Update: North East Hampshire District Group

26th March 2020

News from North East Hampshire

Thankfully the long drawn out saga of the Hart District Local Plan, although further delayed due to the cancellation of Hart District Council meetings, is coming to an end and we hope that it will be adopted very soon. The Inspector objected to Hart’s plans for a new town at Shapley Heath in Winchfield and it was removed from the plan.

Sadly, Hart District Council is continuing to spend a lot of money on investigating the possibilities of this development of 5,000 and maybe more dwellings (between two and four times the size of the existing Elvetham Heath development) and we are gearing ourselves for a long fight. There is more information on the Shapley Heath Garden Village on the Winchfield Parish Council website. Also see, Shapley Heath – the Developer’s Plan pdf from a Winchfield based group Shapley Heath – the Developer’s Plan

We gave a presentation to Hartley Wintney U3A which was well received.

Philip Todd attended an Inquiry and spoke against the Cross Farm Care Home project in Crookham Village which has now been dismissed by the Inspector.

Hugh Sheppard continues to represent us and CPRE Hampshire on aviation matters including the Farnborough airspace issues.

We remain vigilant and our planning team meets on a regular basis to monitor development proposals in the district.

Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved with the group.
