The Draft Local Plan

Large Development Sites consultation

This consultation is another stage in the process to produce a new Local Plan and will focus on large development sites in East Hampshire. Please visit our dedicated Large Development Sites webpage for more information.

The consultation is open from 9am Tuesday 3 September to Midnight on Tuesday 15 October 2019.

It is called the Local Plan Large Development Sites Consultation and gives residents the chance to tell us anything that that might affect a site’s suitability for development. It’s also a good opportunity to say what infrastructure is needed in that area.

The consultation will help decide the right location for future development and which large development sites to include in the Local Plan.

It will not include other policies and sites already considered in the draft Local Plan.

The consultation will last six weeks and include six drop-in events.

The Draft Local Plan

The draft plan only covers areas in East Hampshire outside the South Downs National Park - less than half the district. This includes Alton and the surrounding area as well as Whitehill & Bordon and the southern parishes of Horndean, Clanfield and Rowlands Castle.

A six-week consultation period ran from Tuesday 5 February until Tuesday 19 March and included ten drop-in sessions around the district. A call for sites was reopened during the consultation period, to enable respondents to suggest additional sites. This call for sites is now closed.

The key consultation documents can still be viewed below:

The draft Local Plan was also supported by evidence base which can be viewed here. A summary of responses to the draft Local Plan consultation is also available to view on the evidence base webpage.
