The NPSG has submitted a paper to the appeal by the West of Hook developers against refusal of planning permission.  In summary, the NPSG objects to the development because:

  • it encroaches on the gap between Hook and Newnham
  • there is already as much development coming to Hook as can be reasonably accommodated
  • the planned transport infrastructure is inadequate
  • the existing footpath will become too urbanised.

Read the details here.

Here are the first draft Neighbourhood Plan documents.  These will be the subject of the Hook Neighbourhood Plan Consultation on 18 and 20 January 2018.

  • Hart’s latest draft of the Local Plan (the “Proposed Submission Local Plan” or PSLP) is available here.  If you’re not familiar with the Local Plan you may find it useful to read our Hart PSLP overview.

Please make your comments online here.

Alternatively, you may download a Word version here and email it to – but it would make it much easier to collate comments if you do it online.    Please submit all comments by 8 February 2018.
