Formal planning applications have now been made for the Stubbington bypass and Newgate Lane South road improvement schemes, close to the Solent Enterprise Zone.
These two schemes represent an investment of approximately £39 million in to the area (£30 million and £9 million respectively) and form part of Hampshire’s wider plan for improving access to Fareham and Gosport. A huge amount of work has already been completed on Newgate Lane north and the A27 Western Way.
To get to this stage, Hampshire County Council has undergone extensive public consultations, comprehensive survey and detailed design work to ensure the exact location, scheme layout and mitigation measures will meet the original objectives; to ease congestion, improve safety, and improve the area’s economic prosperity.
Full planning applications have now been submitted to Hampshire County Council, through which members of the public will be invited to make their comments before a final decision on both schemes is made by the County Council’s Regulatory Committee later in the year.
