The Catesby Estates planning application has finally come onto the Basingstoke & Deane Planning Portal. It is now for 350 homes not the original 400.

The application is dated 25th November 2021 and the closing date for comments is 25th January.

 The Parish Council will be objecting to this application and I would urge you all to send in your opinions in a personal capacity as well.

 The information on the application is available at:

Join our local team and become a Parish Councillor

Following the resignation of Tim Hall, there is now a vacancy for a new Parish Councillor.  No special qualification is required to be a councillor; indeed, it is important that all sorts of people serve as councillors to give good representation of the community.  Training for new councillors is also available to help assist with understanding the responsibilities of the role.


If you would like to put yourself forward as a Parish Councillor, please either get in touch with the clerk (clerk@ecchinswell-pc.gov.uk) or come along to the next virtual meeting of the Parish Council to introduce yourself.
