Transport

Highways and access was fully considered by East Hampshire District Council and Hampshire County Council as part of the outline planning permission, which approved the site access and junction arrangement from Selborne Road.

Internal access and parking details have been designed to ensure safe and convenient movement around and through the development for all road users and pedestrians. Parking has been designed and arranged to comply with the local standards set out in the Alton Neighbourhood Plan.

The site will also provide cycle parking, within garages or sheds in rear gardens for the houses and in communal cycle stores for the flats.

Off-Site Highways

Full planning permission has been approved for off-site highways works, to include:

  • construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Selborne Road, Winchester Road, Butts Road, and Whitedown Lane
  • new link road between Selborne Road and Winchester Road;
  • demolition of Stonehill Farmhouse and associated buildings;
  • the stopping up of Winchester Road at its eastern end with the provision new turning area, and;
  • works associated with the construction of a replacement railway bridge (Butts Bridge) across Whitedown Lane.

Some clearance work has already been undertaken to facilitate delivery of the site access and offsite highways works. This work was done to avoid bird nesting season. The triangle site now benefits from the installation of a number of bird, bat and dormouse boxes within retained woodland/ scrub, and the planting of a new native, species-rich belt along the southern boundary to provide long-term benefits to local biodiversity.
