The preparation of the Beaulieu Parish Plan has been an interesting and valuable exercise and there is much enthusiasm to tackle the important issues raised; the survey has identified aspects that can be improved for the future well-being of the Parish. The New Forest District Council and the National Park Authority have advised that they will take the Parish Plan into account when formulating their own policies. The Beaulieu Estate has undertaken to consider the findings of the Plan in its future policies and will work with the Parish Council to realise the objectives set where it is able.

Members of the committee working on the village plan were Carol Green (Chairman), Sally Brearley (Secretary), John Phipps (Treasurer), Anne Coles, Carolyn McCafferty, Jo Cooke-Hurle, Ralph Montagu, Steve Vokins, Rachel Pearson, Christine Hills, and with assistance from Penny Velander (NFDC). Assistance with the cost of producing the plan was received from Awards for All, New Forest District Council and the Beaulieu Parish Council.
