In order to meet the emerging housing and employment requirement for the next 20 years, the Council has to identify suitable sites and broad locations for both housing and employment use. During November and December 2015 the Council invited developers, landowners, agents, individuals and other interested parties to submit details of sites they wished to be considered for future housing or employment development in Fareham Borough. To be considered within the assessment, the sites submitted for potential housing development had to be capable of delivering 5 or more dwellings.
The sites submitted during the Call for Sites exercise are being assessed for their development potential as part of a new Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). The SHLAA will include an assessment of all of the sites which were submitted during the Call for Sites. The new SHLAA will published as part of the Draft Plan consultation in spring 2017 in order to support new housing and employment site allocations within the Draft Local Plan.
If you would like to discuss your site submission in further detail with the Planning Strategy team, then please contact us on 01329 824601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Update** The publication of the SHLAA will form part of the Draft Plan consultation which will now be published in Autumn 2017. Further details on the progress of the draft plan can be found in the Local Plan Review.
