In accordance with the above regulations notice is hereby given that Test Valley Borough Council adopted the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2011-2029 on 27th January 2016.
The Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2011-2029 sets out the Council's vision and strategy for the Borough until 2029, the proposed locations for development and policies which will be used in determining planning applications. The Revised Local Plan covers the administrative area of Test Valley Borough Council except for that part within the New Forest National Park and replaces the 'saved' policies of the Test Valley Borough Local Plan (2006).
Inspector Mr Phillip Ware BSc (Hons) DipTP MRTPI, appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, undertook an examination of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2011-2029 which included public hearing sessions in December 2014 and January 2015. The Inspector's report issued on 15th December 2015 concluded that the Revised Local Plan is sound and legally compliant subject to the Inspector's main modifications pursuant to Section 23 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
The Adopted version of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2011-2029 incorporates all of the main modifications set out in Appendix 1 of the Inspector's report.
