Interventions to support economic growth

  • 123

PUSH’s prime objective is to improve South Hampshire’s economic performance. This requires the provision of land for development and infrastructure to support growth.  It is also important to protect the environment and quality of life.

A ready supply of employment land of the right type and in the right places is critical.  A range of sizes and types of new homes including affordable housing are needed.  The transport and water infrastructure needs to be upgraded and new services like schools and doctors surgeries provided to support growth.  South Hampshire and the surrounding area has a high quality environment which needs to be protected.

A PUSH Spatial Position Statement was completed in 2016, and is supported by wide ranging evidence.  It sets out the overall need for development to 2034 and proposes development targets for each Council.  It helps Councils meet their duty to co-operate with each other.  It replaces the earlier South Hampshire Strategy (2012) which looked to 2026.
