Press Release

14 July 2021

Come and have your say on Fareham’s Local Plan

Do you want to have your say on the next step towards our new Local Plan? The Council will be running a series of public meetings and exhibitions across the Borough from 20-26 July about its Revised Publication Local Plan.

The exhibitions are 3-5:30pm and each one will be followed later that day by a Community Action Team (CAT) meeting from 6-7:30pm. At these meetings, residents will be able to watch a presentation and ask questions about the Plan.

The dates and locations are as follows:

Following the Government’s announcement on Monday there is now no need to book in advance to attend an exhibition.  Our approach on the day will be to manage numbers to ensure venues do not get overly busy so visitors may be asked to wait for a few minutes until others have left.

For the CAT meetings we are retaining a booking system so we can monitor the number of people wishing to attend. Each venue has a fairly large capacity but if the number of registrations approaches that figure we will look to add an additional meeting at that venue.

Cllr Seán Woodward, Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: “I’m delighted that we are once again able to hold CAT meetings as a way for people to have their say after more than a year of it not being possible.

“Anyone who can’t make an exhibition or CAT meeting, or who would like to know more in the meantime, can visit our virtual exhibition about the Plan on our website. Our Local Plan will influence the decisions we make about development in the Borough for years to come and residents’ feedback will be crucial.”

The Council’s consultation on the Revised Publication Local Plan began on 18 June 2021 and runs until 30 July 2021. More information and a link to the virtual exhibition can be found here: www.fareham.gov.uk/localplanconsultation.
