This early stage in the development of our new Local Plan is important – for everyone who works and lives in the district, as well as anyone that visits Winchester, our market towns and countryside.
The way we live our lives, travel, work and enjoy our spare time are all influenced by the environment and the Local Plan shapes this for the future, as well as helping us tackle the climate emergency .

Strategic Issues and Priorities Consultation
Consultation on the Strategic Issues & Priorities has now closed along with the Call for Sites. We have been undertaking initial assessment of the additional sites submitted, and an updated Strategic Housing Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) will be published once reported to Cabinet. There will be two further two opportunities to become involved in the Local Plan process when we consult on the Regulation 18 Local Plan (which will allocate specific sites and include new Local Plan policies) and Regulation 19 Local Plan (which will be the version of the Local Plan that we want an Inspector to examine). This is when we will identified which sites we are allocating for development and the new policies that will be included in the new Local Plan. Please sign up for email alerts to keep updated on how you can get involved in the Local Plan.
