We need your thoughts! Please read these attached documents and come along to give us your thoughts on our proposed site selection (Can't read it clearly? Try opening the pdf document below).









































What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

It is a document which shapes where we live by stating the Vision, Objectives and Policies for all future Planning Applications in the Parish.  It is being written following consultation with members of the Parish over the last few years and is an opportunity to influence what happens next. Key documents relating to the Highclere Parish Neighbourhood Plan can be found towards the bottom of this page.  You can also click the button below to see our Village Design Statement

Why is the Neighbourhood Plan important?

It influences development – where new buildings should be placed and what they might look like. 

It seeks to ensure that any new development reflects community needs.

It helps to maintain the rural character of the Parish and protect Green Space areas.

It facilitates access to funds for the Parish from developers – funds that can be used for our schools and for projects within the Parish.

Will it affect future Planning applications?

Yes, it is a planning document with legal standing. Planning applications will have to take account of the policies contained within the Neighbourhood Plan (once it has been approved at referendum).
