We have very recently received the examiners report for the Winchfield Neighbourhood Plan. The full report hermes bags sale

The examiner was very complimentary about the plan and approved it to move to the next stage. He did suggest a number of amendments and alterations in wording. I would suggest you have a read of the document and familiarise yourselves with these

Now that the plan has passed examination we can move on to the next stage in the process:

  • The examiners modifications will be input to the document
  • The plan will go to Hart Cabinet and Council in December.
  • The document will then be sent out on a referendum to the residents of Winchfield in the New Year

As with most referenda the question on the table will simply be a binary choice ‘Do you accept the Winchfield Neighbourhood Plan as written?” (Final wording to be determined). The referendum will be held on a day to be determined in the future and it will pass (or fail) according to the wishes of the majority of those who vote. The examiner has recommended that eligible voters be only those in the Winchfield local area and the Parish Council will determine who those people are and manage that whole process.

Once the referendum is carried out and the plan accepted it will become the document of record to control development in the Winchfield area for the forseeable future. All planning decisions within the parish will be measured against the policies and statements made in the plan and any that do not meet the prescribed standards will be rejected.

As Andrew Renshaw – Chairman of the Winchfield Parish Council – has said “It is all very good news. For now, I want to thank everyone for all your work on the Winchfield NP and for getting such a glowing report from the Examiner. The whole community owes you a great debt of gratitude for your endeavours.

The questionnaire results are out.

The questionnaire results are out.

Hart District Council has released the Red bottoms mens online store which they carried out earlier this year.

Under its mandate to be more transparent they have released both a Christian Louboutin mens outlet store as well as the full details for each question. (Note that these responses relate to the second consultation which was run in March of this year, NOT the initial consultation which they abandoned 24 hours prior to the closing date)

A cursory glance at the 264 page document which lists all the answers supplied for Question 4 of the consultation “Of the 3 possible approaches that could deliver new homes in Hart, which one should we prioritise to deliver the majority of our housing needs? Please provide further comments below” indicates that opinion is split evenly between those who think Winchfield is the ideal location and those we believe that Winchfield should not. As usual there is a lot of misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about what is being proposed and what could be provided A frequent comment made in the responses relates to the provision of adequate infrastructure. This is mentioned in relation both to the Winchfield proposal AND to other proposals. Several supporters of the Winchfield New Town have stated that this option would provide the most infrastructure, however as we know this is not a given (“Winchfield has the necessary existing infrastructure of major road and rail to support a new development,Fleet has not!”). We also know that Hart Council has an infrastructure funding deficit which will only increase if Winchfield is chosen as the new option. Mention is also made in many comments about the need for a secondary school. As we have already mentioned Christian Louboutin boots online authentic and on Christian Louboutin pumps outlet shop , the provision of secondary schools is a county council matter not a district council matter. Schools are built according to the need NOT according to the size of a single development. In addition they’re usually built AFTER development has occurred and not as part of a development.

One positive point to bear in mind is that with the announcement of Pystock as a brownfield development for housing rather than commercial usage, the additional 1700 houses coming from that project will virtually remove the need for a new town in Winchfield.

If you have several hours free please have a look at the Red bottoms heels replica price . A lot of the comments make interesting (if misinformed) reading.

We have particular concerns about  the risk that developers will delay developing brownfield sites because local authorities will be required to release more profitable greenfield sites if insufficient housing is delivered to meet local needs

Hopefully with the announcement that Hart District Council have been involved with helping promote the 1500 dwelling site at Pystock, and the fact that they are now planning to launch a study to give a strategic overview of the brownfield capacity in the District, this is not something we will see here.

The Parish Council letterFor those of you who live in Winchfield (and for those of you who are interested in this but don’t live in Winchfield) here is a quick progress report regarding the Winchfield neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).

The committee working on the NDP have created their pre-submission version of the plan. This means that they have followed the process to such a point that they have a completed document which is ready for a wider review.

This review is known as the pre-submission consultation. A letter regarding this was distributed to all Winchfield residents on Friday (Copy above)

At this point in the process the document needs a review with comments from residents and interested parties.Once these comments have been received they will be incorporated into the document and this will then be submitted to the next step in the process.

Now that Hart District Council’s second Local Plan consultation is complete (and we await the outcome of that with bated breath), we would like to ask you to do the following:

  1. Click on Prada backpack online official to go to the on-line version of the document.
  2. Review the contents and make any comments, positive or negative, to the Winchfield Parish Council.
  3. Any representation you wish to make must be in writing and sent to the parish clerk at either the address on the top of the letter above or by email to [email protected] All comments must be received by midnight April 29, 2016.

If you don’t want to have to read through the document on your computer there are hard copies (beautifully designed and printed, if I may say so) at The Winchfield Inn, The Barley Mow and Winchfield Parish Hall.

This is an important document for Winchfield. It will control how development is managed within the parish and will be a legally binding document that developers will have to abide by when making planning applications. It covers items such as dwelling density, parking spaces, garden space, style of houses, maximum height of buildings and numerous other conditions that must be met before a development can begin. It applies to large-scale development, medium-scale development and even down to an individual building his or her own house in an in-fill gap in the village.

It is vitally important that residents of the parish are aware of and comfortable with this document as they will be asked to vote in a referendum to adopt it later in the year.

We would encourage you to take a few hours to read through the document and send in your thoughts.

One of our members – Bill Fraser – has family that live in Western Canada and often come and visit Winchfield.

On hearing the council’s plans to over-develop Winchfield by adding 5000 houses in a new town Bill’s brother, John, felt compelled to put his thoughts down for everyone to see.

I reproduce them here with permission:


Our family live in British Columbia, Canada, but have often visited relatives in Winchfield.

Perhaps unsurprisingly from our viewpoint it seems that the south of England is over populated and overbuilt already! But it also makes us wonder if the need for yet more housing has been lost in the larger picture.

London and the surrounding area (like Vancouver B.C.) requires affordable housing. However in British Columbia there is an what is called an “Agricultural Land Reserve” (ALR) that surrounds Vancouver. The ALR is land that has been set aside as farm or potential farmland, and because of its value to food production, no other use is permitted – housing developments included. The result has been that over the years despite growing rapidly Vancouver has been unable to expand outwards. Instead it has has solved the problem by building vertically, leading to an iconic skyline of tall buildings.

The options in the local plan submission appear to presuppose a need to build in rural areas. It doesn’t open the other debate over whether this area has more value as rural farmland. It also seems to ignore the larger question of whether London and other large municipalities should themselves increase housing density within their jurisdiction instead of offloading the responsibility to surrounding areas.

Creating new high density housing in a rural area is more than a planning issue, it is a social, economic and environmental experiment. The negative consequences may not be realised until years or decades have passed at which time it is too late to turn back. Basically to an outsider this is a poor idea, and has the appearance of short term development profits being allowed to overrule good sense or the desires of local residents. The developer having built will move on, but the community unfortunately will have to live with the results into perpetuity.

If local housing is required, then it should be confined to established urban areas. Commuting distances in Britain are short, and needed infrastructure already exists in larger centres. There is no need to build out into the surrounding rural areas making bedroom communities. This is the mistake still made in too many North American cities. The difference being that there is a lot more real estate here. English cities are well equipped to deal with the impacts that follow increases in population. Not so much the rural areas.

As a bystander, it is easy to imagine this is a worry for local people. This is not a proposal to build one or two houses – and despite the plan to build in stages, it is not organic growth. This is a mega project that will alter the character and nature of local communities forever, and probably not for the better. Radical changes are seldom without problems, and this appears to be radical change with little upside, but a huge potential for unforeseen pitfalls on every level, from social issues to an expectation of insufficient services. Development is usually done at the lowest cost to the developer.

If there is strong local opposition to this plan, that opposition has to be listened to.
By going ahead when a community is totally against development requires more than planning permission, it also requires social license. From the amount of push back from the community, it appears that license is missing.

We hope that good sense prevails.

Our thanks to john for taking the time to pen those relevant thoughts.

As a reminder: The new Consultation closes on Mar 18th and it is vital that we all respond to it as soon as possible, and certainly before the closing date..

If you responded to the old Consultation then you can instruct Hart to use your previous response by filling in the form you will find Prada store

If you didn’t respond to the old Consultation then you need to fill in the questionnaire that you will find Prada purse online official . Just to remind you in Question 4 we recommend that Approach 1 is Priority 1, Approach 2 is Priority 2 and Approach 3 is Priority 3. In Question 5 we recommend that Approach 4 is Priority 1. The priorities of the remaining Approaches is not important.

If we were to accept that Rushmoor and Surrey Heath will only be able to accommodate half their housing need, Hart could be looking at four new settlements of 5,000 homes or one of 20,000 homes. A single ‘garden community’ would be futile. All three authorities need to work together to maximise brownfield development and sustainability to prevent a nightmare scenario.

via Prada bags online 2015 .

Our good friends at the Campaign to Protect Rural England have come out strongly against the proposal of a new town in Winchfield. They quote statistics – which we agree with – indicating that Hart is basing its housing requirements on inaccurate, incorrect and outdated figures.

They have even commissioned a report “Prada evening sale shop ” which you can download and read.

Incidentally the inaccurate figures were identified several months ago by an independent planning consultant and described in several posts on the We Heart Hart website, so these revelations are not new to us.
