Hart District Local Plan (Strategy and Sites) 2032

The Council has received the Report from Planning Inspector Jonathan Manning concluding that the Hart Local Plan (Strategy and Sites) 2032 is sound and capable of adoption incorporating his recommended Main Modifications.

Cabinet recommended on the 5th March 2020 that Council adopt the Plan incorporating the Inspector’s recommendations (see Paper F and Draft Minutes).

Council would have made a decision on adopting the Plan on 26 March 2020, had it not been for the restrictions in place due to coronavirus. The Plan will go to Council for adoption at the earliest opportunity.

The Plan benefits from a Cabinet recommendation to adopt and is as advanced as it can be prior to adoption. The Plan therefore carries significant weight in the determination of planning applications.

A working draft of the Plan incorporating the Inspector’s recommended changes has been prepared to help read and use the Plan.
