Watch the Full Presentation made on Thursday 29th April at 7:30 p.m.
This Plan enables those who live in the parish of New Milton to shape the future of our Town.
Our Community Vision is for a vibrant town centre that is a social and economic hub for shopping, living, working and leisure.
The Plan sets out policies for local development: where we want new homes, shops, offices, influencing the infrastructure to support new homes and more people.
This Plan, finalised after wide-ranging community and stakeholder consultations is now being submitted to Referendum on Thursday 6th May 2021 for local people to vote on the adoption of the policies.
After some years of community consultation and input, we can now have more power to help shape the future of our Town and create an exciting and sustainable future for our Parish.
