A planning inspector has supported Hart Councils refusal for planning permission to build 48 new homes at Hop Garden Road in Hook. There are some similarities with the Urnfield development. What is encouraging is the inspector's view that Hart has identified a 5 year supply of housing land. Most developers. when appealing, are basing their appeal on Hart not meeting its 5 year land supply target. This decision is, therefore, very significant. Hart Council has advised Welbeck Strategic … [Read More...]

Montagu Evans, on behalf of their Client Welbeck Land Llp, has written to the Planning Inspectorate to appeal the decision by Hart District Council to refuse planning permission for 150 new homes on the Urnfield. Unfortunately this now takes the decision away from the local area and places it firmly in the hands of unelected bureaucrats. The plus side is at least all evidence will be heard and we can hope for an independent and unbiased judgement. Before the appeal will be allowed … [Read More...]

Pre application advice is being sought from Hart District Council for a 320 home development at the former Sun Park at Guillemont Barracks.

Part of the site is within the SPA 400m exclusion zone so it will be interesting to discover how the authorities interpret the definition of the exclusion zone taking a precautionary approach. … [Read More...]
The Secretary of State has decided not to call in the planning application for 126 homes at Hawley Park Farm and has formally withdrawn the Section 25 holding notice. There is nothing now, presumably, stopping the Council to formally grant planning permission. A very regrettable decision but I suppose it should have been foreseen. As this development will take the total number of homes in the SPA zone of influence above the 'Cap' then it can be argued that a new Appropriate Assessment should … [Read More...]
Notes from a volunteers diary. Our job today was to rake up the floating pennywort for disposal. To gain access to the boggy area Ian needed to cut down the fallen trees that were blocking our way. We split into two groups: one helping Ian to remove the trees and the other group concentrated on raking and removing as much of the wed as possible onto the path for disposal. It was a rewarding task and it will need repeating to try and get the weed under control and to help minimise it spreading … [Read More...]
