Basingstoke and Deane has issued a ‘call for sites’ to inform the update of their new Local Plan for the Borough. Submissions are invited for all land uses including residential, employment and other development. The Borough has a high housing number to meet and the review of the Local Plan must allocate enough sites to meet housing needs for the next 15 years.
A timetable for the review of the Local Plan has also been published, with an early consultation likely later in 2019. It is anticipated that the Plan will then progress to adoption in summer 2023.
Site promotions must be submitted to the Council by 3rd July 2019. Bell Cornwell planners have excellent knowledge of the Borough of Basingstoke and Deane area and we would be delighted to advise you further on how best to promote your land or site/s. This is a brilliant opportunity to get sites in front of the Council right at the beginning of the local plan review process.
