South Alton Plan B

Following the recent developer led South Alton development proposal, an alternative non-developer led "Plan B" has been generated that covers housing, traffic and the Sport Centre, in what appears to be a far more sustainable manner.

Details can be found here on the web site. You may wish to provide your feedback on their alternative plan.


A31 Chawton roundabout resurfacing

A31 Chawton Roundabout – Carriageway Resurfacing

Hampshire County Council is currently carrying out a variety of maintenance treatments based around extending the resilience and life of the road network. Operation Resilience is essentially an investment in Hampshire’s roads for the long term, marking a substantial shift in emphasis from reactive to planned maintenance – which is much more cost effective in the long run, making them more resilient to the effects of extreme weather, such as snow and ice, and increasingly heavy traffic.

As part of Operation Resilience, Hampshire County Council will be undertaking carriageway resurfacing works on A31 Chawton Roundabout.

Facilitating works for the contra-flow traffic management are near completion (8th August)


South Alton Development Proposal

A developer has published their South Alton Proposals which includes some public consultation on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May.

Significant parts of the proposal include the relocation of the Sports Centre to the Chawton Gap Triangle, changes to the Butts Bridge and significant numbers of additional housing in the local area - see

For more information, see

Its unclear at this time what level of consultation / support exists between Alton Town Council and/or East Hampshire District Council or not. Please note that this is not an official planning application at this point in time.
