I have collected a number of documents as the site has grown and rather than scatter them throughout the site have pulled them all together here. The majority of them are rather large so you probably need to put a little bit of time to one side to work through them. If you know of any others that could usefully be included here please e-mail a link to mail@informfareham.org.uk and I shall endeavour to add them to the list.

Objectively-assessed housing need update
This report provides an assessment of housing need. The assessment is undertaken on a “policy off” basis, as required by future housing targets – which are derived by bringing together evidence of need, with understanding of land availability, development constraints and what can be sustainably accommodated in different parts of the PUSH Area. This report updates the work set out in the PUSH SHMA Final report (January 2014) although certain sections including the Housing Market

PUSH Spatial Position Statement
Some of the key points in the NATIONAL PLANNING POLICY FRAMEWORK (NPPF) are as follows. Development should be promoted in urban areas and on previously developed land; and be located to make the fullest use of public transport, walking and cycling. The natural environment (landscapes and habitats) should be conserved and enhanced. Development should avoid flood risk zones and take account of agricultural land quality

Welborne Outline Planning Application
The OPA has been prepared with the benefit of pre-application discussions with, inter alia, FBC, Hampshire County Council, Highways England, Natural England, Solent LEP and, importantly, following substantive consultation with the local existing communities. In addition, a separate full planning application will be submitted to Winchester City Council (WCC) that will enable the provision of related enhanced Green infrastructure within the existing Dashwood. This area is outside the application boundary, administratively within WCC, but provides a supporting use for Welborne.

HSE's Land use planning methodology
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is a statutory consultee on certain developments in the vicinity of major hazard sites and major accident hazard pipelines. HSE’s land use planning (LUP) advice is based on the methodology set out in this document, and in the majority of cases HSE’s advice is provided through HSE’s Planning Advice Web App.
Garden Towns & Villages cover
Smart Growth UK report on garden towns and villages
All of the “garden towns” are simple agglomerations of major urban extensions already proposed, in many cases miles apart and lacking any relationship to one another. Only three of the 14 garden villages meet DCLG’s land-hungry requirement that they should be discrete settlements, but several of their promoters admit they hope to add further sprawl, once initial developments are complete.

South Hampshire Strategic Housing Market Assessment
South Hampshire Strategic Housing Market Assessment
National planning policies have been changing over the last few years and in March 2013 the Government revoked the South East Plan. The National Planning Policy Framework, published in March 2012, requires local planning authorities to collaborate with one another in planning to meet future development needs. The Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH) has a long history and strong track record of joint working and this study will assist all eleven of the Hampshire local authorities to facilitate joint decision making in taking forward strategic planning in a sustainable manner.

Housing cost graph
Six key charts ahead of the housing White Paper
Resolution Foundation
Headlines often focus on runaway house prices and rocketing rents but it’s the relationship between housing costs and incomes that really matters. This first chart from our Housing Headwind report shows that households throughout the income distribution are spending a larger share of their income on housing than they were 20 years ago, but it is LMIs who really feel the pinch.

South Hampshire Strategic Development Area (SDA)
This study has been commissioned by the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH) as part of the evidence gathering process to support significant housing growth to 2026. It considers the deliverability of two Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) identified in the Draft South East Plan and confirmed by the Examination in Public Panel Report (August 2007) and the Secretary of State’s Proposed Modifications (July 2008). One of the SDAs is within Fareham Borough and the other is north/north east of Hedge End.
