The Consultation has now closed on our Draft Local Plan (14 MB) and we are analysing the results. This was 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.
You can find out more about what the Draft Local Plan is and why we are consulting on it by reading the Special Edition of Fareham Today (5 MB) You can read the Draft Local Plan (14 MB) in full or navigate to the section of interest to you using the buttons further down the page.

Subsequent to publication of the Draft Local Plan, an addendum has been added to housing allocation HA2 - Newgate Lane South, Peel Common. The addendum reads: 'The site promoter has advised Fareham Borough Council that the potential access identified via the demolition of two houses on Tukes Avenue (165 and 167) is a factual error. The site promoter has confirmed that potential vehicle access via these properties is not being pursued'.
The Draft Local Plan is accompanied by a Draft Policies Map which shows the whole Borough. The Policies Plan can be viewed on the Draft Local Plan 2036 webpage.
The evidence used to support the Draft Local Plan can be found on the Supporting Evidence webpage.
We 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. You can view the notes from these on the dedicated CAT webpage.
If you have any queries with regards to past CAT meetings, exhibitions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
