Highclere Parish Council
The Parish Council plays an active part in all local planning issues. It is probably the area of the Council's role that is best known to the community and which can be of the most importance. All planning applications are posted online by the Local Planning Authority, Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council and can be viewed on this website in the Planning Tracker. Highclere Parish Council has a Planning Committee which considers all new applications; there is a time limit for this and unless an application is particularly controversial, the planning committe has delegated responsibility to decide how to respond on behalf of the Parish Council.
