Alton Parish village website


This is the Website of Alton Parish Council, comprising the three villages of Alton Barnes, Alton Priors and Honeystreet.

BIG NEW HOUSING PLAN 

AT HONEYSTREET

Get information and have your say

Come to a Village Meeting

Saturday morning, March 7, Coronation Hall

Meet the developers from 10.30am. Meeting 11.30

A proposal has been made to convert the site of Honeystreet Sawmill to homes and offices. This would obviously have a major impact on Honeystreet and also Alton Barnes, Priors and beyond. 

The developers, HAB Housing Ltd, are keen to consult local residents before putting forward a detailed scheme. By  arrangement with the Parish Council, they will be available to answer questions from 10.30am on Saturday, March 7 (alongside the usual coffee morning). This will be followed by a Village Meeting at 11.30.

This is your chance to find out what is planned and make your views known. We hope as many people as possible will be there.
