Neighbourhood Development Plan Update

Did you know Hermitage is a Service Village?

West Berkshire Council (WBC) splits the places within its boundary into:

  1. Urban Areas – towns like Newbury and Thatcham. 
  2. Rural Service Centres – places like Hungerford and Mortimer. 
  3. Service Villages – Hermitage is one of six within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 

WBC believes Service Villages have “some limited development potential” – think new homes…

Do you want to influence where and how that potential development may happen? 

Help us deliver a Neighbourhood Development Plan.  A NDP would become a legal part of any Development Assessment.

Come along to the School on 10-Oct (10:30-15:30) – Have your say!
