Draft Local Plan Consultation

The Council is asking for comments until Friday 8 December on our Draft Local Plan PDF (14 MB). This is the first opportunity for comment on the new Local Plan. There will be further opportunities to comment as this Plan advances, which are set out in our current timetable.

This Draft Local Plan sets out potential policies and opportunities for development in the Borough i.e. proposed sites in the Council's preferred development strategy.

The ultimate purpose of a Local Plan, once adopted, is to establish how much housing and land for employment will be needed and where it will go, alongside protecting and enhancing the environment and delivering infrastructure.  It will be used to determine planning applications.  

It is important to highlight that the Draft Local Plan contains the Council's proposed policies and allocations for consultation.  Nothing has been decided yet.

Exhibitions and CAT Meetings

We have ran a variety of Exhibition and Community Action Team (CAT) meetings whereby residents have had the chance to find out about proposals for the local area and residents have had the opportunity to speak to members of the planning team and Councillors.

The Exhibitions have run from 2-6pm, whilst the CAT meetings have run from 7-8.30pm, with the exception of an extra meeting being put on at Warsash Victory Hall due to the first meeting being fully booked.

Notes from the recent CAT Meetings can be viewed below

A further Exhibition is planned for Tuesday 21 November 2017

If you have any queries with regards to past CAT meetings, exhibitions please contact . Please note not all notes, and presentations are available as they are still within the publication process, and will be available soon.
