Update 14 August 2017

Update 14 August 2017
The planning application for the new Travellers site at Culhams Mill has now been completed and is being reviewed by the Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council (BDBC) planning department. The documentation can be reviewed on the BDBC planning portal at
At the Extraordinary General meeting held by the Parish Council on 28th February 2017 the Council passed the motion that it objected in principle to this development and would support measures to have it removed.
The Parish Council is next meeting at 7.30pm on Monday 21st August, and will discuss and formalise its letter of objection. The planning consultant who is advising the Calleva Society (residents’ group) will be at the meeting in order to guide the Council, and will also be available to answer any planning questions that residents may have.
If you intend to write to the BDBC planning department, either in support of the application or to object to it, then I urge you to read the attached list of material planning considerations. The planning department will not consider any representations that fall outside of this guidance.
The Parish Council will publish its final letter of objection and any other guidance documents via
Parish Council website after the meeting.
Best regards
Simon Mahaffey
Silchester Parish Council
