Planning

This page deals with planning matters.

Planning applications are handled primarily by Test Valley Borough Council, or in more specialised cases by Hampshire County Council – for example, applications related to waste treatment sites.

Planning applications are published on the TVBC planning site here:

http://www.testvalley.gov.uk/resident/planningandbuildingcontrol/viewplanningapplicationsonline/view-planning-applications-online/

Each application is given a reference number such as 14/01537/FULLS and this must be used to find the documents for the application.  It is possible for anyone to make comments about each application, either online or in writing to TVBC.  The most recent planning applications affecting Braishfield are also listed below, for convenience.

Braishfield Parish Council has a 3 week period from the publication of an application to make comments to TVBC. Braishfield PC will respond in one of 3 ways:

  • “Support” – where we are in favour of an application
  • “No objection” – where we have no particular opinion about an application
  • “Object” – where we have concerns about any aspect of the application.  We must use this response in any case where we have comments about the application, even where the comments are about details of an application that we are broadly in favour of, in order for TVBC to consider our comments.

Anyone can contact Braishfield PC to express their views on an application and any comments will be taken into consideration when the council prepares its response to TVBC.  However, it is important to remember that the ultimate decisions are made by TVBC and it is important that any views are also expressed directly to them.

Braishfield has a Village Design Statement and a Conservation Area, which are relevant for planning matters. Braishfield PC takes both of these documents into account in the consideration of any planning application.

Listed buildings which are treated specially in respect of planning are described on the Listed Buildings page.
