PLANS to build 12 homes on an old farm have attracted concerns from neighbours.

David Wilson Homes has applied to East Hampshire District Council to build 11 three-bedroom homes and one four-bedroom house at Meadow Croft Farm, in Green Lane, Clanfield.

The greenfield site of almost an acre, features a range of dilapidated farm buildings and is surrounded by houses.

One neighbour, in a letter to the council, said: ‘We already have a traffic problem in Green Lane and this proposed development will add to this.

‘It seems that no thought has been given to the increase in traffic it will generate to an already overloaded road which is becoming ever dangerous and will have an effect on present residents.’

Another resident said: ‘The proposal for 12 houses is excessive for such a small site.

‘The building height should be restricted to chalet height.’

A planning report by the developers states: ‘David Wilson Homes has taken great care to ensure that the proposal responds positively to the character and appearance of the area to ensure that it is appropriate within its setting, providing good quality family housing.’

There is no affordable housing proposed.
