Hartley Wintney Neighbourhood Plan

The purpose of this article is to share with you how your Neighbourhood Plan is progressing and to encourage YOU to give us your feedback. We’ll shortly be asking for your views so look out for our forthcoming questionnaire! Your feedback is particularly important as we need to have the views of as many Hartley Wintney parish residents as possible. In due course YOU will be invited to take part in a Referendum which will help shape how future housing developments will be assessed for the Parish.

 On May 3rd and May 5th 2016 two village focus groups were held with representation from local residents, local groups, societies and clubs. The purpose was for members of the Steering Group to provide a detailed update on the Neighbourhood Plan and it's current status and to enable a question and answer session to take place on the process being followed and approach taken together with an update on the sites identified for potential development.

First of all, thank you to all who attended our Drop in Day in March and for the feed back we have received about the sites which we were showing.
And it is worth repeating that the Steering Group have no part in choosing the sites we just assess them for future consideration and the whole community will get a chance later on in the process to show their willingness,

As I write we are still waiting for Hart's Housing Numbers and Site Allocation Consultation to be finalised. It was a shock when the previous consultation was withdrawn at the 11th hour and we are not the only community affected by the delay when it comes to working on our Plans.
 
We are continuing with working towards our goal however and are nearly ready to present the results of our villages site assessments so that you can all see what is involved. We are lucky that the previously agreed and long arranged sites at St Marys Park and Rifle Range Farm are contributing the lions share of what we expect our allocation to be with Monachus House also adding to the numbers.
 
To this end there will be another Drop In Day at the Methodist Church Hall on Sat 12th March, 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. when members of the Steering Group will be present to show plans and talk to you, answering your queries in particular. Please do come along so that you can be up to date with the emerging Plan.
 
In the meantime, don't forget to keep looking at this website which will tell you of all our progress.
