A confidential draft report from the Government Planning Inspector about Fareham Borough Council's Core Strategy has been received by the Council for fact checking.
This follows an examination in public which took place in May of this year, when the Planning Inspector listened to proposals for the next 15 to 20 years about where new housing and businesses will be built in the Borough of Fareham, as well as highlighting areas that will be protected from future development. The Inspector also considered new infrastructure needs (such as improved roads, open space and community facilities), housing need, flood management, transport, the environment and business and employment growth.
The Core Strategy includes specific development proposals for Coldeast, Daedalus, Fareham town centre and a new community to the North of Fareham.
The draft report contains details of the Inspector's findings of the examination into the core strategy, and Fareham Borough Council has been asked by the Inspector to go through it carefully to make sure that everything in the report is factually correct.
During this stage, the report remains confidential and the Council has until 26 July to send it back to the Planning Inspector, who then has one week to send the final report to the Council. Once received, the Council will then publish the report.
The Executive Leader of the Council, Councillor Se�n Woodward said "We have received the report earlier than expected, and officers have now started the fact checking exercise. It is hoped that the final report by the Planning Inspector about the core strategy will be received within the next three weeks."
