The Wessex Conference Centre at Sparsholt College, Winchester was full for a conference on Neighbourhood Planning held on 5th October 2017 and organised by CPRE Hampshire (the Campaign to Protect Rural England).

‘Planning our future – what are the best options for local communities?’ attracted a mix of individuals and groups representing communities at all levels of local government, from parish to county. Most delegates were about to start or considering how to approach developing a Neighbourhood Plan or alternative planning solution for their area. 

CPRE Hampshire Chief Executive, Charlee Bennett said: “We had a brilliant morning at Sparsholt College with 34 parish councils as well as district, borough and county representation from across Hampshire, joining us to have an honest conversation about how best to plan for their areas.

One of the highlights was Ann Skippers who gave an Examiner’s perspective on Neighbourhood Plans and her top tips on how to be successful at examination - vital information if you've been working on your plan for over two years! Thank you to Hampshire County Council for making the conference possible.”
