Your Town, Your Future, Your Say
To assist FTC, Hampshire County Council (HCC) and the New Forest District Council in making necessary decisions and planning for development we would value the collaboration of the Town’s residents.
Thank you in advance for sharing your views as this information may help shape and create future policies.
This questionnaire seeks your views on likely changes which may occur.
Not all ideas can be put in place because of the constraints of planning law and regulations and resources.
The existing position regarding roads and buildings needs to be considered.
The Neighbourhood Plan will be developed in order to explain and set out the aspirations of the local community.
It will set out a number of aims and objectives to designed to meet these aspirations.
Many factors affect the lives of all of us who live in Fordingbridge and they may be different for each individual.
However, some factors are not in the control of FTC, such as health, education and traffic management.
FTC has opportunities to discuss and negotiate with the Authorities for example HCC, NFDC and the local Care Commissioning Group, when these Authorities policies are being decided.
The Neighbourhood Plan includes representation of local views via the FTC.
The NFDC Local Plan was adopted in June 2020 and provides for additional housing in the town that will increase the population.
Three sites in Fordingbridge have been designated for new homes but other sites could be added.
The three sites are:
- Site 16 lying between Station Road, Marl Lane and the Old Railway Line on land behind Allenbrook Nursing Home.
- Site 17 lying between Marl Lane, Puddleslosh Lane, Whitsbury Road and Sweatford Water.
- Site 18 lying between Whitsbury Road, Fryern Court Road and the A338
FTC is consulted and can make suggestions for example about design, open spaces and facilities.
By answering a few questions you will help us join in the consultation process by making your views known.
Please be aware that the closing date for completing the survey is 31 October 2021
