THE NEW MILTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN WEB SITE

IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING A COMPLETE REVAMP

AND WILL BE BACK ON-LINE IN EARLY JANUARY 2018

 

WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

 

Many have been asking what has happened with The New Milton Neighbourhood Plan, about which so much was written, and talked about, earlier in the year.  The final draft plan, which will outline the overall vision for the Town and the location of the additional housing sites being planned for New Milton, has been delayed as a result of new regulations which have been brought forward by The Environment Agency regarding Flood Risks and their alleviation.  Whilst these do not affect our area, New Forest District Council has had to review these and make adjustments to their own Local Plan, that has resulted in a delay in our own Neighbourhood Plan.

However, it is anticipated that early next year, the New Milton Neighbourhood Plan Working Party will be able to outline the details of the Group’s Vision for the future of New Milton and the additional housing required by our Government.  This should be published for Public Consultation in the early months of 2018 - and it will be the basis on which a Referendum will be held locally, later in 2018.
