On the 28th November the Bramshott and Liphook Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Steering Group, along with the appointed independent NDP consultant, Feria Urbanism, will be holding the third day of the Design Forum at the Millennium Centre. This follows on from a highly successful Day 1 & 2 where over 200 residents and businesses got involved to explore the ideas and ambitions of those who live and work in the Parish.
The initial two days culminated with Feria Urbanism and the NDP Steering Group presenting the ‘story so far’. The presentation highlighted the unique challenges that the Parish faces and additional work required to seek a holistic solution which the community can reach a consensus on.
The format for the third day will be a more focused “technical workshop” based on the insights, issues and outcomes from the first two days. As a result of the questions and challenges identified, additional research has been undertaken. This new information will be used to inform key decisions regarding the framework and focus of the Plan. This is an important milestone as we move forward into wider engagement with the Parish in the next stage of the process.
The Steering Group would encourage everyone who was involved in the first two days of the Design Forum to come along for the duration of the third day on 28th November. This will be key to ensuring we generate and develop a constructive and efficient debate needed be able to progress the NDP.
The Steering Group also welcomes new participants – however, please note it will be most beneficial that anyone who wishes to participate has fully reviewed the progress and findings from the first two days, so they are informed about the issues and challenges to date.
Following this planned event, the Steering Group is already beginning to look at wider community engagement including additional events and feedback sessions, options for providing online input and feedback, and the ability to register for email updates and details of future events.

On 1 st and 2 nd November 2017 the Bramshott and Liphook Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Steering Group, along with the appointed independent NDP consultant Feria Urbanism, held a Design Forum at the Millennium Centre to explore the ideas and ambitions of those who live and
work in the Parish.
The two day event was very well attended, with over 200 residents and businesses getting involved. Day One saw 19 presenters, including local schools, businesses, support groups and developers, present their vision of the future of the Parish. Participants then visited specific areas of the Parish
and continued group work investigating areas for improvement. The evening saw over 100 residents, businesses and representatives from local organisations look at the day’s work and provide invaluable ideas, feedback and comments on the future of the Parish.
Day Two started with Feria Urbanism summarising work done so far and comments received from local residents and businesses, which participants then explored and finessed. In the evening of Day Two Feria Urbanism and the NDP steering group presented the ‘story so far’ to a packed room of
residents and representatives of local businesses and organisations. The presentation highlighted the unique challenges that the Parish faces and additional work required to seek a holistic solution which the community can reach a consensus on.
Emma Winfield, chair of the NDP said “On behalf of the NDP steering group and Feria Urbanism, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this community event. We had a real cross section of the Parish sharing their views and ideas for the future. It was great to hear how passionate everyone is about the area, the sense of community and wanting the best for the Parish and all who live and work in it. There were a fantastic range of great and insightful ideas and comments on areas of concern as well as how areas could be improved. We are now working on preparations for the third day of the Design Forum on 28th November.”
