Winter 2024

2024 is shaping up to be a busy year for planning. Both East Hants District Council (EHDC) and South Downs National Park (SDNP) are updating their Local Plans – and EHDC’s draft Plan (here) includes three large developments in our parish, including 1,000 new houses at Neathan Manor Down. EHDC’s consultation on the draft Plan runs from 22 January until 4 March, and five public events are being held during the consultation, including:

Whitehill & Bordon Forest Community Centre, Thursday 1 Feb 15:30 – 19:30.

The Maltings, Alton, Saturday 3 Feb 10:00 – 14:00

The Millennium Centre at Liphook, Wed 7 Feb 15:30 – 19:30.

We also anticipate significant planning applications being brought forward for Birdworld, Blacknest Golf course and other sites. Keep an eye on our Planning Consultations page for updates.

Do give your views on these planning proposals, and attend one of EHDC’s Local Plan consultation events if you can. If you have a professional background in planning and could potentially help the Parish Council with its planning work, please get in touch for a chat – we’d love to hear from you!
