Regulation 18 Draft Plan Consultation

Hampshire County Council and its partner Authorities, Southampton City Council, Portsmouth City Council, New Forest National Park Authority and South Downs National Park Authority (collectively known as the Hampshire Authorities), are working to produce a partial update to the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan (the Plan) which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the Plan Area up until 2040.

The partial update to the Plan will build upon the currently adopted Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan (2013), eventually providing new and updated policies based on up-to-date evidence of the current levels of provision for minerals and waste facilities in the Plan Area. Importantly, the partially updated Plan aims to establish the future levels of provision required to meet national and regional policy targets and objectives. It will set out an updated vision of how this will be achieved and provide details of strategic sites that we propose will deliver the vision.

The Hampshire Authorities will be inviting feedback from statutory consultees, stakeholders, communities, local organisations and businesses on the Draft Plan.

The Draft Plan Consultation will be run for 12 weeks between the 8 November 2022 and 31 January 2023.
