Additional information had been received in response to consultation and neighbour comments received and to provide further information on the operation and maintenance of the waste water treatment works, as well as additional landscape visuals and revised landscaping details.
A number of additional consultation responses had been received from Landscape, Environmental Health, Botley Parish Council, Hamble Parish Council, Solent Protection Society and Botley Parish Action Group.
