DEVELOPERS will set out their case for demolishing a bowling alley and a DIY store to make way for new homes.

Linden Homes wants to build 86 houses and flats at Havant Retail Park, Portsdown Hill Road, Bedhampton, where AMF Bowling and Homebase stand.

A development consultation forum will be held to give Linden a chance to put forward the proposals to Havant councillors and community leaders, to air any potential problems before an application is officially submitted.

Concerns have been raised over whether the Belmont roundabout, at the bottom of the road at the junction with Bedhampton Road, will be able to take all the extra cars that the development will generate.

But the developer says its plans show that it will work.

The forum will be held in the council chamber of the Public Service Plaza at Havant Borough Council tomorrow night from 6pm where the proposals for 49 houses and 37 apartments will be discussed. Some of the homes will be affordable housing.
