An Update on the Local Plan from the WCC Strategic Planning Team

Notification of Public Consultation on the Regulation 18 draft Local Plan 2039

The Regulation 18 Draft Local Plan will be open for public consultation for a period of 6 weeks from 2nd of November until 23:59 hours on 14th of December.

The consultation welcomes views on the key issues of the Local Plan, and we want as many people as possible to be part of this process that will set out the future of the district.

The Local Plan will cover all of Winchester District except for the part within the South Downs National Park (which has its own Local Plan). The Local Plan will set out the development strategy and policy framework for the area and allocate or designate land accordingly. Once adopted, will be used to guide decisions on planning applications up to 2039.


What will be included in the draft Regulation 18 Local Plan?

The draft Regulation 18 Local Plan will bring together and review existing Development Management policies from the existing adopted Local Plan (Part 1 & Part 2), the Gypsy and Travellers Development Plan Document and it will include new Local Plan policies and site specific allocations that are needed to deliver the development strategy in the new Local Plan.

The new Local Plan will be structured so that polices addressing particular issues will be grouped together under a number of specific topics.

This consultation will give everyone the opportunity to have a say in the final shape of the Local Plan.  It will be important that you take part and also please help us reach as many of our members of public as possible.
