A CONSTRUCTION services company has lodged a retrospective application after it redeveloped its site to meet “pressures and demands”.

Nelson Plant Hire, based at Homestead Farm, in Weyhill Road, submitted a proposal to Hampshire County Council as part of a plan to improve its offerings.

The firm has partially enclosed its picking station, relocated its skip storage area and car parking.

But it is also proposing for a “small scale” extension on its existing waste transfer building, which has yet to be constructed.

The plan states: “The need for the development is entirely responsive to the pressures and demands placed upon the business resulting from its continued growth. However, the proposal remains entirely within the established and approved waste transfer site.”

The company has said that much of the work has already been carried out to “to ensure the business can continue to grow as demand dictates”.

If given the go-ahead, the extension to the waste transfer building will allow for the replacement of the existing structure which is in a “poor state of repair”.

To view the application, go to hants.gov.uk/landplanningandenvironment/strategic-planning and view applications open for consultation by January 14.
