Paper 9 - 26 March 1999 Meeting

ASSOCIATION OF HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT LOCAL AUTHORITIES

26 MARCH 1999

HAMPSHIRE COUNTY STRUCTURE PLAN (REVIEW)

REPORT OF THE COUNTY PLANNING OFFICER & PORTSMOUTH CITY PLANNING OFFICER

1. This report outlines the current position of progress on the Hampshire County Structure Plan (Review).

2. At a meeting of the Hampshire Strategic Planning Joint Advisory Panel on 2 February 1999 it was resolved:

"That with regard to housing provision the following principles be commended to the relevant committees of the three authorities as appropriate:

(a) the "baseline plus additional figure" approach to housing provision;

(b) that the baseline figure should be 42,000 dwellings for the period 2001-2011;

(c) that up to 10,000 dwellings to be released only in the event of demonstrable requirement, be included as the additional figure for the period 2001-2011 over and above the baseline figure".

The relevant committees of Hampshire County Council and Southampton City Council subsequently considered and endorsed the recommendation of the Joint Advisory Panel and it has been noted by the Portsmouth City Council's Planning Committee..

3. The next meeting of the Joint Advisory Panel on 22 March 1999 is to consider reports on the distribution of the baseline figure, the policy for managing the "up to 10,000 dwellings" and strategic gaps. Once agreement is reached on these matters then the Joint Advisory Panel will have secured an agreed way forward on all the recommendations arising from the Report of the Panel of the Examination in Public. The relevant committees of the three strategic planning authorities will then be recommended to endorse the complete package of agreements reached in the Joint Advisory Panel in connection with the Hampshire County Structure Plan (Review). This will enable proposed modifications to be published for consultation.

4. On the assumption that agreement will be reached on the outstanding matters at the Joint Advisory Panel on 22 March 1999 and that the relevant committees of the three strategic authorities endorse the complete package of agreements shortly afterwards, proposed modifications to the Hampshire County Structure Plan (Review) could be published for consultation during May. Regulations provide for a six week period for consultation.

RECOMMENDATION

That the current position of progress on the Hampshire County Structure Plan (Review) be noted and welcomed.
