Please see the latest update on the Neighbourhood Plan.


As a result of a meeting, on the 10th November 2017, with the consultants representing the land interests from the land currently proposed for development in the NFDC Local Plan, located between Lower Pennington Lane and Ridgeway Lane, the boundary has been redrawn to no longer include the amenity land to the south of Forest Gate Gardens.   The Neighbourhood Plan group requested that this be removed from the outline boundary as it is leased to Lymington and Pennington Town Council and would not be available for any purposes of housing development.  


A combination of many factors including input from the public consultation have led to the decision by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group that we will not continue with Site D (the Northern Site potentially accommodating 870 homes) as a strategic allocation in the Neighbourhood Plan.

Site E, located on Milford Road, will continue as a strategic allocation, this will accommodate approximately 200 homes. 

It has been decided to continue to investigate the land between Lower Pennington Lane and Ridgeway Lane for inclusion in the Neighbourhood Plan. This site is being recommended to be taken forward by the Local Plan and it would be appropriate for the Neighbourhood Plan, in light of this, to also include the site to ensure we influence the design, density and policies relating to this site.   
Brownfield sites located in Lymington and Pennington, that potentially could be developed, are being investigated fully by the Neighbourhood plan Strategic sites group
