Neighbourhood Plan

The East Meon Neighbourhood Plan, which can be found on the South Downs website here:  https://www.southdowns.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/EAST-MEON-Made-NDP.pdf.   The following text is taken from the Parish Council website:

The East Meon Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is the culmination of a number of years of work by many volunteers across the Parish.  On 9th November 2017, the East Meon NDP was passed at referendum with the support of 84% of those who voted.  The NDP was ‘made’ by the South Downs National Park Authority at their Planning Committee meeting on 14th December 2017 and is now part of the South Downs National Park Authority’s Development Plan. The East Meon NDP is used in the determination of Planning Applications in the East Meon Neighbourhood Area (the whole Parish).


New plans have been proposed for the dwellings on land south of Coombe Road, one of our Neighbourhood Plan sites.  To view these plans, and to comment, please go to:
