The development of the Welborne Plan reached another milestone today when it was agreed at a special meeting of Fareham's Council that a number of changes to the Plan would go out for consultation next week.
The changes, known as main modifications were suggested by the Independent Government Inspector, David Hogger, when outlining the initial findings from his Examination of the Plan. They relate to issues such as transport, affordable housing, the environment, energy efficiency and the locations of the secondary school and recycling centre.
You can have your say on the changes in a consultation starting on Monday 26 January through to 5.00pm on Monday 9 March 2015. You can also comment on smaller changes to the Welborne Plan known as minor modifications. Comments should only relate to the modifications and not repeat previous comments or request further changes to the plan.
Executive Member for Planning and Development, Councillor Keith Evans said: "I would ask anyone that is interested to comment on the changes during the consultation period starting next week. The Inspector will take into account any comments made before issuing a final report on whether he finds the Welborne Plan sound and legally compliant."
If the Plan is found sound and legally compliant, then the Council will be able to formally adopt it as part of the Council's Local Plan and use the policies in the Welborne Plan to assess future planning applications for Welborne by site promoters.
All the modifications can be viewed on the Council's website at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultations , at the Civic Offices and at all libraries in the Borough. Comments can be submitted online, by email or by post to Planning Policy, Fareham Borough Council, Civic Way, Fareham PO16 7AZ.
