Views invited on changes to the new Local Plan
Borough residents are being asked for their views on some
possible changes to the draft Plan resulting from new information
and from some of the comments that were received as part of the
initial consultation. The new consultation begins on 1 June and
will continue until midday on Friday 13 July 2012.
The Council undertook a public consultation on the new draft
Local Plan for the borough at the end of 2012 and received over
2700 comments from around 1200 people and organisations. The
Council will be considering responses to these comments and an
amended version of the Local Plan in July 2012.
Local people are now being asked for their views on changes to
the link between the construction of a Botley bypass and the
housing development proposals, changes and additions to sites
allocated for housing and some additional sites for development to
Local people are also being asked for comments on draft
technical documents that examine aspects of the draft Local Plan -
the Sustainability Appraisal Report, Habitats Regulations
Assessment and Transport Assessment.
The documents will be available online on the Council’s website
and paper copies will be available at the Council’s Civic Offices
and Eastleigh town centre office as well as at parish and town
council offices and local libraries. All people who
previously commented will also receive a newsletter informing them
of this new consultation and the opportunity to comment.
Following this consultation, the Council will bring together all
the comments made on both the draft consultations and prepare a
revised version of the Local Plan for a formal consultation.
This will be the ‘pre-submission’ document, to be considered by the
Cabinet and full Council on 26 July 2012. The
consultation on this document will start early in August and
continue until early October.
