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?

Now that the consultation has finished, we will collect the responses together, analyse what they say and produce a summary of them, which will be published here in due course.

The Local Plan will then be submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, together with the comments received and the Local Plan’s Examination will start. This is expected in the Autumn of 2019. Further detail on the expected timescales moving forward is in the Local Development Scheme.

The council also ran consultations on the following matters at the same time as the Pre-Submission Havant Borough Local Plan 2036:

The comments received are now being analysed. The Parking Supplementary Planning Document, Statement of Community Involvement and the review of the Old Bedhampton Conservation Area will be considered by the Cabinet and Full Council in due course.

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
