Fareham Borough Local Plan

We write policies that guide future development in Fareham. The planning documents that we prepare are concerned with provision of housing, jobs, sports and leisure, transport  and community facilities, as well as the protection of the environment and considering the impact of climate change.

The Fareham Borough Local Plan consists of three parts and sets out the Planning Strategy for the Borough up to 2026. The Council has recently committed to a review of its Local Plan to reflect emerging housing and employment needs until 2036.
