What is a local plan
The Winchester District Local Plan Part 1 sets a target for 250 houses to be built in Colden Common over the next 20 years. Local Plan Part 2 will deal with development management issues and allocate sites for development.
Winchester City Council approached the Parish Council in January 2013 to work with the Community so that the Parish would have a greater involvement in shaping policies within this document with relate to Colden Common.
Several volunteers came forward "The Community Engagement Group" who commenced engagement with the community through a workshop at Colden Common Primary School on the 9th February 2013.
