Eastleigh Borough Council are continuing with their Local Plan Review with the latest consultations commencing on the 25th June. The council remain under increased pressure to produce a viable local plan that can deliver 16,250 homes of which there remains in excess of 5,600 that will need additional greenfield sites to be allocated. In addition to this, there are 2000 dwellings from Southampton that remain unmet.

As referred to in the March update, Eastleigh were one of 14 LPA's that were written to by central Government threatening possible intervention should the Plan review continue to be delayed and the council remain committed to the revised timeline of cunsultations through June/July 2018, submission in October 2018 and adoption in May 2019.

We continue to promote our site through the consultaion process with the latest submissions being made on the 25th June as well as monitoring the possible intervention by central Government should they be dissatisfied with the LPA's progress.
