The Whitewater Valley Preservation Society has responded to a renewed public consultation on the Owen’s Farm planning application. Owen’s Farm is a proposed 700 house development West of Hook.
WVPS objects based on potential negative impacts on the environment of the River Whitewater and its valley. The Society is concerned about potential impacts on biodiversity, flood risk, landscape and degrading a rural footpath.
Furthermore, the Society is disappointed that Natural England has withdrawn its previous objection.
