Manydown planning application
The council received an application for outline planning permission for land at Manydown in 2017. The application was made in relation to land allocated for development under Policy SS3.10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011 to 2029. It does not cover the entire allocation. The application seeks approval of the principle of development and the primary means of vehicular access to the site.
The applicants, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, submitted changes to the application in response to feedback, leading to further planning consultation periods. You can view all comments on the planning application (reference 17/00818/OUT).
The borough council’s Development Control Committee was due to meet on Tuesday 24 March 2020 to consider the outline application. However, based on the advice on social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak, the decision was taken to postpone all scheduled meetings at the current time to protect the safety of councillors, officers and members of the public who would ordinarily wish to attend.
A separate planning application was received for advanced planting of approximately 4.5ha of new habitat and the reinforcement of existing habitat with associated ground works and agriculture field drainage, providing alternative ecological and landscape mitigation for the Manydown outline planning application. This application can be viewed under reference 19/02649/FUL. This has been approved.
