Local Requirements List
In March 2010 the Department for Communities and Local Government issued 'Guidance on information requirements and validation' encouraging Local Authorities to review their existing local requirements lists. We have now done this and have decided to take the opportunity to reduce the local list requirement and make the format easier to use and follow in line with government guidance. You can find out more about the new Local Requirements List here.
Local Plan Part 1 (LP1) was adopted in March 2013. The adopted policies of LP1 together with the saved policies in the Winchester District Local Plan Review 2006, now form the development plan for the Winchester District and will be the basis for planning decisions.
Work is now underway on Local Plan Part 2 (the Development Management and Allocations DPD). This will incorporate both detailed development management style policies and will also allocate (non-strategic) sites. For more information please visit the Planning Policies page using the link below.
