Stop the Hamble Gravel Pit

Ten years ago, Hampshire County Council made the decision that Hamble Airfield should be used for gravel extraction. Extracting gravel from the site would mean, at peak times, an extra lorry every four minutes, for at least fifteen years. That's fifteen years of increased noise, increased pollution, and increased congestion.

What's more, Hampshire County Council have failed as Highways Authority to use their powers to block new housing applications along Hamble Lane - even though they could! They've left it up to the Lib Dems and Eastleigh Borough Council to fight plans for over-development of the Hamble Peninsula.

I – and your local Lib Dems – are asking Hampshire County Council to think again, and scrap their plans to turn Hamble Airfield into a gravel pit, before it's too late.

If you agree, please add your voice to our campaign by signing below.

We, the undersigned, call on Hampshire County Council to scrap plans for gravel extraction at Hamble Airfield, and to block housing applications that would put even more traffic on to Hamble Lane.
