Planning Matters

Since the Society’s inception in 1986 we have taken an active role in local planning issues. More recently, Trustees and members of the Society were actively involved in the Neighbourhood Plan put together by the Parish Council in 2013-2015 and in the subsequent Bishops Waltham Village Design Statement published in 2016. Three people who worked on these documents now form our Planning Committee.

 

During 2018/2019, the Society has responded to the following Planning Applications:

All these, as well as previous pieces of correspondence on these applications, can be found on Winchester City Council’s planning website. A ‘Simple Search’ using the associated application number will take you to a page that enables you to click on ‘Documents’ which are then available, uploaded (usually) in date order.
