Despite the fact that this is not yet a formal application, a local resident has taken up the challenge.  You may care to sign her petition, and forward it to anyone you know.

Land at Bishopswood Lane, Tadley
Developers have asked BDBC whether they need to provide an Environmental Impact Assessment before making a formal planning application for approximately 290 houses in land off Bishopswood Lane, Tadley.

Are you aware of any environmental issues which may be affected by the development? If so, please let us know. This is not yet a formal planning application, but will probably become so, at which time relevant planning comments may then be made.

What is a Parish Council?
The Council is the lowest tier of local government but is at the grassroots of the community. The Council normally consists of 11 voluntary Councillors (currently there are two vacancies) who are elected for a four year term of office to serve and administer for the needs of the residents of Baughurst Parish.  In the event of a mid-term vacancy occurring, a new member is elected or co-opted until the next full election. The Parish Councillors determine and set policy to cater for the social, cultural, welfare and environmental needs of our residents and employ a part time Clerk to the Council to implement policy decisions.


All Councillors adhere to the Parish Council Code of Conduct and complete a Register of Interests. The Councillors have formed into sub-councils to concentrate on in-depth concerns in the local community. The committees are listed here:
General Purposes
Footpaths
Playing Fields and Open Spaces


Interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?
Why not attend as a member of the public for a few meetings, and if this encourages you to get involved, perhaps speak with an existing Councillor or the Parish Council Clerk who can provide more information about Parish Council elections and mid-term vacancies?


When does the Parish Council meet?
The Parish Council generally meets on the 4th Thursday in each month.  The meetings are held either in the Heath End Village Hall or Wolverton Village Hall, with the exception of August and December.  Primarily most meetings are held in Heath End  hall, except the May, June and July meetings, where the meetings are generally held at Wolverton Village Hall.  The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to listen to the proceedings,  Visiting public are not entitled to participate in the business of the meeting without the invitation of the Chairman. Two short Public Question slots are always scheduled in the agenda.
