New neighbourhood plan for Yateley

A new neighbourhood plan for Yateley, Darby Green and Frogmore has had final sign-off from Hart District Council.

This followed a resounding success at referendum on 30 June 2022 with 2,185 votes in favour of the plan (91%) and just 210 against (9%).

The neighbourhood plan sits alongside the Local Plan for the district, as the primary consideration when deciding on planning applications in Yateley. This is the tenth neighbourhood plan in Hart and is a further boost to local pro-active planning and place-shaping under a plan-led system.

Cllr Graham Cockarill, Cabinet Member for Place said: "This is great news for Yateley. The plan has been developed with the community to reflect local priorities for managing new development.

“It has sustainability at its heart, with a range of policies including climate change, green infrastructure, biodiversity, good design, Yateley Village Centre, conservation areas and active travel. I would like to thank all of those involved in the process for their hard work in making this happen."

The Yateley, Darby Green and Frogmore Neighbourhood Plan was formally ‘made’ at Council on 28 July 2022 and can be inspected during office hours at Hart District Council, Harlington Way, Fleet, GU51 4AE, and Yateley Town Council Offices, Reading Road, Yateley, Hampshire GU46 7RP.
