Erection of 113 dwellings, landscaping, car parking, erection of substation and pump station, and creation of 2 new accesses and associated works, following demolition of existing buildings:
Land at Picket Twenty, Picket Twenty, Andover
Observation: Objection
• The development will have significant ecological impact on protecting wildlife. Particularly the bat population, foraging areas, dormice habitat and hedgehogs. No enhancement measures are planned. The site neighbours Harewood Common and the proposals of the development will result in loss of habitat. More specific mitigation should be implemented and further surveys may be required.
• Play area park seems very small and should possibly have more equipment.
• The development is relying on the existing POS areas from previous planning applications. The site needs to be provided with more allotment space at Picket Twenty. The allotment space provided on Picket Twenty Extension by The Middleway was not calculated to include the development at the Poultry Farm.
• Access for 113 houses through Blinker Way, out by the shop seems to be rather tight. No comments from Highway as yet.

Common Ash - Crown Raise up to 5m (Taking no more than 100mm in diameter off branches)
Currently the tree is very low over the garden, at the lowest point it is only 3M above. Currently there is quite a lot of dead wood coming off the tree, and we are worried for our 5-year-old playing in the garden due to lots of debris on the grass and in case any dead wood were to fall. There is also a lot of shading, which is causing the grass to die and during rainy periods a lot of rain falls towards to the house.
We have spoken to the neighbour at Winterdyne Mews, and he is happy for any work to be carried out to the tree:
3 Denning Mead And 21 Winterdyne Mews, Andover, SP10 3LG
