Rushmoor Council's core strategy gets green light

Rushmoor Borough Council's core strategy document has been approved by the Planning Inspectorate.

The core strategy sets out the spatial strategy for development in Rushmoor until 2027. It aims to accommodate more than 6,000 new homes in the borough, of which 4,250 will be on former military land in Aldershot.

The strategy also includes policies protecting key employment sites, encouraging affordable housing, protecting sensitive ecological areas and setting out how, if proposed, the council should consider any future changes at Farnborough Airport.

Councillor Roland Dibbs, cabinet member for the environment, said: "We put a lot of hard work into making sure it was right, including involving the community at every stage, so it is very satisfying that the inspector has given us the go-ahead to adopt it.
