Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Information


05.10.2020 Issues and Options Consultation: The consultation documents are available to view on the council’s website


STaNHD will be publishing their response to these documents very shortly and asking for your help in informing the Council of your opinions.

The Basingstoke and Deane Council communication regarding this latest consultation document.

In 2019 the council agreed to launch an update to the current adopted Local Plan, reflecting new legal requirements to review Local Plans every five years.


The council is now consulting on issues and options for the updated Local Plan. This is the first stage in the process and is non-statutory. The primary purpose of the consultation is to identify the key planning issues facing the borough over the next Local Plan period (to at least 2038) and consider suitable options to address them. The consultation provides all stakeholders with the opportunity to influence the plan at an early stage.


In addition to the main Issues and Options Consultation Document, a number of other documents have also been published for comment including a Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report, Site Assessment Methodology, Promoted Sites Document and a Settlement Study (Part 1). Key service and infrastructure providers will also be receiving a questionnaire to gauge views on future service provision in the borough to support the Local Plan Update.


The consultation will run from Monday 28 September 2020 until Monday 9 November 2020. Representations should arrive no later than 4pm on 9 November 2020. All representations received will be made available to view publicly.


Representations can be submitted using the council’s online consultation portal, by email or by post.
