Yateley bids for neighbourhood status in Hart District Council public consultation

Yateley is a thriving town in North East Hampshire with a pretty village green. Complete with neighbouring areas Frogmore and Darby Green, it is home to over 20,000 local residents.

Yateley Town Council is currently seeking permission from Hart District Council for the whole area to be designated as a ‘neighbourhood area’. This will enable them to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for Yateley.

Neighbourhood plans help shape future development

Neighbourhood Plans are a hot topic at the moment. They are an important part of the development of our local area, particularly when it comes to planning. Hart District Council ran a consultation last year on their ‘Hart Local Plan: Strategy and Sites 2016 – 2032’ which looks at policies and sites for development for the next few years. Their latest version goes out to public consultation next month.

Developing a Neighbourhood Plan allows local communities to play a greater role in determining the future of their area. If approved and adopted they become a statutory document. They must be taken into account when planning applications are submitted either by individuals or developers. Areas such as Hartley Wintney have already developed their own neighbourhood plan and Yateley are looking to do the same.

Have your say

The consultation on Yateley’s application is open until 4pm on Monday 12 February. You can view the proposed area online, and submit comments by email to neighbourhoodplanning@hart.gov.uk or by post to Neighbourhood Planning, Corporate Policy, Civic Offices, Harlington Way, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 4AE.

As local estate agents, we are proud to have helped customers in Yateley sell their properties over the past few years. One happy couple, Mr & Mrs Candlish said:

“Highly recommend these guys, after a very stressful time trying to sell our place with a popular local high street estate agent. We decided to ask Check Houses to sell our place. They were friendly, accommodating & professional.

They got the job done extremely quickly and we have exchanged in less than 3 months with limited fuss!

Check 4 Houses have reinstalled my trust in the process. They have made moving ‘this time’ a much more pleasurable experience! I cannot recommend them enough!”
