Housing and Employment Allocations (Part 2 Local Plan)

The Local Plan - Housing and Employment Allocations is the second part in a suite of development plan documents and follows on from the Joint Core Strategy.

Its primary purpose is to identify specific sites to meet the individual housing and employment targets set out in policies CP3 and CP10 of the Joint Core Strategy, and to set out guidance for the development of these sites.

The Local Plan (Part 2): Housing and Employment Allocations was adopted on 7 April 2016.

The East Hampshire District Local Plan: Housing and Employment Allocations only covers the area of East Hampshire outside the South Downs National Park. This is because the Park Authority is the Local Planning Authority for the SDNP and is producing a separate Local Plan for the whole of the SDNP.
