HART'S Development Control committee has decided to renew planning permission to knock down a large house in Elvetham Road, Fleet, and replace it with four detached homes. This was despite a recommendation from officers to refuse on the grounds that not enough houses were being put on the site. The policy has changed since the plans were first agreed in 1995 and renewed in 1998. But the committee agreed that some affordable housing should be included and a legal agreement will be required to cover that. The house to be demolished, Lingfield, is currently divided into seven flats.
