Blendworth Lane Car Park & Toilets

 

   The current indications are that despite numerous objections received from residents, the proposal to sell off the land to developers remains the likely outcome. 

The Parish Council is urging residents to come together and campaign against the disposal of vital parking spaces/WC’s, before it is too late.

EHDC has monitored the usage of the facilities, and the figures do not appear to represent the number of visitors observed as using the site.

Councillors are proposing to personally monitor usage and record accordingly, and to this end it is suggested that residents may wish to undertake the same in order to ensure fair representation of the facts.

The Local Plan

The Local Plan consultation is launched!

Local Plan Map
Now is your chance to shape the future of where you live as the Local Plan consultation is launched.

The six-week consultation period will begin on Tuesday 5 February and will give you the chance to comment on policies covering housing, employment, infrastructure and the environment.

Ten drop-in sessions are being planned around the district where residents will be able to talk to experts and find out more about the proposals. Residents can then submit comments online using the council’s website.

The plan only covers areas in East Hampshire outside the South Downs National Park - less than half the district. This includes Alton and the surrounding area as well as Whitehill & Bordon and the southern parishes of Horndean, Clanfield and Rowlands Castle. The drop-in sessions will all be held in those areas.

Information will also be available on the best way to try to make changes to the plan.


How to make your comment count:


Try to make sure your comment includes new facts or information that has not already been taken into account by the planning team.


Petitions or multiple copies of a letter will not add extra strength to the points it makes. If the comment is relevant it does not matter how many times it is repeated.


Try to refer to the relevant policy number so the planning team can match your comment to the right part of the plan.


Concentrate on planning issues – local knowledge is invaluable but non-planning issues, such as disruption during construction or local property prices cannot be taken into account.


Don’t be afraid to say yes to anything you agree with. If someone else objects and there is no evidence of public support, it could be changed.

Footpath Closures

What is a Definitive Map?

Each highway authority keeps a Definitive Map and Statement of all public rights of way - the formal legal record of the existence of footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic. In total it offers more than 137,000 miles of public footpath, bridleway and byway providing a level of access admired throughout the world.

Please see the map at the link below with contact details of which authority to report issues to:
