SHEDFIELD PARISH COUNCIL
(Incorporating the villages of Shedfield, Shirrell Heath and Waltham Chase)
Potential Sites for Affordable Housing
Waltham Chase Village Hall Tuesday 20th March 2012
between 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm.
You are invited to attend an exhibition of the sites that have been considered for a small scheme of affordable housing for local people.
The 2007 Housing Needs Survey and 2010 Affordable Housing Drop in Event identified a significant number of local people in need of affordable housing in the parish. Shedfield Parish Council has been working with the Rural Housing Enabler and Winchester City Council to find suitable sites to develop 10-12 homes on each site for local people. This is likely to be on exception sites, just outside the settlement boundary, and therefore would only be developed as affordable housing for local people with a proven local connection.
The sites put forward have been considered by the planners at Winchester City Council as well as the Rural Housing Enabler and Parish Council. Two sites are considered to be suitable for affordable housing for local people. A summary of the comments on all of the sites will be on display.
We would welcome your views on the sites, and Winchester City Council, the Rural Housing Enabler and Hyde Housing Association will be present to answer any questions.
Please drop in and make your comments on this important and exciting development for the parish.
If you are in housing need and have a strong local connection to the parish, but have not yet registered your need with Winchester City Council, you can do so at the exhibition.
We look forward to seeing you there.
