Community Action Team CATS

What are CAT meetings?

Listening to your views is essential to the Council providing better services.  One of the ways we listen to residents is by holding public meetings, known as Community Action Team (CAT) meetings. The meetings are a great way to keep up to date with what is going on in your local area.

Upcoming CAT dates:

The current agenda for the consultation is still in development.

An update will be provided in due course.

Local Plan Review Exhibitions and CAT meetings

Fareham Borough Council held Exhibitions and Community Action Team (CAT) meetings during October and November about the review of the Borough's Draft Local Plan 2036 by attending the CAT meetings and Exhibitions.

The Local Plan looks at housing, employment space, and places where retail and leisure facilities should be provided.  It also earmarks areas to be protected, such as countryside, community and leisure buildings, and open spaces.

To find out more about the draft local plan, there is a dedicated consultation page.

At the exhibitions and meetings residents have found out about proposals for the local area and had the opportunity to speak directly to planning officers and Councillors. Notes from the Meetings is accessible by hyperlink below.

About CAT Meetings

Most CAT meetings take place when there is a local 'hot topic' that is of interest to residents taking place at a crunch time. If you have an issue that you would like to be considered for a CAT meeting please contact your local Councillor or email

There are also yearly summer meetings taking place in 5 areas across Fareham which give you an opportunity to quiz Councillor Woodward.
