What's new?

Continued work has now focused on additional benefits both on land north of Bohunt School and also on the southern edge of the site.

On the southern land, plans for the allotments and orchard have evolved alongside an area for an outside classroom and performance space.

On land north of the school, the focus is on interconnectivity with the school and providing land for enhanced and new facilities both for the school and the wider community.

Policy Position

The site is within Bramshott and Liphook Parish and its Neighbourhood Development Plan area. The Neighbourhood Development Plan is focused on enhancing the parish, both now and into the future. Harrow passionately believes that Westlands Park can provide the best solution to enhancing the area, delivering a community-led proposal which includes strategic, social and community infrastructure.

This is supported by the South Downs National Park Authority policy, where development within the park, not allocated for development through the current plan, can come forward through local neighbourhood plans.

Westlands Park and proposals on land within the promotion have for many years been more supported than they have been opposed making the proposals ideal for consideration through the Neighbourhood Plan route.
