Dibden Purlieu residents still oppose AJC's homes plan for Noads Way, NFDC told
A REDUCED plan to build 25 new homes in Dibden Purlieu has been submitted to New Forest District Council.
The AJC Group had to go back to the drawing board after its initial bid for 40 homes in Noads Way was refused.
Despite reducing the number of houses, the AJC Group's latest proposal has still generated 36 objections from residents.
One Noads Way resident wrote: "To accept this current application from AJC would more than triple the housing density typical of this area.
"This proposal is grossly out of keeping with the character of the area. I am surprised that AJC appear to believe that this is an acceptable application."
Another said: "No recognition has been made of the additional pressure which such a large development of comparatively less expensive housing will place upon the local infant and junior schools.
"The traffic movements and volume of vehicles is also understated."
A resident of Peartree Road told the council: "Given the volume of housing proposed, the additional number of cars and vehicle movements would inevitably spill over into the surrounding area.
"Residents of Peartree Road and Orchard Way already suffer the brunt of inconsiderate parking of parents of children of the local schools and the staff that work there, please don't further add to the misery."
The scheme, which does not include any affordable homes, was defended by AJC's planning director Simon McFarlane.
He said: "We feel Noads Way is a great site for the provision of two to three-bedroom properties, and some four-bedroom properties, which will make use of a previously developed site.
"We feel that the 25 dwellings we have now proposed to build are respectful of the area."
