Stubbington bypass

Fareham Planning Application - Stubbington Bypass - click for larger image

Hampshire County Council, following public consultation events in the summers of 2013 and 2014, have identified and submitted an application (Planning application No. P/15/0718/CC ) for their preferred route for the Stubbington bypass having appraised nine alternatives. (details are available by clicking on this link).

The Bypass is to be routed from the B3334 Gosport Road to the south connecting to the B3334 Titchfield Road to the north west, linking to each via a new roundabout junction.

The proposed development at Newlands falls within Hampshire County Council's preferred route of the bypass. HLM propose to provide some of the necessary land (i.e. within the application boundary) for the Bypass and as appropriate through private funding secured through the development, build an initial section or phase of this important link within land they control. This will involve the construction of the bypass from Gosport Road in the south to a point approximately 160 metres to the east of Peak Lane in the north. Provision will be made to allow the Bypass to be extended to Peak Lane and on to Titchfield Road so that Hampshire County Council can achieve their aspirations of a full bypass link in the future. Until such time as the bypass may be completed the route is proposed to link through the Newlands development to Peak Lane.

The carriageway will comprise of a single carriageway with a footway and cycleway alongside the northern carriageway. To the south the bypass will be framed and screened by hedge and tree planting set back from the road via a wide grassed verge. To the north a mosaic of habitats, through which the footway / cycleway will be routed, provide a varied and attractive transition between the Bypass and development.

Following negotiations with Hampshire County Council with regards to the route that can be delivered by HLM the number of access points proposed from the bypass to serve Newlands has been reduced from three to one in order to address concerns regarding road safety and to maintain the links primary function as a Bypass for locally strategic traffic and that from the Daedalus Enterprise Zone.
