A public consultation on the emerging local plan is being held between 21 November 2022 and 16 January 2023.

The local plan sets out how we will deliver homes, jobs and services to the parts of East Hampshire outside the South Downs National Park over the next two decades.

Please get involved, we can’t do it without you.
