Planning Matters

Full details of planning applications and associated documents can be viewed on the Basingstoke and Deane website and entering "Hurstbourne Priors".

The Basingstoke & Deane Planning & Development Structure can be seen by clicking PD Structure

The laws governing planning are very complex and Planning Consent is required before most forms of development can be legally undertaken.

Development is defined in The Town and Country Planning Act, 1990 as:

“the carrying out of building, engineering, mining or other operations in, on, over or under land, or the making of any material change in the use of any buildings or other land.”

Advice and useful booklets on the subject can be obtained from:

Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council, Planning & Transportation Department, Civic Offices, London Road, Basingstoke RG21 4AH. The Borough Council switchboard number is 01256 844844 but a personal visit to the offices, which are open to the public, is advisable.
