PLANS to build 60 homes and a new health centre in Horndean are set to get the green light.

Councillors at East Hampshire District Council have been recommended to approve the plans at a meeting next Wednesday.

Sunley Estates Ltd has applied to build the homes in Havant Road, next to the Keydell Nursery site, which is already earmarked for 160 homes.

Twelve of the new homes would be flats, with the rest being a mixture of houses ranging from one to four bedrooms in size.

A total of 24 would be affordable homes.

A planning report says the development would generate an extra 74 cars turning on to Havant Road at peak times.

Noise was an issue brought by the council’s environmental health officer as the site is close to the A3(M).

However, ground levels on the land nearer the motorway would be reduced so properties are protected from noise by the higher land to the west.

The meeting starts at 6.30pm in Penns Place, Petersfield.
