THE final piece of the new road system being provided for developing Farnborough Business Park was put in jeopardy last week.

Hart's Development Control committee rejected the scheme to realign and upgrade Kennels Lane so as to provide a straight and modern connection between Ively Road and Summit Avenue.

The road realignment is accepted in both Rushmoor and Hart Local Plans and Hart planning officials had recommended approval of the scheme. Now a final decision will be made by Hart's full Council today (Thursday).

The decision to refuse was taken on ecology and nature conservation grounds. English Nature had objected - saying it would lead to loss of heathland.
