Grey House School, Hartley Wintney – The planning application submitted in 2020 was withdrawn by the developer prior to final review by HDC and was replaced in March 2021 by application number 21/00630/FUL as follows:

Demolition of existing buildings and erection of a 65 bed care home (Class C2 use), x4 two bed care dwellings (Class C3 use) and associated landscaping, parking, altered access and ancillary development.

In the view of the Society we still believe that the development at 3 stories is excessive and does not recognise the dominant impact that the building will have on the quiet, rural and residential nature of the surrounding Conservation area.
The application ignores the strong recommendation of the Parish Council and others to the previous application outlining a more appropriate design in terms of size, height and density and which has no third floor thereby creating a smaller and more personal care home in keeping with the village in general and area around Mount Pleasant in particular.

As at November 2021 the application is still under review by HDC
