The Highclere Parish Council (HPC) plays an active part in all local planning issues. It is probably the area of the Council's role that is best known to the community and which can be of the most importance.
All planning applications are posted online by the Local Planning Authority, Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council and can easily be searched for on that website by keyword, reference number, postcode or single line of an address (see example 'Simple Search' screenshot below).
Highclere Parish Council has a Planning Committee which considers all new applications (see Planning Protocol attachment below for details). Any planning applications of key interest to the Parish will be highlighted on the News or Community Engagement pages.
