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.

Havant Borough Local Plan: Pre-Submission version with changes

There are a number of changes that have arisen from responses received during the consultation and the ongoing issue of nutrient neutrality.

These changes were considered and agreed by the Cabinet on 1 July and by Full Council on the 9 September 2020.  A consultation on these changes will follow shortly, before the plan is submitted to the Secretary of State for an independent examination.

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 Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 is adopted
