In September 2019, the Dogmersfield Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by Hart District Council.
Neighbourhood Planning enables communities to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for their area and is intended to give communities more of a say in the development of their local area (within certain limits and parameters).
These plans will be used to decide the future of the places where you live and work giving opportunities to:
- choose where you want new homes, shops and offices to be built
- have your say on what new buildings should look like
- grant planning permission for the new buildings you want to see go ahead.
A neighbourhood plan must go through a specified process before it can be ‘made’ (adopted). This process includes the need for consultation, consideration by an independent examiner and a public referendum.
Once a neighbourhood plan meets all the requirements and has been adopted, it will form part of the development plan for Hart and will be a consideration in the determination of planning applications.
For more information on Neighbourhood Planning, please visit the Hart District Council website.
