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 Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 is adopted.
In developing the Havant Borough Local Plan 2036, the first step was the Local Plan Housing Statement. This was adopted by the council in December 2016.
