Fareham Borough Council has received a letter from the Independent Government Inspector, David Hogger outlining the preliminary findings from his Examination of the Development Sites and Policies Plan.
The letter follows the Examination hearing sessions which took place in November. It outlines a number of changes that the Inspector thinks should be made to the Plan in order to make it 'sound' and meet with national planning policy.
The suggested modifications to the Plan relate to issues discussed at the hearing sessions, such as affordable housing, older persons accommodation and transport proposals, including the Stubbington bypass. You can view the letter on the Council's website (83 KB) at www.fareham.gov.uk
The Inspector's letter will be considered at a meeting of the Council on 10 February and the Main Modifications will be published for public consultation. Following this, the Inspector will prepare his final report which will set out whether he finds the Development Sites & Policies Plan sound and legally compliant.
Executive Member for Planning and Development, Councillor Keith Evans said: "The proposed changes to the Plan were all talked about at the Examination hearing sessions. Everybody will have an opportunity to comment on the changes to the Plan and the Inspector will be sent all of them before making his final decision."
