Housing development

Hart Council launch major consultation on planning options

Hart District Council has launched a major consultation inviting views on what approach they should take in delivering the required number of new homes in our area up to 2032.

Debates over housing development options have been ongoing for many years, including most recently some heated debate about a proposal to build a new settlement of up to 5,000 homes near Winchfield.

The Council has now published 3 new documents providing background detail on what types of housing may be required and what approaches are available for their delivery, as well as  more detail on which particular sites may be suitable.

Cllr Stephen Parker, Leader of Hart District Council, said:

“I urge local residents and community groups to take part in this Local Plan consultation. To help you, we are producing a summary leaflet shortly to help you make your comments, this supplements the 3 documents that accompany this consultation which provide the best information. We really want to hear the communities and residents views, as this is a real opportunity for the people of Hart to help shape the development of our district for the future decades.”

The consultation documents are available at www.hart.gov.uk/consultations.  Residents are invited to use the online survey via www.hart.gov.uk/local-plan-consultation to give their feedback.

The consultation is open until 15 January 2016 so now is the time to have your say about future development in our area.
