Evidence Base - Environment

The below documents form part of the Council’s planning evidence base. Please also be aware of the links available on this page.

Southern Test Valley lies within the South Hampshire sub-region and the Council has worked collaboratively with neighbouring local authorities through the Partnership for South Hampshire (PfSH), on a joint evidence base to inform development requirements for the sub-region. Copies of this evidence base are available on the PfSH website www.push.gov.uk
