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 published below for comment during the consultation period from 11 February to Monday 25 March 2019. The summary document sets out the main points that have been identified. Following this the Plan will be drafted for full public consultation later this year.
You can discuss the evidence at "Drop-in" sessions during the consultation period
- Portsmouth Central Library (Guildhall Square), Guildhall Walk PO1 2DX

We are also consulting on the Tipner and Hilsea development area. This is open from 11 February to 25 March 2019. For further information on the consultation and its events, visit our Future of Tipner and Horsea consultation page.
Please give all your feedback via our online consultation survey or via the paper copies available in the above locations. An electronic version can also be posted or emailed to the addresses below.
