Warnford Village

Planning Matters

Planning Matters, Warnford Village

The future shape of Warnford village and its environment will be influenced by decisions made through the planning process.  All members of the Parish are encouraged to play an active part.

The Planning Authority for Warnford is the South Downs National Park (SDNP).  In the main, planning applications are handled on behalf of SDNP by Winchester City Council (WCC).  

A special Parish Meeting on 25th June 2015 decided not to produce a Neighbourhood Plan, but to investigate the possibility of producing a Village Design Statement and/or a Local Landscape Character Assessment.  The same meeting asked the Parish officers to engage actively with the planning process, both in commenting on SDNP’s new Local Plan and in responding to planning applications.   The slides presented at that meeting can be found in the meeting minutes page of this website.

The policies which currently apply are set out in the Winchester City Council Joint Core Strategy (see Chapter 6 for specific reference to Warnford).  SDNP has now published the latest draft of its own Local Plan which will apply from 2017 – details of where to find it and how to comment are on this site at the “SDNP Local Plan” page.

You can search for current and past planning applications on the SDNP website.

Current/Recent Applications for Warnford - these are listed at the bottom of this page

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................

When an application is made, the Planning Authority is under a duty to notify neighbours and other parties affected by it, as well as the Parish officers.  The notification letter will tell you how long you have to respond (usually 21 days).  Anyone can comment, object or make a statement in support. If you are affected, please register your comments etc. directly with the Planning Authority. 

The Parish can also make a response, but only on planning issues.  The set of slides below entitled "Parish Planning Role"  explains what can and can’t be included:

If you want the Parish to take your views on a particular application into account, please copy the Chairman and/or Parish Clerk on your comments to SDNP/WCC.  You can provide separate comments to the Parish if you wish.  Note that the Parish has to get its comments in by the 21 day deadline, so you need to get yours to the Parish within 14 days of the original application.
