Thorney Road




Land west of Thorney Road I wish to support for the stance I believe the Parish Council is making in recommending strongly that the land west fo thorney road is wholly unsuitable for housing development. It is within the Chichester Harbour AONB, it is prone to flooding and consequently enjoys a magniificent variety of wildlife and fauna much of which goes unnoticed perhaps because the AONB has other very attractive waterside sites. This area is crisscrossed by footpaths affording lovely views for walkers and yet remains reasonably close to Emsworth Town Centre. To take away this haven of meadowland would be a disaster and create a precedent for further development.

 

 


The Thorney road site should continue to be regarded as unsuitable for development for the reasons:

1. It is within the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and residential development would intrude on views from the harbourside and other locatios within the AONB.
2. Development of the land would erode the effectiveness of land currently forming a strategic gap between developed areas.
3. Development of the land would create an undesirable precedent for proposals to develop land immediately to the south.

 


 

'Hermitage Thorney Road Development'
  
 'I have great reservations about the development of these fields and would object to this development. It
 is in the AONB and outside the Settlement Policy Area. It would set a precedent to further develop the fields to to south and possibly east of
Thorney Road.
 1. Mr Perkins said that he would renew the field drains to prevent the rain water flooding down through the properties in
Slipper Road. He did not know if this would be sufficient to cope when a development sited several feet above Slipper Road was completed.
 2.He did not make it clear where other surface water would be discharged. Hopefully not through the existing drain into the
Yacht Harbour putting more oily and soap deposits into Chichester Harbour.
 3. He could give no indication of the amount of car parking for the residents and visitors on the site to prevent them parking in Thorney and Slipper Roads.
 4. His plan for altering the existing car parking in
Thorney Road was vague. He said that there would be 2 rows of cars parked in the slip road in front of the existing cottages. He did not say if this slip road would be widened so that cars could drive through and manouever or that Thorney Road be widened to cope.
 5.Mr Perkins said the plot is close enough to Emsworth for people to walk in on the improved footpaths to do their shopping. It is nearly a mile into the town and most people would not manage this. When I suggested a cycle path, he said people could cycle on the footpath!
 6. With increased traffic, there will be problems at the junction with the A259.
 7. With all the proposed Parish developments will the Cycle Path on the A259 be improved for the safety of cyclists coping with the increased traffic.
 8. In the Parish Plan, what is the provision for Schools and Medical facilities to cope with the increase in population?'
