Published Friday 3 October 2014

Totton and Eling Town Council has applied to New Forest District Council and the New Forest National Park Authority to designate a ‘Neighbourhood Area’ for the whole of the town council area.

Within this area the town council intends to use the new neighbourhood planning powers introduced through the Localism Act in 2011 to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan.

Neighbourhood plans give local people the opportunity to say what type of development is right for their community.

All but a very small part of the proposed neighbourhood area lies outside the National Park. Before the neighbourhood area is confirmed there is a period in which representations can be made regarding the proposed boundary of the Neighbourhood Plan area.

Further details can be found at www.newforest.gov.uk/haveyoursay or www.newforestnpa.gov.uk/consultations.

Comments on the boundary of the Neighbourhood Plan area proposed by Totton and Eling Town Council should be sent to New Forest District Council to be received by no later than Friday 14 November 2014.

Comments can be emailed to the district council at: policyandplans@nfdc.gov.uk or posted to: Policy and Plans Team, New Forest District Council, Appletree Court, Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, SO43 7PA.
