Work is under way on a new Portsmouth Local Plan, which will seek to deliver the Imagine Portsmouth 2040 Vision:
In 2040 Portsmouth will be an island city with an incredible waterfront, a rich cultural heritage and a strong maritime history. With a naval base, international port and strong local links across the south, we are the centre of culture and enterprise for our area. In 2040 we are very proud of Portsmouth, how we behave towards each other and how it feels to live here.
The timetable for the Local Plan will be set out in a new Local Development Scheme. The Statement of Community Involvement explains how the council consults on planning policy documents and planning applications.
An update of the timetable for the Local Plan and the Statement of Community Involvement will be considered by councillors in June 2023.
