Hartley Wintney

The name recorded in the 13th century as Hertleye Wynteneye means "the clearing in the forest where the deer graze by Winta's island". Winta was probably a Saxon who held an island in the marshes of the Hart valley where a priory of Cistercian nuns was founded in 1190.

The village grew prosperous as a main road village, first as a stopping place from London to the Royal Palace at Odiham and then as a coach stop on the London-Exeter Road, the A.30.

Now it is known as a centre for the antique trade and is the proud possessor of one of the oldest cricket greens in England. Cricket has been played in this superb setting for over 200 years and Hartley men were playing for England in Napoleon's time.

Standing guard over the village's central common are the Mildmay Oaks, planted after the Battle of Trafalgar to provide wood for the nation's ships of the future. The village is also the setting for West Green House, an 18th century house now owned by the National Trust.

Neighbourhood Plan

Submission Consultation

In line with legislation we are now undertaking a six week consultation on the proposed Plan. All comments will be sent to and considered by an independent Examiner who will consider whether the Plan meets a set of prescribed 'basic conditions' and other legal requirements. Further information on the 'Basic Conditions' is available in the Guide to Basic Conditions and Making Representations or can be found in the National Planning Practice Guidance.

All comments must be received during the six week period commencing at 10am on Monday 28 January and ending at 4pm on Monday 11 March 2019. Comments after this time will not be accepted.

Hartley Wintney NP Strategic Environmental Assessment and Habitats Regulation Assessment Screening, September 2017 This document sets out whether the Plan needs to be subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and/or a Habitats Regulation Assessment (HRA). It concludes that the Hartley Wintney NP will need to be subject to a SEA, and that the Plan should include a specific policy on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area and provision of appropriate mitigation measures and be subject to a further HRA Screening.
On 2 October 2014, Hart District Council approved the designation of the whole parish of Hartley Wintney as a Neighbourhood Area, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.
