The new Local Plan will update and replace the three documents currently in use. It will include policies for the development and protection of land and site allocations for new development or for the re-development of existing buildings. The Local Development Scheme gives a timetable of activity that may be updated as the plan progresses, and a Statement of Community Involvement sets out how we consult when dealing with planning applications and preparing the new Local Plan.
Since our Issues and options consultation in 2017, we have prepared or received a wide range of evidence studies which were published for comment from 11 February to Monday 25 March 2019. The summary document sets out the main points that have been identified. Taking into account all the responses received until now, a draft Plan will be prepared for full public consultation.
The summary document of responses for Local Plan evidence based documents sets out the main points identified. Copies of the individual responses received can be found at Public Access Portsmouth.
The detailed evidence base studies being gathered for the emerging new Local Plan are set out on the new local plan evidence page.
