Winchester Local Plan Part 2 – consultation starts

Public consultation on Winchester’s Local Plan Part 2 starts today, Friday 24 October, and runs for six weeks until Friday 5 December 2014.

LPP2 allocates sites for development and sets out detailed ‘development management’ policies.

Along with the Core Strategy (Local Plan Part 1, 2013) it will provide the range of site allocations and planning policies needed to guide development over the next 15-20 years.

There has been much work with Parish Councils, communities and other organisations to develop the draft Local Plan but this is the first time LPP2 has been consulted on in its entirety.

A series of exhibitions has been arranged where officers will be available to explain the Plan’s proposals and answer questions on them. Visit for details.
