Current Planning Matters

Yateley Development


9 Dwellings at Mill Lane

There is no decision as yet on this planning application.



The developer has obtained planning permission to carry out an archaeological survey of the site where 150 new homes are planned. A Written Scheme of Investigation can be accessed on the Hart Planning web site. The document has been approved by the HCC archaeologist. This work has now been completed but nothing of great interest was found.


Two planning applications to date; one for access and design issues and the second for flood risk.


YDF Neighbourhood Plan

At the Steering Group meeting held at the Tythings on the 29th November, the main issues were as follows:-

We will continue going forwards with a Neighbourhood Development Plan (as opposed to an alternative.)

It was agreed to have a draft Vision of Yateley ready for presenting at the Councils Annual Meeting in March 2018. This will then be presented to the public at the May Fayre.


The next Steering Group meeting will be on the 16th January at the Monteagle Hall, Monteagle Lane (Waitrose), start time 19.30. Members of the public are welcome.


Blackbushe Airport

The Yateley Society, and many members separately, have sent their objections to Hampshire County Council Commons Registration Authority. The Registration Group has sent the documents to the Planning Inspectorate for resolution.


River Valley Lake

This lake, now divided into two sections, behind Hampshire Lakes Community Village is up for sale.


Motorbright & Gayton House

The Renaissance Group have submitted a pre-application to Hart Council for a proposed retirement homes development on the site currently occupied by Motorbrite and Gayton House. This  follows the public presentation at St peters church on the 1th November.


Yateley Lakes

A planning application (17/02909/FUL) has been made by the Farnham Angling Society to put a bridge over the River Blackwater so that they can access their car park on the Sandhurst side. Presumably they will also need permission from Bracknel Forest Council.


Hart Development


British Car Auctions

The inspector’s site visit that was to take place on the 8th November has been cancelled and the inspector has decided to set up a hearing. A public hearing will now take place on the 14th March 2018 at the Yateley Village Hall start time 10.00am.


Warbrook Lane

A full planning application has been submitted to build 12 new homes on the north side of Warbrook Lane, Eversley. This will involve demolishing the existing house, Four Seasons, residential caravan and other structures on the site.



An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) screening opinion has been sought for a 2,000 new home development at Winchfield. (This is contrary to the land having been excluded from the draft Local Plan.)


Hart Local Plan

It is expected that Hart Council will be publishing a new pre-submission Local Plan so that consultation will start in January 2018.
