The Parish Council plays an active part in all local planning issues. It is probably the area of the Council's role that is best known to the community and which can be of the most importance. Our Local Planning Authority is the South Downs National Park (SDNP), although most decisions are delegated to Winchester City Council to determine on their behalf. Comments on applications can be made online via the SDNP (link below) or sent by email to email@example.com
Click here to go to the SDNP Planning Portal, and then type Hambledon in the keyword seach to show all applications. Select the one you wish to view.

Trees are protected in the Conservation Area and you must give six weeks' written notice to Winchester City Council of your intention to undertake works to any tree over 75 mm in diameter (measured 1.5m above ground level). There are penalties for non-compliance.
