Have your say on new planning guidance East Hampshire District Council is drawing up new planning g

East Hampshire District Council is drawing up new planning guidance to advise on what sites may be developed outside the defined settlements.

The Housing Outside Settlement Boundaries Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been written to give further guidance on what housing proposals may be suitable for sites outside the district’s towns and villages, given that the Local Plan will not be available for some time.

Anyone can read and offer comments on the SPD in a consultation to be run from today (Tuesday 9 August) to 5pm Tuesday 20 September. The consultation is running for six weeks, rather than the usual four, to take account of the holiday season.

Cllr Angela Glass, EHDC Portfolio Holder for planning, said: “We are preparing a Local Plan that will shape the future of our district until 2040.

“In the meantime, this SPD will help determine planning applications while we work on the new Local Plan.

“We want to hear what you think about the SPD, please follow the link, take part in the consultation and let us know your views.”
