Very important news for all Bassett residents  - Your Neighbourhood, Your Vision

The Bassett Neighbourhood Development Plan has been formally published and is now open for Public Consultation and Comment.

Working in conjunction with the local community, including residents’ associations, local businesses and interest groups, the Bassett Neighbourhood Forum has coordinated the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for the Ward of  Bassett up to 2029.

The Plan enables residents to both define and realise their aspirations for the local community; maintaining the distinctive, spacious and urban  character of  the area whilst taking into account the needs for ongoing development. If adopted by a forthcoming local referendum, the Plan will carry the weight of law  in planning matters.

The plan comprises both overall Bassett-wide principles and policies (the main document) and local area policies and statements (the appendices) - see right to access these documents.

Key points of the Plan include:

Bassett is the first Council Ward in the country to get to this stage.

The Plan is now subject to a statutory 6 week public consultation which runs from August 28th through to noon on October 9th  2014. The consultation will enable the Forum to gather feedback on the Plan prior to the referendum.

Your thoughts and comments are very important, please do take part in the consultation in order that any concerns can be responded to and addressed if appropriate.

A leaflet and feedback form will be distributed to households in the Ward in September. The leaflet distribution company is unable to deliver to flats, so if you don’t receive one,  please do contact us.

OBRA organised a well attended public meeting at All Saints Church Hall, Winchester Road on Thursday 18th September, where Cllr. Les Harris presented the Plan and answered questions.  A summary of the meeting is available: Brief Summary - More Detailed Notes

The Plan, consultation details, consultation response form and information for individual areas can be downloaded from either the Council’s www site or through the links on the right.
