Our Parish Plan wins an award!
At the AGM of the Petersfield Society in June 2013, the Steep Parish Plan was awarded the Presidents Owl, the Society's annual civic award. Five members of the Plan Steering Group attended the presentation by Christopher Napier, the Society’s President.
One of the follow-up initiatives from the creation of the Steep Parish Plan has been a move to gather more information about the history of Steep. A number of items are being worked on, including an oral history project and also the creation of a digital database of the Steep church registers which date from 1610.

At Penns Place in January, 2013, the Parish Plan (including the revised Planning Design Guidance) and other associated documents were endorsed by East Hampshire District Council. The Parish Council and Steering Group were commended for the quality of their work.

Welcome to the Steep Parish Plan website.The Parish Plan and Landscape Assessment processes have given us an important opportunity to take stock of the current state of the parish of Steep and to influence its future. By collecting information about how the local community sees itself and its surroundings evolving over the next few years, we have been able to arrive at some conclusions and propose actions to address some of the challenges. These actions have now been adopted by Steep Parish Council.
This website describes how the Plan has been developed and provides access to the four key reports that the Parish Plan Steering Group team has produced. It gives you access to source material for some elements of the plan - as well as an extensive gallery of Steep pictures. It also provides links to other key sources of information and ways in which you can become more involved in those areas that interest you.
