Petersfield Neighbourhood Plan

petersfield-neighbourhood-plan-logo

Neighbourhood Plans  are a whole new approach to planning, which recognises that the best people to say where future housing, business and community-related developments should go are the people who live, work, shop and go to school here.  That’s you.

The Petersfield’s Neighbourhood Plan covers all aspects of development in our town. It’s our chance to come together as a community and decide what kind of town we want Petersfield to be in the next five, 10, 20 years, and beyond.

The Plan, which you’ll be able to vote on in a referendum, will set out the types of development we think the town needs, what we’d be prepared to see built, and which sites we feel would be most appropriate.

The more individuals and sectors of the community who contribute, the better our plan will be for everyone. So, take a look around the site, see the kinds of ideas and information we need, and then let the Neighbourhood Plan Group know your thoughts. Your contribution really is vital.

Latest News:

Following a year of asking you to help shape the future of Petersfield; the Group will be offering a preview of the final plan at the Festival Hall on the 9th May (3pm until 8.30pm) and 10th May (10am until 4.00pm ).

The Councillor’s Community Grants Scheme gives local Councillors discretion to award grants of between £250 and £1000, up to total of £3000, to support local projects or initiatives within their Wards.

The scheme is intended to fund projects that improve local communities through:

• Environmental benefits;
