Application for permission to create Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) on Land South Of Eversley Road And East Of Marsh Lane, Marsh Lane, Eversley, Hook, Hampshire.
In response to an informal letter from Obsidian, a development company, to seek its views on the creation of SANG on this site, the Parish Council sent the following reply:
Proposed Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space (SANG) – Land South of Eversley Road and East of Marsh Lane, Eversley Cross.
Thank you for your letter of 31 July. I am sorry for the time taken to reply. This is because your letter arrived after the Parish Council meeting in July and could not be considered until September, when the Council next met.
Eversley Parish Council notes that the reference to Eversley Cross on your website still states that Obsidian will be promoting the land for residential development and a large strategic SANG. This implies that your proposal is not a “standalone SANG proposal” as stated in your letter of 31st July.
Eversley Parish Council takes the view that any proposal to create SANG in this locality should be for the whole 60 acres, since the adjacent land between Marsh Lane and Chequers Lane has already been deemed unsuitable for residential development. This would have the additional benefits of better connections to the local rights of way network and existing public spaces, increasing pedestrian access and minimising the increase in vehicular traffic associated with the proposal.
Obsidian have now applied formally for permission to create SANG and have also replied to EPC’s letter as follows:
Many thanks for your email regarding our proposals for a SANG at Eversley Cross.
The proposals for the creation of a Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace is to be located at Land South of Eversley Road and East of Marsh Lane only; this is a 16.0 hectare site. The proposals have been carefully prepared strictly in accordance with Natural England’s guidance and in consultation with the representatives of Natural England. Such a proposal is required to meet relevant technical specifications such as the provision of a minimum 2.3 km long continuous natural circular footpath and minimal man-made structures or features. The proposed site has the capability of complying with Natural England’s guidance for SANG which Natural England has confirmed in writing.
We have very recently submitted a planning application for the proposed natural green space at Land to the south of Eversley Road and East of Marsh Lane to Hart District Council; the application has just been registered with the Council and the statuary consultation exercise is expected to commence within the next 7 days. The Parish Council will be consulted as part of that process.
The planning application does not, as we stated in our letter to the Parish Council, comprise any residential development nor does the application accompany any other planning applications or proposals for residential development. In this respect, the submitted proposal is for a standalone accessible natural greenspace.
For further information on the proposals, the planning application is viewable at https://publicaccess.hart.gov.uk/online-applications/ by searching the application reference – 20/02308/FUL.
Please do not hesitate to contact us directly should you wish to discuss the proposals in further detail or require any further information.
