SOLVE February 2016

Local Plan Consultation

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council (BDBC) launched what is hoped to be the last public consultation on the emerging Local Plan on 21st December. The closing date for comments is 4pm on Monday 8th February.

As with previous consultations, comments must be confined to, as the Council notice states:-

“Only those representations that refer to a specific change or supporting document, that are made in writing, and are received by the council within the consultation period will be considered.“

The relevant documents and details of how to respond can be found on the Council’s website at .
All the documents are available for public inspection at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Offices, London Road during normal opening hours. They will also be available for inspection at all public libraries in the Borough.

The Inspector’s final report is still expected in March 2016. It will be up to the Planning Inspector to set out his conclusions on the housing assessment. The changes proposed by the Council, largely at the instigation of the Inspector, do not significantly change the Local Plan housing strategy. SOLVE is therefore hopeful that the Inspector will accept the Local Plan housing numbers and sites. We can then move on and once the Plan is approved SOLVE will be working with Local Councillors in order to monitor the actions of BDBC and Developers.

SOLVE is very aware that the Hart Local Plan is proposing 730 houses to the west of Hook, very close to the village of Newnham, posing yet another threat to the Countryside.
