Emerging plans

New plans are drafted, consulted upon and published on a regular basis.

The list of our current emerging plans is as follows:

Southampton City Vision

This will be our new Local Plan, a document that will set out the future development of new homes, work spaces, infrastructure and facilities across the city over the next 20 years and beyond.

Find out about Southampton City Vision.

Southampton Tall Buildings Study

This document was jointly commissioned with Historic England and published in May 2017, but will be formally adopted as a supplementary planning document (SPD) when Southampton City Vision is adopted.

Draft Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan Partial Update

Jointly produced with Hampshire County Council, Portsmouth City Council, New Forest National Park Authority and South Downs National Park Authority, the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan Partial Update provides for a steady supply of minerals to meet the demands to build, for example, new homes, roads, schools, and hospitals. It identifies sites for waste management facilities, so that the millions of tonnes of waste generated in the area can be processed whilst increasing recycling rates and reducing landfill and ensures new minerals and waste facilities protect the environment, local communities, and address climate change.
