We understand that, under the new administration, the details of the Hart Local Plan are likely to change. The emphasis is still on new settlement(s) rather than urban extensions, but the choice of new settlement is not clear.
Before the Reg 18 consultation version of the Plan was issued in April there were three possible new settlements on the table: Murrell Green, Winchfield and Rye Common. The Plan narrowed this down to one: Murrell Green. However, we understand that developers have now produced viable plans for all three, and all three are back in consideration. It is also understood that only one of them will go ahead in this plan period.
