Planning Policy

Planning Policy

Planning Policy deals with the preparation of the Local Plan. The Local Plan is a series of documents which set out the planning policies for Winchester District to guide development. The statutory documents which comprise the Development Plan include:-

The Local Plan Part 2 – Development Management and Allocations Document is being developed and will also form part of the Development Plan when adopted, replacing the saved policies of the 2006 Local Plan.  The Council has also adopted a series of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) which set out non-statutory planning guidance.

We are currently consulting on the Publication (Pre-Submission) Local Plan Part 2. The consultation will run until noon 21 December 2015. All responses must be received at the City Council's offices by this time.
