PUSH Spatial Position Statement

The PUSH Spatial Position Statement sets out the overall need for,  and a distribution of development in South Hampshire to 2034. It sets out the employment and housing development needed to promote economic growth, jobs and homes for all. It is focussed on achieving a renaissance of Portsmouth, Southampton and the other urban areas, protecting the most important aspects of the environment and co-ordinating transport and other infrastructure. It proposes development targets for individual Councils within South Hampshire.

It forms a significant part of the statutory duty to co-operate that Councils have with each other, and will inform the preparation of Local Plans by each Council within PUSH.
