The link for details is https://isharemaps.bathnes.gov.uk/data.aspx?requesttype=parsetemplate&template=Dev elopmentControlApplication.tmplt&basepage=data.aspx&Filter=^refval^='17/06106/FUL' &history=851c6698e1ce42028568c74d4c8ed5ec&SearchLayer=DCApplications SearchLayer=DCApplications The Hinton House helipad application has been referred to be heard at the Development Management Committee meeting on the 14th March 2018. The Chair of the Committee stated that "I have studied the application carefully & am aware many issues raised are not necessarily relevant to planning policy however it is clearly controversial with objections registered by both HCPC & FPC.From consultee feedback there is clearly a difference of view between statutory & third party comments & therefore I recommend the application be determined by the DMC" This was referred to the Chair of the Committee because the Planning Officer was was "minded to permit whilst the parish council objected". At the committee meeting the Freshford and Hinton PC's will be given the opportunity to speak, as will the planning agent. The "for" and "against" parties are given the same amount of total speaking time at this meeting. Your Parish Council will contact B&NES to clarify the process. THE DECISION WAS “PERMIT”
The meeting and gathering were held as planned and results are now being collated before being forwarded to all villagers for further consideration.

HINTON CHARTERHOUSE  PARISH PLAN                   Green Lane c1900                             High Street c2015                                     WE WANT YOUR INPUT    What do you want Hinton Charterhouse to look like in the future?     The Hinton Charterhouse Parish Plan is your chance to have a say in the future of the parish.    Background    At the Parish Council meeting in November 2017, it was agreed to form a working group to develop the Hinton Charterhouse Parish Plan. This document will set out how we wish to take the village into the future. This will then be referred to when any future changes to the parish are proposed, making sure that residents can influence decision making. The parish plan is led by you, the community, and will determine how we can make changes for the better. We want to involve everyone so we can be sure all issues are raised and addressed.  With your input, an action plan can be put into place that includes residentsí concerns and aspirations.
