Local Plan Consultation November 2022

Winchester City Council has published the draft Winchester District Local Plan for public consultation. The consultation closes at 23:59 hours on Wednesday 14th December 2022.  

The Plan covers key themes for Winchester including the climate emergency, affordable homes, and protecting and enhancing our natural environment.
To have your say, please submit your feedback online.

After the consultation period, WCC will produce a final draft local plan considering the feedback received.

This will be subject to a further 6-week consultation. Then a finalised plan will be sent for review by an independent planning inspector in early 2024. 

The timetable for adopting the local plan is here
