  • Our current Executive Committee has limited expertise, time and capacity to undertake and co-ordinate responses to local planning applications.  This situation can only change when a volunteer with the necessary motivation, capacity, experience and insight joins the Executive Committee.
  • Power lies with Hart District Council and members should make their views known by commenting on applications and by contacting the three district councillors.
  • Odiham Parish Council is a statutory consultee and members should make democracy work through their elected parish councillors.

Odiham's Neighbourhood Plan:

OnwardPlan, the Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish of Odiham, will shape development of Odiham,  North Warnborugh and RAF Odiham during the next 2 decades,   Formulation of OnwardPlan is a vital activity that depends upon public consultation and engagement for its success. Full details can be found at the Outward Plan website which all residents and members of the Odiham Society are asked to visit.

The Swan Public House at North Warnborough:

Hart District Council has pursued this matter vigorously and has now escalated the matter by issuing a repairs notice which has been served on the last registered owners of the Swan and affixing a further copy in a prominent position at the property.  The document may be downloaded here. (PDF Document)

Pages 3 & 4 of the repair notice identify the works that must be carried out by the register owner to comply, although it seems unlikely that any response will be forthcoming.  Once the two month notice duration has expired, Sarah Castle and the Planning Enforcement officers at Hart will apply on behalf of the local authority to compulsorily purchase the property. The notice plans can be downloaded here. (PDF Document)

Hart is required to work within the law and to deal with an elusive owner.  The Odiham Society is grateful for the Council's tenacity in this matter.
