Hartley Wintney Neighbourhood Plan Referendum success

Braving the somewhat uncharitable weather, residents of Hartley Wintney voted overwhelmingly on the 7th October to support the proposals contained in the Neighbourhood Plan to shape future development in the Parish. In fact, 25% of those registered voted with 91.6% out of 1178 voting in favour of the Plan

Speaking about the referendum result, Chris Farrance, Chairman of Hartley Wintney Parish Council, said: “This is about actively engaging our community in the future of Hartley Wintney. I would like to warmly thank the members of our Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group for all their hard work, our consultant Liz Bourne and her team and the Parish Councillors for their support. A particular thanks to the many members of the community who engaged in the consultations that were carried out during the development of the Plan.’

The next and final step is for the Plan to be formally ‘made’ by Hart District Council after which they will be bound to take account of the Plan when considering planning applications that relate to the Parish.

Monday 7th October - The Referendum


The Neighbourhood Plan Referendum is now only a matter of days away. So, just to remind you Neighbourhood Plans give local communities more control over the type, location, size and design of development in their area. Once ratified by the community through a referendum, these Plans become part of the development plan for the area and must be taken into account when planning applications are determined.


At the voting booth you will be asked to respond to the question:

"Do you want Hart District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Hartley Wintney to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

At this stage, we are not permitted to influence you one way or another but it's worth noting that Winchfield scoed YES 294 NO 11 with a turnout of 61.2% for their plan. The results of the referendum should be available the day after voting takes place. The onus then lies with Hart to finalise the formalities which result in the Plan being 'made' which gives it its full legal force - this usually takes about 6 weeks and further updates will be given on this web site as appropriate.
