Current Planning Policy Consultations

Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 16 (Submission) Consultation

The council are currently consulting on the submission Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Neighbourhood Plan until Monday 19 December 2022.

The Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally and guide development in the parish up until 2039.

There has been a previous public consultation on the draft Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Neighbourhood Plan organised by Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Parish Council during summer 2022. Now that the Plan has been submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council it is the final opportunity to have your say on this document before it is considered at an independent examination.

More information and details of how to comment can be found on Ecchinswell, Sydmonton and Bishops Green Neighbourhood Plan webpage.

Call for Sites

The council undertook a Call for Sites consultation which closed in July 2019. This consultation asked for developers, landowners or other interested parties to let us know about sites that could be suitable for residential, employment or other development.

Whilst the formal 'Call for Sites' consultation has now closed, the council welcomes all site submissions and details of all sites submitted will be placed on file for a future review of the SHELAA. The submission form and corresponding guidance note remains available by clicking on the link below.
