A MASTERPLAN on housing numbers and economic targets is being released for public consultation.

Leaders at East Hampshire District Council have agreed a draft plan for where hundreds of new homes should be built.

The report outlines a minimum of 700 new homes for Horndean, 200 for Clanfield and 150 for Rowlands Castle.

But a council report says: ‘The use of “minimum” levels of housing does not mean there are no ceilings to the housing requirements.’

About five acres of land in Horndean has been set aside for employment use to boost jobs.

Sites earmarked for housing are Hazleton Farm and land off Lovedean Lane for Horndean.

Down Farm is earmarked for Clanfield.

In Rowlands Castle, development sites are the former Brickworks, land south of Oaklands House and land north of Bartons Road.

Councillor Angela Glass, who heads planning, said: ‘This plan will assist us in determining the many planning applications which have flooded in.’

The plan is published on Friday for a six-week consultation. Visit easthants.gov.uk/draftsiteallocations.
