Development Management and Site Allocations (LPP2)

Forwarded from Shedfield Parish Council:

Public Consultation on the draft Winchester District Local Plan Part 2: Development Management and Site Allocations

Notification under the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012


Since the beginning of 2013 Winchester City Council has been working with Parish Councils, communities and other organisations to develop the draft Local Plan Part 2 – Development Management and Site Allocations. The Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2) follows the development strategy set out in Local Plan Part 1 – Joint Core Strategy (2013), and includes development management policies that update and will replace (once the LPP2 is adopted) the remaining “saved” policies from the Winchester District Local Plan Review (2006).


The LPP2 also allocates sites for development in Winchester, and at the market towns and larger villages of Bishop’s Waltham, Colden Common, Kings Worthy, New Alresford, Swanmore, Waltham Chase and Wickham to meet the requirements set in the Core Strategy. Housing allocations for Denmead are set out in the Denmead Neighbourhood Plan but development management policies in the LPP2 will apply at Denmead. Most development within the South Hampshire Urban Area is already catered for through strategic allocations in the Core Strategy at West of Waterlooville and North Whiteley; however the LPP2 reviews and carries forward a couple of outstanding allocations at Whiteley from the Local Plan review.


Where boundaries are defined for the application of particular policies, such as settlement gaps, town centres and primary shopping frontages, these have been reviewed to ensure that they are up-to-date and allow for the development needs and allocations in the plan. Boundaries are shown on the Policies Map which accompanies the Plan.


Local Plan Part 2 covers the part of the District that lies outside the South Downs National Park. The National Park Authority has commenced preparation of its own local plan with a view to adoption by 2017.


The Plan, together with the Sustainability Appraisal / Strategic Environmental Assessment (SA/SEA) and the Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA), is available for comment for a period of 6 weeks from 24th October until 5th December 2014. These and other supporting documents can be viewed:

– Online on the City Council’s website –

One Response to Development Management and Site Allocations (LPP2)

  1. Let’s hope that the planning dept. take note of Eric Pickles’ statements:
    “The new planning guidance states explicitly for the first time that “once established, Green Belt boundaries should only be altered in exceptional circumstances”.
    It over-rides existing guidance which states that “inappropriate development” on the Green Belt “should not be approved except in very special circumstances”.
    Mr Pickles told The Daily Telegraph: “Protecting our Green Belt must be paramount. Local people don’t want to lose their countryside to urban sprawl, or see the vital green lungs around their towns and cities to unnecessary development.”
    The full article can be read here in the online Daily Telegraph:
