City Council Planning Inquiry


Southampton City Council is today kicking off an inquiry into planning issues. 

The first meeting of several meetings is being held this evening. All meetings will be conducted in public at the Civic Centre so people can go along. It may be possible to address the panel and people are certainly encouraged to make written representations.

I have attached a link this evening’s meeting, which is just setting out the terms of reference.

The main meetings are at 5pm and as follows:

9th January – looking at planning policies towards Houses of Multiple Occupation. (click HERE for a link to the papers)

6th February – looking at the effectiveness of planning enforcement

6th March – looking at other planning policies – national and local, including conversion of office and retail to residential use

The inquiry is an opportunity to strengthen and improve the council’s approach to these planning issues.

If you would like to make comments or speak to someone to get more information you can contact Mark Pirnie at the City Council:
