Hart District Local Plan

Hart District Council recently consulted on the Draft Local Plan Strategy and Sites 2011-2032. The consultation documents and further details are available at www.hart.gov.uk/draft-local-plan.

The Local Plan is the key local planning policy document. It is underpinned by an evidence base to ensure that all future planning policy and decisions are based on robust and up-to-date information.

The timetable for preparing a new local plan is set out in the Local Development Scheme: Sixth Revision.

Hart Brownfield Register

Hart District Council is currently preparing a Brownfield Register i.e. a register of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development.  All local planning authorities are required to compile their registers by 31st December 2017. 

In 2016 Hart District Council was proud to be one of a number of local planning authorities who agreed to pilot the creation of a Brownfield Register. The pilot Brownfield Register for Hart can be downloaded here. Sites identified in the pilot register do not have automatic permission in principle, nor is any permission granted other than through current planning procedures and policy.  This Register is a pilot only and carries no statutory or other weight. The new official register will be compiled in light of up to date government regulations and guidance.  It will update the pilot study, in light of the latest information on suitable sites and the availability of SANG.

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The Council has not yet introduced CIL but is in the process of setting a charge. Further details on CIL will be set out on the website in due course.

Neighbourhood Plans

A number of Neighbourhood Plans are being prepared across the district. Further information can be found on our Neighbourhood Plans page.
