Local Plan Update

It has been a long time since we heard anything concerning Portsmouth’s next Local Plan. The ‘Local Development Scheme’ came into effect at the beginning of December, and considering it aims to “inform local residents and other stakeholders about the development plans that the city council will be preparing over the next three years, the subject matter of those plans and the geographical areas they cover”, it has got off to a shaky start, as its first publication is astonishingly difficult to find on the council website. A linked copy may be found here. The next step we can expect is consultation on a draft plan in June 2020, then consultation on the final plan in November, ahead of submission to the Secretary of State in spring 2021.
