    Planning

    hard hatThe planning system is designed to protect the environment in towns and villages as well as the countryside.

    East Hampshire District Council works within national planning policy set out by the Department for Communities and Local Government, as well as local policies which give guidelines about what can be built and where.

    Our aim is to balance preserving the beauty of our district, while giving people and local businesses the facilities they need.

    We have teams who are responsible for different roles in this important task:  

    • planning policy
    • planning development    
    • heritage    
    Planning policy

    The Planning Policy Team prepares policies and provides advice to guide development in the district. This includes working on the 'Local Development Framework' which outlines how planning will be managed in East Hampshire.

    Local people and businesses are encouraged to comment as the documents are prepared to make sure the guidelines fit local needs and expectations.

     

    Planning development

    The Planning Development Team looks at the appearance of new development, how it will affect the surrounding environment, highway access, protecting and conserving the natural and built environment of the area. They will give advice and make decisions on planning applications, as well as dealing with appeals and making sure developers follow the terms of planning consents.

    Heritage

    Members of the team advise on the impact of planning applications on historic buildings (these are normally listed buildings) and conservation areas, trees and the landscape.

    They also play a crucial part in preparing policies and good practice guidance to help people understand what they should be doing to protect the district's special qualities.

    Building control

    For most building work, consent in needed under the building regulations.

    The Building Control team checks that the health, safety and welfare of people is safeguarded in buildings. That means making sure new buildings are structurally sound and meet minimum standards in health and safety, energy conservation and access for disabled people.
