Chris Elliott

Responsible for all aspects of regulatory planning and environmental development for areas that fall outside of the national park's boundaries.  The building control, land charges, and transportation teams work across the whole district.  The main work groups are:

Development Control - involves all aspects of the regulatory controls applied under the town and country planning legislation, principally the determination of planning applications.

Policy and Plans - primarily involved with the production of new style planning policy documents which are known as local development plan documents.  This team is involved with a range of bodies including: the New Forest National Park Authority and Hampshire County Council in the production of these new policy documents.

Building Control - a separate regulatory regime mainly concerned with the construction, health and safety and accessibility of new buildings.

Local Land Charges - maintain a register of charges that apply to properties in the District.  Local land charges searches are normally made by or on behalf of people who are buying property in the area.

Transport and Streets - provides a traffic management service (under agency arrangements from Hampshire County Council).  In addition the team develops inputs on transportation issues as part of policy formulation, manages some street lights and helps with the implementation of transport related improvement teams.

Design and Conservation - deals with conservation, including the protection of historic buildings and the enhancement of conservation areas. It also deals with landscape and open space issues.  Tree Preservation Orders and tree work applications are now managed for us by the New Forest National Park Authority.
