Important Neighbourhood Plan
documents just published on ATC website

Alton Town Council have now published the Alton Neighbourhood Steering Group’s (NPSG) DRAFT OBJECTIVES, POLICIES & ACTION POINTS

It can be downloaded via THIS LINK

It should be read in conjunction with the SUPPORTING NARRATIVE available via THIS LINK

This work in progress (and what a work!) lacks its eventual maps. But it gives a fascinating insight into the proposals that are likely to be put forward for public consultation before final formulation and adoption of Alton’s plan.

Under current legislation this is our only protection from indiscriminate and uncoordinated development. Some of the content will be controversial, but this reflects the difficulty of the task undertaken by the steering group.
