Have your say on the East Woodhay Neighbourhood Plan

News release 10233, published on 27 Jul 2022
Local people are being invited to give their views on the East Woodhay Neighbourhood Plan. 
The plan sets out a vision for East Woodhay and includes proposed planning policies which once adopted will be used to determine planning applications locally and guide development in the parish until 2029.  
This is the second time Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has consulted on the plan which was developed by East Woodhay Parish Council with involvement from the local community. The plan was first consulted on in March but further work was requested by the Neighbourhood Plan examiner to consider the impact on protected nature conservation sites in the Solent.
A small part of the parish is within the catchment of the River Test. The borough council has undertaken some further work to demonstrate that the plan would not have a harmful impact upon those protected habitats and changed one of the policies in the plan relating to this.  
Cabinet Member for Planning and Infrastructure Cllr Jay Ganesh said: “People in East Woodhay have a second chance to have their say on the draft neighbourhood plan following some additional work carried out by the borough council at the request of the Neighbourhood Plan examiner.
“If you have already given your views they will still be considered by the examiner but this is another opportunity to help set out a local vision for East Woodhay, including planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally.”
People can view the plan online or at listed locations in the borough. Views can be given online, by email or by post until 4pm on Monday 5 September.  
Any comments made in response to the council’s first consultation earlier this year will still be considered by the examiner and it is not necessary for respondents to repeat those comments.
