Community-led plans for a new homes, landscaped public open space and a new GP surgery for Hindon

The Hindon Neighbourhood Plan was recently “made” having been passed by the community at a Referendum in May 2021. It now forms part of the Development Plan for the area and will guide how the village will develop over the coming years. It included the allocation of this site at East Street/Chicklade Road to deliver a development of new homes and a much-needed new GP surgery to replace the existing surgery, delivering modern, fit-for-purpose primary care facilities for Hindon and its hinterland. 

The site is allocated under Policy 3 of the Neighbourhood Plan and a copy of the Plan can be viewed and downloaded here:

Family-owned house builder, C G Fry and Son Ltd, has been working closely with the village’s Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group throughout the production of the plan. With the plan now “made", C G Fry is preparing a full planning application guided by Policy 3 and other policies in the plan to include: 
  • 31 high-quality family homes, including 12 affordable homes enabling those who might otherwise struggle to live in Hindon, for example young families with local connections, to settle in the village
  • A modern new GP surgery, enabling the local GP practice to relocate from its current premises, which is no longer fit for purpose.
  • Landscaped public open space to protect and enhance the setting of the ridgeway
  • A design approach which will enhance the eastern gateway to the village while protecting key views such as that of the church tower. 
We have established this consultation website to provide information about C G Fry’s emerging development proposals, which have been guided by the village’s own Neighbourhood Plan, and to provide an opportunity for you to provide your feedback comments. All feedback comments will be taken into account when we finalise the plans for a planning application. To ensure your suggestions are considered in this process, please submit your feedback comments by 12.00 Noon, Monday 23rd August 2021.

Update - Thank you and drop-in event invitation

We will be holding a feedback event at Hindon Village Hall on Wednesday 8th September which will provide an opportunity for you to drop-in to view the plans and meet members of the project team, including representatives from C G Fry and Son Ltd and Hindon Surgery.
