The Welborne Planning Obligations & Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) sets out Fareham Borough Council's approach to securing satisfactory development and essential infrastructure for Welborne, including the delivery of affordable housing.
This builds upon the Local Plan Part 3: Welborne Publication Draft Plan, which introduced the Council's intention to produce a Planning Obligations and Affordable Housing SPD to provide more detailed guidance on these matters and provide a useful Development Management tool against which planning applications can be assessed.

The draft SPD was approved for consultation at Executive on 2 June 2014. The consultation closed on 6 August 2014.
Under the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004 (the Regulations), Councils must carry out a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of land-use and spatial plans. As such, we have undertaken the screening process which has determined that an SEA is not required for this SPD and we have consulted on this screening process with the appropriate statutory organisations.
Following consultation on the SPD in June - August 2014, the Council produced a Summary of Representations and Council's Initial Response (203 KB) document which provides the Council's initial response to each of the representations received during the consultation and an indication of the revisions that the Council will look at making to the SPD.
This SPD supplements the Local Plan Part 3: Welborne which is currently subject to examination by the Secretary of State. Consequently, if changes to the Welborne Plan are made as part of the examination, the SPD may also need to be updated to reflect these changes. With this in mind, the planned adoption of the Welborne Planning Obligations & Affordable Housing SPD will take place at the same time as the Welborne Plan, which is anticipated to be in early 2015.
