Fleet Neighbourhood Plan Submission Consultation

10am, 28th January - 4pm, 11th March 2019


The amended Fleet Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to Hart District Council at the beginning of January - Hart are now holding another consultation, the details of which can be found below:


'' Hart District Council is pleased to consult you on the proposed Fleet Neighbourhood (Development) Plan. Fleet Town Council as the ‘qualifying body’ has prepared the Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) for the town with the help of the local community. The Plan sets out objectives for the future of the town and contains planning policies to guide the development and use of land in Fleet Town.


Hart District Council is now required to carry out further consultation on the Plan. The Plan is therefore now subject to a six week consultation between 10 am 28th January and 4pm 11 March 2019, and all representations must be made to the District Council as set out below.


Copies of the proposed Fleet Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents (including the representation form/procedures to be followed in responding) are available to view on the Hart District Council website: https://www.hart.gov.uk/fleet


Hard copies (including representations forms) are also available for inspection during normal opening hours at:

  • Hart District Council's Offices, Harlington Way, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 4AE


And at the following locations:

  • Fleet Town Council, The Harlington, 236 Fleet Road, Fleet GU51 4BY  Monday-Friday, 9.30am - 5pm
  • Fleet Library, 236 Fleet Road, Fleet GU51 4BX

Monday-Friday: 9:30am–6pm

Saturday: 9:30am–5pm

Sunday: Closed


Please note that representations must be made in writing. There are several ways to make your comments:


  • Complete an online form or an electronic representation form (these can be found online at https://www.hart.gov.uk/fleet)  or set out your comments and email it to: neighbourhoodplanning@hart.gov.uk
  • Print a representation form or write a letter and post it to us at: Neighbourhood Planning, Corporate Policy, Hart District Council, Harlington Way, Fleet, GU51 4AE


Any representation may include a request to be notified of the Council’s decision to ‘make’ the Neighbourhood Development Plan (bring it in to legal force). Further information on making representations can be found on our website with the consultation documents (link above).


All comments will be publicly available, and identifiable by name and organisation (where applicable) and your name, address and comments will be forwarded to the independent examiner as required by the regulations covering neighbourhood plans. We have received assurance that the data will be kept securely and not used for any other purpose. The examiner will retain the data until we have made the relevant statutory decisions on whether to adopt the plan and the deadline for a Judicial Review has passed, which is six weeks after the decision notice has been published.


Comments will be published on our website along with your name. If a copy is requested by the relevant Town or Parish Council who prepared the Plan, a redacted copy showing your name and comments will be sent.


For further details on how your information is used, how we maintain the security of your information and your rights, including how to access information we hold on you and how to complain if you have any concerns about how your personal details are processed, please visit www.hart.gov.uk/privacy 


Following this six week public consultation, the proposed Plan will be submitted for independent examination and then be subject to a local referendum. If successful, the Fleet Neighbourhood Plan will be ‘made’ (bought into legal force) and will form part of the Hart Development Plan and be used in the determination of planning applications relating to land in Fleet Town.


All comments must be received in the six week period (10am on 28th January – 4pm 11th March) to be accepted. ''
