Neighbourhood Plans

Planning Policy

Neighbourhood Plans are about allocating land for development. They are intended to set out where new houses, businesses, shops and community facilities should go in the local area and will allocate smaller sites for development. 

There is currently one Neighbourhood Plan in the Winchester District Local Planing Authority Area (outside the South Downs National Park); this is the Denmead Neighbourhood Plan which was made part of the Winchester District Development Plan on 1 April 2015.  You can view the Plan and the process of making the Plan using the relevant links below.
