Revision 8 of the Neighbourhood Plan is now available and can be accessed from here


This version was approved by the Parish Council at their meeting on July 3rd. The next step is to initiate the required follow up actions with Hart District Council and this is now underway. There will also be a Neighbourhood Plan stand at Culture on the Common on July 30th where members of the Steering Group will be available to discuss the plan and future activities.

The minutes of the Steering Group meeting held on 14th June are now available for viewing. They can be accessed from the Meeting Minutes section of the Library tab.

Following reviews at both the Parish Council and Planning and Infrastucture Committee meetings during May a revised approach on proposed sites has now been agreed and as a result Revision 8 of the Plan is now in development.

It is expected that this version will be completed by 9th June and a Steering Group meeting has been scheduled to formally review it on the 14th June followed by review with the Parish Council in early July. More information will be available over the coming weeks.

The latest version of the Neighbourhood Plan was discussed at the full Parish Council meeting on 3rd April 2017 and as a result the Plan needs additional changes to be made. The background to this follows:

This version (version 7) recommended to the Parish Council that although the village has recently been given a zero housing allocation from Hart that the proposed development for 40 dwellings at Wintney Court should remain as a supported site in the plan as this site has a number of benefits including that the mix of dwellings proposed would meet the needs as identified through the village consultations. All other previously proposed sites were changed to a reserve status in case of further development being needed during the plan period up to 2032. It was also recommended by our Planning Consultant and agreed to by the Steering Group that the inclusion of a single site should be made to minimise the risks that going forward with a zero allocation might incur.

The Neighbourhood Plan has moved forward significantly over the last few months.

Regular updates are being made and are available in the Village Communications section of this website
