Press Release

18 June 2021

Time to have your say on Fareham's Revised Publication Local Plan

Fareham Borough Council has launched a consultation on its proposals to achieve housing numbers required by Government as it moves towards finalising a new Local Plan for the Borough.

The consultation is now online here: http://www.fareham.gov.uk/localplanconsultation and will run until the Friday 30 July. The Council is encouraging all those who live and work in the Borough to take the time to have their say.

With Government restrictions still in place it remains unclear as to whether or not physical meetings will go ahead.  However, all relevant information, including a presentation about the latest proposals, is available from the Council’s online exhibition: https://www.fareham.gov.uk/have_your_say/localplan/intro.aspx

Anyone who is unable to access the exhibition or the details of the Revised Publication Local Plan online can call 01329 824601 where they will be able to:

As with previous consultations, a special edition of Fareham Today will also be hand-delivered to every household across the Borough between 25 June and 3 July. This sets out how residents can have their say from the safety of their own homes. Consultation respondents must confirm whether they think the Council has complied with certain requirements when developing the Revised Publication Local Plan and why, so this special addition of Fareham Today will also advise how to respond correctly. 

If you commented on the Publication Plan back in November and December 2020, there is no need to repeat your comment. They will be sent to the Planning Inspector examining the plan in addition to all responses received on this consultation.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward, said: “The development of our Local Plan has been complicated and set back by a number of changes outside our control.  The Government’s National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) has determined that that our housing requirement should be increased yet again and we have been working tirelessly to deliver a Local Plan which achieves these additional houses without compromising the area’s distinctive characteristics which is a huge challenge.

“This consultation is the final opportunity for our residents to have their say before the new Revised Publication Local Plan is submitted to the Government for consideration. I urge everyone to have their say so we can ensure that the Plan works for all the residents of Fareham.”


ENDS
