Neighbourhood Development Plan

Survey results can be downloaded from the Parish Council Page.  Once adopted by TVBC, the council must follow the NDP in relation to any future developments in the parish.

Footpaths

With another lockdown upon us having the opportunity to get out into our local countryside has become even more important.  There are issues within the village and we need to work together as a community to get them sorted as quickly as possible.

Stiles are no longer recommended and should be replaced if possible to allow better access for those with some kind of mobility impairment.  Vegetation must be kept clear of paths and ways not obstructed.

We do all need to be clear on the lines of responsibility, duty and powers as many are not and that is part of the problem.

  • The County Council has the Duty to ensure that they are kept clear (not to actually do the work)

  • The Parish Copuncil has the power to ask for the work to be done and to get it done, if needed.

  • Users have responsibility to keep to footpaths and respect the environment but also the right to clear and go around obstructions, if needed.

Sherfield English . . . .  An Introduction

Sherfield English is a small village in Hampshire, between the Test Valley and the New Forest, on the old Romsey to Salisbury road, now known as the A27 or Salisbury Road. 

 

For its size it has a surprising range of services and facilities, with a village hall, sports field, shop and Post Office, farm shop, fishing lakes, garden centre and Tea Rooms, The Hatchet Inn, a garage and an active church.  It is still quite largely a farming community. 

 

Most of its houses, cottages and isolated farms are scattered down narrow leafy lanes, unseen by those who pass through on the main road.  The Church, St Leonard's, was built in 1902 by Lady Caroline Ashburton (of Melchet Court) in memory of her daughter. It houses some fine art nouveau style stained glass windows, the old village stocks, a 13th century coffin and various old carvings rescued from the medieval church near Manor Farm, and a particulalry fine set of bells.

 

Sherfield English has about 700 residents, and a strong sense of community. As a result there are a wide variety of groups, activities and events in the village, including an annual summer fun day and a popular fireworks display in November.
