The Parish Council discussed the proposed Coop Distribution Centre on the Andover Airfield Site. It was felt that although this will be a smaller development and smaller lorries are used it will still have an impact on traffic movements on the A303.
Residents have noticed that the noise from the A303 has increased dramatically and in certain places in the village its very intrusive. The Chairman had written to Cllr Tim Southern on this matter and has received further correspondence on this matter from Sir George Young.
The Chairman reported that a new Planning Application for a Showman’s Site has been submitted. Richard Atkinson-Willes is organising a petition against the Showman’s Site, The Clerk reported that in the past the Borough Councillors have always said that in Planning Terms a petition is only classed as one objection, they have always recommended that individual letters are written. Cllr Mrs Ferguson will pass this on to Richard Atkinson-Willes. The Parish Council object to this Planning Application and will join the fight to get it stopped.
The Clerk will write to Testway Housing and Test Valley Borough Council to ask about the provision of allotments in Quarley.
