The Bramshott and Liphook Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) committee will be holding its second public exhibition tomorrow (Friday)and Saturday.

It is inviting members of the community to view and comment on draft policies which have been developed by its steering group members and working parties over the past year.

The drop-in event takes place at the Millennium Centre, Ontario Way, tomorrow from 10am to 4.30pm and on Saturday from 9.30am to 2pm.

It includes presentations as well as reading material from working parties covering topics such as sports and recreation, access and movement, housing, community, public services, employment as well as heritage and design.

The aim is to gather comments from a wide representation of the community and to develop and shape these into a coherent vision for the future of the parish.

NDP vice-chair Chantal Foo is urging parishioners to go along and have their say in what happens in their community.

She said: "This is a vital point in the process for the residents of our parish to see the extent of work carried out to date, to have their say on the draft vision and planning policies, and to provide further essential feedback to assist with the development of the neighbourhood plan.

"We hope to have as many attendees and as much feedback as possible from the event. Consultation comments can also be made online from tomorrow until Friday, March 1."

Richard Eastham from Feria Urbanism, the consultant for Bramshott and Liphook’s NDP, is due to compile feedback received by the steering group.

The exhibition takes place before East Hampshie District Council’s own roadshow, which will showcase its draft Local Plan. Its Liphook event takes place on Wednesday, March 6 at the Millennium Centre.

New housing figures for the parish have emerged following the publication of EHDC’s draft Local Plan in December, which covers the period between 2017 and 2036.

They reveal a further requirement of 100 homes at Chiltley Farm and 36 to 40 homes on land west of Headley Road near the A3, to be phased over a several years.

Both sites, which are favoured by EHDC, have previously submitted planning applications that were refused permission by the district council’s planning officers.
