Hart District Local Plan Strategy and Sites

The Hart Local Plan Strategy and Sites 2016-2032 Proposed Submission Version was submitted for examination on Monday 18 June 2018.  For further information go to the Local Plan Examination webpage.

Update: Following the consultation on Proposed Modifications to the Plan we anticipate a report from the Inspector in late December 2019 or January 2020 subject to the Inspector’s consideration of the responses received. Should this timescale be realised, we estimate Local Plan adoption in February 2020. The Hart Local Plan Strategy and Sites 2016-2032 Submission Version should be considered a material consideration in the determination of planning applications, and that development that accords with its policies will not be seen as representing departures that require referral to Full Council for determination.  See Paper F Cabinet June 2018 and Draft Minutes
