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.


Hampshire County Council



Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan - Partial Update


Hampshire’s five minerals and waste planning authorities are asking residents, local groups and businesses to help scrutinise proposed changes to Hampshire’s Minerals and Waste Plan to ensure that, in line with current legislation, it will continue to ensure provision of a steady and adequate supply of minerals and sufficient waste infrastructure, as well as maintain communities, protect the local environment and address the impacts of climate change.


A 12-week online consultation has opened (8 November 2022) for stakeholders to comment on proposed updates to policies, as well as provide additional helpful local knowledge about sites that have been identified for minerals extraction and transportation. These are important in ensuring that Hampshire can meet demand, for example, in the supply of sand, gravel and brickmaking clay to build houses, schools, hospitals and roads. 


The Consultation closes at 17:00 hrs on Tuesday 31st January 2023.


The Local Transport Plan


Hampshire County Council has a statutory requirement to have a Local Transport Plan (LTP) which sets out its vision for future transport and travel infrastructure. The current Local Transport Plan (LTP3) was developed in 2011 but is no longer relevant to today’s challenges and opportunities.

Over the course of the last two years we have been developing a new draft Local Transport Plan (LTP4) which
