Resident and member of the Save Warsash campaign Vic Styles said: ‘There are no real proposals for infrastructure such as roads, schools, surgeries, and it would manufacture extra problems in traffic to the A27 at Park Gate during the day and rush hour.

‘Fareham does have a challenge from central government to build more houses and the 2036 plan is flawed and should be reviewed - developments should be spaced out elsewhere in the borough to ease new local problems.’
