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).
Current planning applications for this parish can also be viewed on the Planning Tracker page of this website. Please note. The Planning Tracker page is a central facility provided to Parish Council websites, which is driven by postcode. Care if the application is submitted and processed without a postcode it will not appear on the planning tracker page.
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.
