Chawton Open Gardens 2015

Walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen at Chawton Village Open Gardens

On Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th June, the beloved village and home of Jane Austen, Chawton in Hampshire, will open its gardens.

The grounds of both Chawton House Library & Jane Austen's House Museum will open as well as up to 10 other charming village gardens.  You can also take a walk from Chawton to Farringdon – a walk that Jane is certainly to have taken on a regular basis.


South Alton - Response to Article 25 request

Alton Town Council has now received confirmation of the "calling in" under Article 25 of the South Alton planning application number 30012/056.

You can see the letter here on the Alton Town Council web site.

This was supported by Alton Town Council, Chawton Parish Council and Selbourne Parish Council


EHDC Planning Committee Disconnected from Reality ?

Chawton Parish council successfully lobbied to speak at the recent recent South Alton planning meeting that was to decide on "The largest development Alton has seen for 40 years" according to their chair, cclr Burridge.

Chawton Parish Council takes a balanced view on planning - some is necessary to support the growth of the country and control housing costs, but conversely it has to be "right" for the area and include a good balance of stock from affordable housing through to higher end housing - hence catering for the various needs of the community and it must include the right mix of services as well as houses - after all we all need schools, shops, water, electricity and the Internet for example.


Fireworks Feedback 2014

We hope everyone enjoyed the Village bonfire and fireworks on Sunday evening. This was the first time that we have had to take the decision to re-schedule due to the weather and it shows the power of the Web sites, social networks, personal networks and local radio.

We would like to hear your feedback, both good and bad, please take a minute or let us know your views, so that we can make any amendments to next years event.

For those who are interested, the reason for the unexpected small gap in the middle of the display was due to a couple of fireworks that had got a little damp and decided not to play ball. So, for all the planning, mother nature still shows who's in charge.
