Residents who made representations about the draft Local Plan in the Spring of 2001 will have recently received a letter from the City Council about the revised version. Copies of the plan can be seen at Local Services Reception, Civic Centre, at public libraries and also on the web at www.southampton.gov.uk. Representations on the changes can be made up to 11th April.

The issue closest to us is the removal of the land at Stoneham south of the M27 from the Strategic Gap. The land on either side of Stoneham Lane up to the City boundary with Eastleigh is reserved for a park-and-ride scheme. In the north-east part of this site, there could be a bus depot to replace the one at Portswood which would be used for housing.
