Local Plan Update
New Forest District Council has announced important changes to the content of the draft revised Local Plan, which impact upon our village. Following greater analysis, the land to the west of Barnes Lane identified as “Site F” has been removed from the plan. The timetable for reporting and consultation has also changed. This is due to ongoing work to assess flood risks and air quality impacts on protected habitats. The new proposals go to the District Council’s Cabinet in December, with the final round of consultation on the revised plans presented in January 2018. However, this still may change and we will update you of any revisions.
