Fareham Borough Council is inviting people and interested parties to comment on the Development Sites & Policies Plan until 5pm on 11 April 2014.
These comments are known as representations and will need to focus on whether the Plan meets 'soundness' criteria, such as, whether it meets national planning guidelines. Representations can also focus on whether the plan was prepared in line with legal requirements.
Fareham Borough Council's Executive Member for Planning and Development, Councillor Keith Evans, said: "The Development Sites and Policies Plan sets out our approach to managing and delivering development identified in the Core Strategy for the Borough (excluding Welborne) to 2026.
Your representations will be forwarded on to the Planning Inspectorate who will independently examine the Plan later this year, so your views really do count."
Following the representation period the Plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State, and an independent inspector will be appointed to hold a public examination into the 'soundness' of the plan. This is expected to be held in the second half of 2014.
You can complete the representation form in the following ways:
• Online: View the Plan online and complete our online representation forms.
• Email: to firstname.lastname@example.org the representation form (a PDF and MS Word version of the form can be found on the Council's
website at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultations ).
• By post: to Planning and Environment, Fareham Borough Council, Civic Offices, Civic Way, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 7AZ.
