Local plan

The production of the Havant Borough local plan has been underway since 2016.

A great deal of work has taken place on the plan up until now to make sure that it meets the borough’s needs, is robust and meets the key tests that the government requires.

Previous versions of the Havant Borough local plan can be found on the evolution of the local plan webpage.

Local plan: pre-submission version with changes consultation

A number of changes arose from responses received during the last consultation in 2019 and the issue of nutrient neutrality. These changes were agreed by the Full Council on 9 September 2020. 

A consultation on the changes is taking place from the 3 November until 4pm on 17 December 2020. Please see our consultation webpage for consultation material, guidance and further information.

The proposed timetable for the adoption of the emerging local plan is outlined within the local development scheme.

Adopted local plan

The council has an adopted local plan.

This is made up of the Core Strategy (2011) and the Site Allocations Plan (2014).

These will remain in place until the new Havant Borough Local Plan is adopted.
