Statement of Persons Nominated, NOP & SOPS Meon Valley

Durley Parish Council has been approached by a Planning Agent to inform Parish Councillors about a possible housing development at Quob Stables.  Although for no more than thirty properties this is still a significant number of additional homes for Durley.  Whilst Councillors listened to the Planning Agent it was reiterated that in the current Winchester District Local Plan there is no housing allocation for Durley.

Durley Parish Council is committed to doing all within its power to protect our village and will only look to support proposals that enhance our village and is to the benefit of the whole village.

      “Get Safe Online campaign”

Do you overshare information that would be better kept private or more discreet?  Once it’s online, it’s online, so it could be shared even after you’ve deleted it. Think before you post comments or photos that you might regret later. And remember that employers look at social media too.


Check your social media privacy settings to make sure only those you want to can see your profile and posts.


Not everybody who wants to connect with you on social media is who they say they are. Do some research, and accept requests with care.


Splashing pics of your hotel pool on holiday usually means your home is empty, and insurers may not pay out for resulting burglaries. Think before you post.


Protecting your kids from problems on social media is a number one priority.


Fake news, offers, freebies, goods, holidays and profiles are commonplace on social media. Make sure you can tell the difference between fake and real.


If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, report it to @actionfrauduk at or by calling 0300 123 2040. l

Following recent events in Durley please find below some helpful advice for all vehicle owners:-

If you leave valuable possessions (e.g. handbags, laptops, satnavs, iPods, mobile phones, cameras) on show inside a vehicle, it is much more likely to be targeted by thieves.  Even items of little value, such as shopping bags and clothing, may tempt a potential thief to break into the vehicle to see whether they contain anything worth stealing.  Offences can take place during the day or night, whether a vehicle is parked in a driveway, on the street or in a public car park. Typically. thieves will smash windows to gain entry. Sometimes they will break door locks or, on older vehicles, prise the door away from the body of the vehicle.

Here is some good advice to follow to ensure that you don’t end the day without a smile:

  • Before heading off for that picnic or walk, when leaving your car parked up, close all windows and lock your car.
  • Upon locking your vehicle try your car door to ensure it is actually locked.
  • Park your car in an attended car park where possible.
  • Look for public car parks approved by the Park Mark scheme.
  • When parking at home, use your garage. If you don’t have a garage, park in a well-lit area.
  • Don’t leave anything on display in your vehicle.
  • Take all your personal possessions with you.
  • Remove sat nav holders and visible sat nav ring marks from windscreens.
  • Leave the glove box open to show there’s nothing inside.
  • Fit an alarm or immobiliser to your car.
  • Do not store your car’s documents in the car.
  • Secure your wheels using locking wheel nuts.

Please Be Aware

Hampshire Constabulary has received several reports of an unknown male knocking on doors in Bishops Waltham and Waltham Chase requesting painkillers from local residents, although not all of our areas, this could spread.

Can I ask local residents not to give out any kind of medication to any person.

If this male does happen to knock on your door and you do have any concerns with regards to the male’s health or wellbeing please call the relevant service provider.

Enquiries are ongoing with regards to identifying the male to safeguard him and signpost him to seek the support he needs.

Bishops Waltham and surrounding villages is a safe place with low crime levels and this is an unusual incident for this area – but it does highlight the need to keep alert at all times. If you notice anything strange, suspicious or worrying, please report it to your local Police by phoning 101 and in an emergency 999. To keep this a safe community we need the public to be our eyes and ears.

Alternatively, you can call Crime Stoppers (anonymous & free) 0800 555 111
