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
  • 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

For more information on what planning documents we intend to develop or update in the future, timescales for doing so, and information on how we will consult people throughout the various planning processes, please see our Local Development Scheme and Statement of Community Involvement webpage.
