Strategic Planning

What is in my area?

Hampshire is a dynamic county, continuing development is essential for maintaining it's sustainability and prosperity. There are a number of existing mineral and waste sites that have received planning permission in Hampshire. These permissions can be limited to only operate for a number of years (temporary) or permanent. A list of existing, permitted sites, grouped by district or by mineral/waste planning authority are available in the Sites List which is available on the Facts and Figures webpage.

Planning applications are frequently received for changes or extensions to existing permissions as well as applications for new mineral or waste development.

You can get involved in the planning process by:

  • responding to planning applications that are open for consultation;
  • responding to new draft policy that guide the decision making process when it is under consultation;
  • finding out whether a Liaison Panel for an existing permitted site exists; or
  • signing up to our policy mailing list to be informed when new or revised policy information is out for consultation
