On the 29th January, Hart District Council approved the departure from the Local Plan to allow 126 new homes to be built in the Strategic Gap at Hawley Park Farm.  (You wonder why it’s worth having a Local Plan when it can be disregarded at the drop of a hat – or in this case a SANG!!)

Sir Gerald Howarth, MP, has applied to the Secretary of State to call in the application. A section 25 holding notice has been issued by the DCLG on Hart Council which prevents them granting formal planning permission while the case for calling in is considered.
