Planning Policy Consultations

The Council agreed on 16 May 2019 to launch the preparation of an updated Local Plan. More information on the 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

Proposed temporary revisions to the Statement of Community Involvement

National Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) has recently been updated in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and recommends that council’s review their SCI and update it in light of the government’s guidelines for helping prevent the spread of the disease.

As a result the council is making some temporary amendments to the requirements set out in the adopted SCI. These are to protect the health of our communities and staff, while still ensuring that the council can continue to successfully conduct its planning functions in a manner which is underpinned by extensive and effective community engagement.

The consultation on the proposed temporary changes to the Statement of Community Involvement runs until 4pm on Monday 3 August 2020.

More information on the proposed revision to the SCI and how to respond to the consultation can be found by visiting the Statement of Community Involvement 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.
