Christchurch Bay & Harbour Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Strategy

A new coastal Strategy is being produced jointly by BCP Council (BCP) and New Forest District Council (NFDC), working together with the Environment Agency. It will consider how coastal communities and the environment can be managed sustainably to be resilient against the present and future risks of coastal flooding and erosion due to the effects of predicted climate change, including sea level rise and increased levels of storminess. We have been gathering information to establish a baseline for the Strategy to help us understand what would happen if we did nothing to manage coastal flood and erosion risk.

New Forest National Park


Our statement about the protected landscapes consultation.

We welcome the publication of the consultation on the Government’s Response to the Landscapes Review, which sets out proposals on how protected landscapes can play a key part in addressing some of society’s most pressing challenges relating to climate, nature and people’s recovery from the pandemic.

Our new Partnership Plan has five objectives which correspond well with the issues and opportunities identified in the Landscapes Review chaired by Julian Glover and the consultation announced today.

The Plan emphasises the importance of working together for our National Park and is for all the statutory bodies and partners caring for the Forest. It was developed after extensive consultation with partners and communities.

We are looking forward to responding to the consultation and to working with partners and communities to ensure our National Park delivers across the important agenda addressed by the proposals.

We are pleased that local delivery is recognised as essential and remains at the fore and that the importance of the distinct identity of landscapes such as the New Forest is acknowledged.

With our colleagues across the protected landscapes we will ensure the work of each landscape adds up to be greater than the sum of our parts to deliver a sustained recovery of the climate, nature and ourselves.

The consultation is now Closed.

New Forest District Council


Have your say — Polling District and Places Review

For all the details and survey, available until Sunday 28 August.


Comments are now invited on local planning guidance.


Air pollution impacts on everyone's health and is a major public health concern with the young, elderly and those with chronic health conditions being particularly susceptible. Air quality is therefore a material consideration within the planning regime. To make development acceptable we will expect mitigation measures to be implemented by the applicant to reduce emissions to air from all proposed development.

This draft supplementary planning document (SPD) provides additional guidance to the Local Plan for the New Forest District Council area. In particular it provides guidance to support Objective SO2 (Biodiversity and environmental quality) and Policy CCC1 (Safe and healthy communities) which aims to prevent pollution or hazards which prejudice the health or safety of communities.

The draft SPD provides guidance on when an Air Quality Assessment will be needed to support a planning application and what the assessment needs to address. It also confirms when an Air Quality Statement is required. Where necessary to enable development to take place, appropriate mitigation measures will be required, the document contains suggested mitigation measures.
