Plans for 17 new homes in Dellands Lane.

A planning application has been lodged for 17 homes to be built on green space in Overton, but the development is smaller than originally proposed.

Noel and Marianne Preece have submitted a proposal for homes on land to the west of Dellands Lane, with open spaces incorporated, as well as rerouting of a section of the current road.

The proposed plan for the site will include six two-bed homes, seven three-beds and four four-beds.

Residents have expressed their disappointment, with some pointing out that homes could be built on the unoccupied brownfield site at Portals Mill, which closed last year.

A planning document states: “The site is served by Dellands Lane and Dellands and is well connected to community facilities and services which are within walking and cycling distance. Even though Dellands Lane is quite narrow, drivers continue using it as a rat-run to avoid heavy traffic that is occasionally caused by roadworks or slow traffic lights.

“The site currently exists as grazing pasture on the edge of the village of Overton. It is just under a hectare in area and is bounded by mature hedgerows and vegetation on all sides. There are Public Rights of Way beyond the southern and western boundaries.”

You can view the application on the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council website.
