APPEAL - Land Adjacent Marsh Lane

An Appeal has been submitted against the decision to refuse the Planning Applicatioon for 121 houses at land adjacent to Marsh Lane.

This gives residents the opportunity to withdraw, amend or reinforce comments already made or to make a comment on this application for the first time.

Additional documents are to be submitted with the Appeal which have not been made available to the public for consultation.

Since the planning application was submitted the 2nd Arborfield planning application has been granted by WBC which means an even larger increase in traffic just over the border which will have an impact on Eversley.

Please follow the details on the attached letter to make your comments by 27th January 2016.

HDC Housing Options Consultation 

 Hart District Council's decision to stop the Local Plan Consultation

From 2pm on Thursday 14 January Hart District Council stopped the Local Plan Consultation and removed the online response form from the website.

Leader of Hart District Council, Cllr Stephen Parker, said:

“We have found errors in the consultation material for our Local Plan Consultation. In order not to undermine the consultation process and to maintain a fair and transparent procedure, we have taken the decision to stop the consultation and have ceased our online response form.

I apologise to the residents and businesses of Hart for the inconvenience caused and I would like to reassure the public that by working with my colleagues to rectify the issues discovered, we will create a robust consultation going forward.”


The draft local plan consultation is open between the 27 November 2015 - 15 January 2016.

Hart District Council has published 3 documents which provide people an array of information to help shape the best approach to delivering the district’s housing growth needs. The documents all feed into the main consultation form so that a complete approach can be taken forward. For background information to the consultation please read the following documents:

To have your say please complete the online form available via

Paper copies of the consultation documents can be viewed at the Council Offices in Fleet, at Town and Parish Council Offices and at local libraries. Alternatively, all three documents are available to purchase for £10. Please contact the Planning Policy team if you wish to make a purchase - email or phone 01252 77 4118

Yateley Library Under Threat!

Library Consultation There is currently a consultation on the future of libraries. It has been noted that Yateley Library has been categorized as tier 3 rather than tier 2 which many believed to be incorrect because of the footfall and the use by Yateley School. Being incorrectly categorized could potentially make it vulnerable to closure as a less important library. EPC would encourage residents to comment on the consultation expressing the importance of the library to the community. Comments must be submitted by 16th January - please see link below.

 The Parish of Eversley is in the north-east of Hampshire, on the banks of the Blackwater River, which itself forms the County boundary with Berkshire. It is one of the northern parishes of Hart District, lying to the west of Yateley and north of the A30.  It is about 4 miles from Fleet, 10 miles from Basingstoke and 6 miles from Camberley.

The village of Eversley comprises five distinct areas - Lower Common, Eversley Street, Eversley Centre, Eversley Cross and Up Green.  Within these hamlets there are about 600 houses and nearly 1500 residents.
Eversley has many features typical of Hampshire villages - a church, a school, a village green and duck pond, a cricket pitch, a village hall and a shop-come-post office.  However, they are dotted around the parish so that it has no obvious core.

There are four designated Conservation Areas, at Church Farm, Eversley Street, Eversley Cross and Up Green.  To the south and west of the vlllage there are large areas of forestry, parts of which are designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI’s), because of their nationally important wildlife.  Some of these are also designated as parts of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area, because of the internationally rare birdlife, such as the Nightjar, Dartford Warbler and Woodlark.
There is an extensive footpath and bridleway network and ready access to the hundreds of acres of forestry land, which is much used by local horse riders.  One of the bridleways, The Welsh Drive, passes close by a bronze-age bowl barrow called Cudbury Clump on the Bramshill boundary and crosses the parish to the Yateley border by Blackbushe Airport, with access to Eversley’s National Nature Reserve at Castle Bottom.
