PLANS to convert a former munitions building into a three-bedroom home have been thrown out.
Gosport Borough Council unanimously voted against the application to build the property on a cordite magazine off Brittania Way.
I can‘t remember a time when an application has got less going for it than this oneCllr Stephen Philpott
As reported in The News, developer and land-owner Alan Dawes wants to convert part of the site and has had several applications refused.
In a planning meeting held by the council, a deputation was given by a resident which highlighted why the councillors should reject the plan.
Using the acronym ‘badgers’ John Hudson listed badgers, asbestos, danger from contaminated soil, greed, explosives, reptiles and the area being considered a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation as reasons for the refusal.
During discussions for the plan Cllr Stephen Philpott said: ‘I can‘t remember a time when an application has got less going for it than this one.’
Ward councillor Peter Langdon added: ‘This is a very inappropriate application.’
Mr Dawes declined to comment.
