Have your say on 'The Draft Local Plan' for the area.

Have your say on 'The Draft Local Plan' for the area.

Local people are being encouraged to have their say on the borough’s draft local plan as the formal nine week consultation begins on Friday 28 October.

The Plan sets out a strategic vision and planning policies for the Borough over the next 18 years until 2029. The Council, like all local authorities across the country, is legally required to produce a plan for the Borough that looks at least 15 years ahead and it must identify sufficient land for development to meet the community’s needs over that period.

Council Leader Keith House says, ”At this stage the plan outlines the Council’s initial thoughts and ideas on the future of the borough. The views of local people are important to us and I encourage all local people to have their say and comment on the draft Local Plan.”

The public consultation programme will run for nine weeks from Friday 28 October 2011 to Tuesday 3 January 2012 across the borough. There will be twelve staffed public exhibitions held to provide local people with the chance to see the plans and maps and discuss issues with staff. There will also be a copy of the plan on the Council’s website together with the opportunity to provide comments online by visiting www.eastleigh.gov.uk/localplan

The Local Plan documents will also be available to view at the Civic Offices, Eastleigh Town Centre Office, local parish/town council offices and local libraries. Comments must be made by 3 January 2012 on the consultation response form that is available in hard copy and online.
