Consultation on the pre-submission (Regulation 14) draft Hungerford Neighbourhood Plan

About the Hungerford Neighbourhood Plan

After many years’ work, the Hungerford Neighbourhood Plan has now reached the important pre-submission (Regulation 14) stage and your views are needed.

The Neighbourhood Plan is a document that sets out planning and land-use policies relating to Hungerford parish. It sets out, in development terms, how land should be used within the parish, as well as planning policies to influence development proposals.

The Plan must undergo a rigorous process, including a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), a series of consultations, an independent examination and finally a referendum. If successful, it will form part of the local plan for West Berkshire and will be used to help determine the outcome of planning applications in Hungerford parish.

Hungerford Town Council, working with the local community, has been developing the Hungerford Neighbourhood Plan (formerly known as Hungerford 2036) since 2018 and a final draft has just been produced which it is seeking comments on. You can click here to see a post which provides a timeline of all the key events during this period.

The Neighbourhood Plan outlines the vision and objectives for Hungerford Parish, presented in the form of individual policies. The Plan covers the whole parish from 2024 to 2041 and proposes two new housing sites.

This is your plan, and we welcome your views.
