This is the website of the
Crookham Village Parish Neighbourhood Plan
We are involving the community to form a sustainable plan to help protect the Parish of Crookham Village from uncontrolled development.
This affects you because you live in Crookham Village Parish and the parish includes the wards of Zebon Copse, Netherhouse Moor and the Old Village.
With many thanks to both the team that worked to compile and check the Neighbourhood Plan, and to everyone who took the time to speak with the team at events or to respond to the various consultations, our Neighbourhood Plan has now been submitted to Hart District Council (HDC).
HDC will check that the NP. Providing they find that it meets the various requirements, they will submit it to the Planning Inspector for review. (S)he may make comments, ask for clarifications or minor tweaks, and when satisfied, will ask HDC to run a referendum on the NP. Subject to broad local acceptance, our Neighbourhood Plan would then become a legal reference for all local planning approvals.

How this affects you
A Neighbourhood Plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
- where new homes, leisure facilities and business premises should be built
- what type of development they should be and what they should look like
The plan can be detailed or general, depending on what local people want. Neighbourhood Plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area and fit with the Hart District Council Local Plan when it is completed.
