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

Wootton St Lawrence Neighbourhood Plan

The council is currently consulting on the submission Wootton St Lawrence Neighbourhood Plan until Wednesday 31 July 2019. The Wootton St Lawrence Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally and guide development in the parish up until 2029.

There has been a previous public consultation on the draft Wootton St Lawrence Neighbourhood Plan organised by Wootton St Lawrence Parish Council during January and February 2018. Now that the Plan has been submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council it is the final opportunity to have your say on this document before it is considered at an independent examination.

Call for Sites

The council is undertaking a Call for Sites consultation until Wednesday 3 July 2019.

As part of evidence gathering to inform the annual update of the SHELAA, we are undertaking a ‘call for sites’ for developers, landowners or other interested parties to let us know about sites that could be suitable for residential, employment or other development.

Sites promoted should be capable of accommodating at least five residential units or for employment sites the land area should be at least 0.25 hectares or able to accommodate at least 500 square metres of floorspace.

If you have, or know of any sites that you would like to be considered for future development, please submit details using the Site Submission form. Information on how to complete the form is included in the guidance notes.
