Planning Policy update from EHDC (summarised)

The East Hampshire District Local Plan: Joint Core Strategy (JCS) is the overarching planning policy document for the District. It sets out the strategy for the future development of the District over the period to 2028 and was prepared and examined as complying with the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework. The JCS identifies the overall spatial vision and economic, social and environmental objectives for the District and the amount, type and broad location of development needed to fulfil those objectives. The spatial strategy specifically for housing is set out in Policy CP10 of the JCS and requires allocations to be made to meet the following levels of housing in East Hampshire District (outside the National Park):

  • a minimum of 700 dwellings at Alton and Horndean; a minimum of 200 dwellings at Clanfield; a minimum of 175 dwellings at both Liphook and Four Marks/South Medstead; a minimum of 150 dwellings at Rowlands Castle;
  • a minimum of 150 dwellings at other villages outside the National Park. (Ropley’s allocation is not stated but indications are, using numbers shown on EHDC approved SHLAA sites, to be a minimum of 42 dwellings by 2028. That includes the 41 homes already built or with Outline Planning Permission granted at Bighton Hill, Dunsells Lane, Hale Close and Park Lane.)


The role of Neighbourhood Planning in developing the Draft Site Allocations Plan.

Neighbourhood planning is a new element of the planning. A fundamental principle of neighbourhood planning is that it is community-led, with the community establishing local planning policies for development and use of land within its neighbourhood. Neighbourhood Development Plans enable local people to play a leading role in responding to the needs and priorities of the local community. The parishes of Alton, Bentley, Medstead, Liphook and Four Marks are currently preparing Neighbourhood Plans either individually or jointly. EHDC is working with the Neighbourhood Plan groups to integrate their emerging proposals into the Draft Site Allocations Plan.
