS;
  • provision of a Screening Assessment as the site lies within 5km of the Wealden Heaths Phase II SPA and could potentially have a significant impact on the ecological integrity of the SPA. The Assessment should ascertain whether the provision of adequate measures to avoid or mitigate any adverse effects is required;
  • developers should work with the District Council to ensure that the principles of the Energy Strategy are applied wherever possible; and
  • provision of an Employment and Training Agreement prior to the implementation of development.
