We are fortunate that the Borough is such a pleasant place in which to live and work. Making sure that continues is a careful balance between sensible development to meet our changing and diverse needs as residents and conserving the area's heritage and character.

Effective planning – for now and for the future – is a key part of this. In this section of the website you can find out more about our work in this area and our services to help you.

 Fareham Borough Local Plan

To ensure we plan the Borough's development and conservation effectively, we must determine how land will be used, where and what for. This involves looking at the needs of our communities now as well as assessing what they are likely to be in the future.

 Major regeneration sites

Responsible planning involves a mix of new development, conserving areas and regenerating areas that have fallen into disrepair or disuse. There are a number of sites throughout the Borough that we are considering for regeneration. This might be to boost the local economy, to provide shops and other community facilities or to meet local housing needs.

 Historic Environment

The character of the Borough's historic towns and villages has evolved slowly over time. While we continue to develop our communities and environment to meet our needs, it is also important to conserve the area's rich heritage and character. Here you can find out more about how we do that to make sure we conserve and enhance important parts of our towns, villages, parkland and other open spaces.

 Coast protection and flooding

The Borough's coastline has a diverse range of landscapes and seascapes, including estuaries, salt marshes, soft cliffs and shingle beaches. We have a responsibility to manage it and maintain it as a safe and environmentally important area. On this section of the website, you can find out more about how we are working with partner organisations to manage our shoreline and our defences against floods and erosion.


As trees are such an important part of our landscape, there is a variety of legislation to cover the way we manage them and our woodland areas. Here, you can find a range of information about tree management – from advice about protected trees to trees on your property and from trees in our conservation areas to building near trees.


A sustainable new community is being planned for the North of Fareham, called Welborne. This will involve providing up to 6,000 homes, workplaces, schools, open spaces, shops and local community services. On this section of the website you can find out more about the plans for this important development and how you can get involved to help shape the new community.
