North East Hampshire

Spring / Summer 2018

Latest update from our district group in North East Hampshire. This update was produced for our twice yearly printed newsletter, Hampshire Views. Please check the rest of the News section of the website for more recent updates.

The two districts that cover North East Hampshire are Hart and Rushmoor.

The group has been working on CPRE responses to the several consultations on the Hart District Local Plans, which has now been submitted to the Inspectorate. We will be taking a keen interest in the forthcoming public hearing in the months to come.

Members have also been responding to local planning and other applications, including Bramshill House, Odiham Deer Park and Farnborough Airport Airspace issues.

In particular, we are delighted to report success with Odiham Deer Park after a three year fight to prevent housing development in this Conservation Area that is also a scheduled Local Gap between the villages of Odiham and North Warnborough. Planning proposals were refused by Hart District Council on 30 July 2018, backed by a 24-page report that put eight planning reasons into context for the delegated decision, with six months available to the private owner in which to appeal.

Hugh Sheppard co-led a Local Save the Park action group and published a ‘Heritage of Odiham’ digest for background information to supplement evidence of grounds to object. Our congratulations go to Hugh for such a wonderful result.

We are working closely with Branch office on ways in which we can raise the profile of the charity and increase our group membership, volunteers and committee. We are planning to hold an event in October which should appeal to our members – further details can be found in the forthcoming events section. Please do join us.

It has also been a time of change for the North East Hampshire District Group, with three of our long standing Committee Members retiring from post. Our sincere thanks and gratitude go to Chris James, Janet Martin and the aforementioned Hugh Sheppard, for all the contributions and hard work they have committed to the group – we shall miss you and wish you all the very best.
