You will have received a leaflet through your door advising you of a consultation event that was held on Tuesday 2nd May 2pm – 8pm. This was an event run by Hart District Council to discuss all aspects of the Hart Local Plan. On Sunday 7th May we (Hook Parish Council) hosted an event at Elizabeth Hall explaining how the Hart Local Plan would affect Hook residents.

There are two further opportunities for you to see what the Hart Local Plan means for Hook residents.

  • The display boards from our event can be view in the foyer of the Hook Community Centre until the end of the consultation on the 9th June.
  • Prior to the Annual Village Meeting 24th May at Hook Community Centre, our staff will be available for you to ask any questions and view the display between 7pm – 8:30pm, when the formal meeting starts. The Hook Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be providing an update during the meeting.
