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

Laverstoke and Freefolk Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan SPD

The Laverstoke and Freefolk Conservation Area was designated in 1990 by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, in recognition of the special architectural and historic interest of the area.

From time to time it is important to review appraisals of conservation area and to prepare Management Plans, and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has a duty to do so.

From 25 August 2021 to 13 October 2021, the council will be consulting with the communities to review and update Laverstoke and Freefolk Conservation Area Appraisal, which clearly defines what it is about the area that needs to be preserved or enhanced. This document will then be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document by the Council.

To view or download the draft SPD and to find out how to respond go to Laverstoke and Freefolk Review page.

Call for Sites

The council undertook a Call for Sites consultation which closed in 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.
