Affordable Housing in the Parish of Copythorne

I have been advised by English Rural Housing Association (“ERHA”), acting on behalf of New Forest Villages Housing Association Ltd, that they have been developing a proposal for 10 affordable homes for rent to families with a connection to the parish on land to the rear of The Haywain pub in New Inn Road, Bartley.

I understand that these proposals have been discussed with the New Forest National Park Authority (as the Local Planning Authority) and New Forest District Council (as the local Housing Authority) and ERHA are now sharing them for public consultation.

The link to review and comment on the proposals is:-

The public consultation will close on December 13th 2021 although the website will still be able to be viewed after that date.

It is important to note that the public consultation is not a planning application, ERHA have indicated in the FAQ’s within the above website that this is likely to follow in the Spring of 2022.

Various documents relating to the background of Affordable Housing in Copythorne can be found on the following pages on our own website :-
