Local Plan 2036

The production of the Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 has been underway since 2016. A great deal of work has taken place on the plan up until now to make sure that the plan meets the borough’s needs, that it is robust and that it meets the key tests the Government requires.

The Pre-Submission Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 was approved by the Full Council on 30 January and consulted on between 1 February and 18 March 2019.

The Pre-Submission Local Plan is the version of the plan which the council considers to be ‘sound’ having been informed by extensive research, before it is formally submitted for examination. It takes account of the comments made during previous consultations and takes many of the suggested changes on board.

What happens next?

We had hoped to submit the plan to the Secretary of State for examination by September 2019.  However, work is ongoing on the issue of nutrient neutrality, as well the additional evidence work on transport that we committed to complete before submission.

As soon as a submission date is known it will be posted here.

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
