Kings Worthy

This area gives you access to various documents that are part of the evidence base for Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2), and which directly concern Kings Worthy. These include reports and studies produced by Winchester City Council or in collaboration with Kings Worthy and Headbourne Worthy Parish Councils. The documents can be downloaded below.

The preparation of LPP2 follows on directly from Local Plan Part 1 (Joint Core Strategy) and includes new or revised development management policies and site-specific development allocations based on Kings Worthy’s needs. City Council officers have worked closely with the Parish Council and its LPP2 Steering Group in order to identify these needs and to produce the necessary evidence to justify the new policies and allocations.

As part of this collaborative approach, the Parish and City Councils undertook an informal consultation with the local community on options for new housing allocations; this consultation ended on 10 January 2014 . A public exhibition of developers’ outline proposals for 25-50 dwellings on three alternative sites around the village took place in November 2013, was repeated in December 2013, and January 2014. Images of the display boards can be downloaded from the attachments below.

The prospective developers of the site – HAB Housing – have produced several possible options for the disposition of uses within the site and these were displayed alongside the Local Plan public exhibition on 10 November 2014:-

The Draft LPP2 document was published for consultation between 24 October and 12.00 midday 5 December 2014. Further details can be viewed on the following web page:-
