Planning Policy Consultations

The Council agreed on 16 May 2019 to launch the preparation of an updated Local Plan. More information on the Local Development Scheme (LDS) which sets out which planning documents will be produced and when can be found here. Visit the LDS and Local Plan update for more information.

We are keen to engage with our local residents and a range of stakeholders in the development of planning policy documents. If you would like to get involved and comment on an open consultation, register or amend your details for future consultations, please visit the Basingstoke and Deane Consultation Portal.

The easiest way to respond to one of the consultations is through the Consultation Portal. Alternatively, you can download a comments form from the consultation web pages and send your comments to us by email or post.

Current Planning Policy Consultations

Local Plan Update: Issues and Options Consultation

The council is undertaking an Issues and Options consultation to inform the Local Plan Update. This non-statutory consultation asks for views on the identified key planning issues facing the borough over the next Local Plan period (to at least 2038) and potential options to address them. The consultation provided all stakeholders with the opportunity to shape the plan at an early stage.

The period for submission of comments will run from Monday 28 September 2020 until Monday 9 November 2020.

To access consultation documents and for details on how to comment, please visit the council's Issues and Options page.

Call for Sites

The council recently undertook a Call for Sites consultation which closed on Wednesday 3 July 2019. This consultation asked for developers, landowners or other interested parties to let us know about sites that could be suitable for residential, employment or other development.

Whilst the formal 'Call for Sites' consultation has now closed, the council welcomes all site submissions and details of all sites submitted will be placed on file for a future review of the SHELAA. The submission form and corresponding guidance note remains available by clicking on the link below.
