Development Consultation Forum - Forty Acres Farm, Havant

Wednesday, 1 November, 2017

A Development Consultation Forum (DCF) will take place for the land at Forty Acres Farm, Havant Road, Havant.

A Development Consultation Forum (DCF) is essentially an opportunity for the prospective developer of a significant development to present the proposals to a wider audience prior to submitting a planning application. The council then facilitates a structured question and answer session about it. The council hopes that as a result of the DCF the developer will be better informed as to the community expectations prior to submitting a planning application.

DCF meetings are held in public and whilst the public are encouraged to attend and listen, only invited stakeholders (including residents associations), councillors and officers can speak. Although you will not be able to speak at the meeting itself, we hope you will attend to find out more about significant development proposals emerging for the borough and hear the discussion about them. There is generally a display stand showing the proposals from 5:30pm outside the meeting room. This is an excellent opportunity to find out more about what is being proposed and speak with the developer as well.

If you have any views on the proposals of the DCF, you are encouraged to contact your local councillor and/or residents’ association.  There will also be an option of completing a feedback form at the end of the debate.

The next DCF will be held to discuss the following proposal:

  • Site Address: Land at Forty Acres Farm, Havant Road, Havant
  • DCF Proposal: Residential proposal for 322 new homes (30% affordable housing), care home, allotments, ecological mitigation areas and public open space.

The Site was identified in the Local Plan Housing Statement (LPHS) under reference UE68.

The arrangements of the Forum are:

  • Location: Council Chamber, Public Service Plaza
  • Date: Tuesday 21st November 2017
  • Time: 6.00 - 8.00 pm (doors open at 5.30 pm to view a display of the proposal).

Further details, including a developer briefing note and a location plan, are available on our Development Consultation Forum webpage.
