Village Development Consultation

We have received the following press release from EHDC and we urge you to go along to this event.


Last development consultation takes in seven villages

Residents of seven East Hampshire villages will have the chance to say where they think new homes should be built in the last of a series of consultation events run by East Hampshire District Council.

The exhibition is being held for residents of Headley, Grayshott, Lindford, Kingsley, Binsted, Chawton and Shalden.

It will take place at Headley Village Hall, on 5 August, from 3.30-7pm. Residents will be able to see the location of sites that may come forward for future development in their villages and have their say on where the new houses should go and what community facilities might be needed.

Planners will be on hand to take comments and guide residents through the process. The council’s updated Joint Core Strategy, drawn up in partnership with the South Downs National Park, proposes a target of 10,060 new homes across East Hampshire by 2028.

Cllr Angela Glass, Portfolio Holder for Planning, said: “It is our aim to get the right homes in the right places and to do that we need to know about local needs and concerns. We hope local people will also come out in force to share their views.

“The council must identify enough sites to meet the demand for new homes. Most of these homes will be for people already living and working in the community. Therefore, it is vital we use events such as these to put together a housing plan for the future. “I’m sure the people of these villages are keen to see the plans for their areas and to have their say. Community input is invaluable to help shape future development.”
