THE public is to get its chance to have a say on how a 60-acre site in western Fareham will develop.
Draft plans will go on display for the Coldeast site in Sarisbury, setting out how the site should be developed and managed in the future, providing the framework for future planning applications.
The document identifies various potential uses for the site including housing, the expansion of the neighbouring community hospital, recreation and leisure facilities.
The consultation period will run from Monday to July 18.
It can be seen online at fareham.gov.uk.
Copies of the document will also be at all of the borough’s libraries, as well as at the Civic Offices.
Fareham Borough Council will host exhibitions at Victory Hall in Warsash on June 13, 1pm–7pm, Sarisbury Green Community Centre, Sarisbury on June 15, 4.30pm–7pm, and Sarisbury Parish Rooms, Sarisbury, on June 22, 2pm–7.30pm
Councillor Keith Evans, in charge of planning matters, said: ‘Once the public has looked at the draft development brief or attended one of the exhibitions, we want to know what they think.
‘This is the public’s opportunity to respond and I would encourage them to do so.’
