Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan

Hampshire County Council, in partnership with Southampton and Portsmouth City Councils and the New Forest and South Downs National Park Authorities, have published a Schedule of draft modifications to the Submission Plan for comment on their soundness.

Document Title: Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan

Subject matter and area covered: Following consultation on the 'soundness' of the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan which took place during November and December 2011 the submission version (the Submission Plan) was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 29 February 2012. The Planning Inspector appointed to undertake the examination was Mr Andrew S Freeman and the public examination took place between 6-15 June this year.

On 15 June 2012 the public hearing was adjourned to enable the Hampshire Authorities to prepare a schedule of draft changes to the Submission Plan. These changes arose from the need to comply with new national policy (the National Planning Policy Framework), new information which was tabled for the Hearing and where the Inspector considered that certain elements of the plan should be reviewed by the Hampshire Authorities to ensure that it is sound – that is justified, effective, consistent with National Policy and positively prepared.

Representation Period: From 22nd October 2012 to 17th December 2012

Representations can be made in writing or electronically, using the response form, and sent to:

County Planning Policy Team,

Economy, Transport, and Environment Department,

Hampshire County Council,

The Castle,


SO23 8UD

Responses must be limited to the proposed changes only; the remainder of the plan has already been subject to previous public consultation and subsequent public examination. There are two types of modifications. 'Main modifications' are intended to address soundness matters. 'Additional modifications' concern significant and minor matters. It is the main modifications that will be the focus of the Inspector's attention.
