The Sustainable Community Strategy sets out Gosport's 2026 Vision which has been developed in parallel with the Local Development Framework (which sets out future land use in the Borough).
The first stage in developing the Vision involved extensive data collection on a range of quality of life issues which provided a statistical picture of the Borough. This data is updated periodically and is contained in a report called The Gosport Sustainability Profile.
The second stage involved a large-scale community consultation, 'Make your Mark', which allowed residents, businesses and visitors to comment and prioritise the key issues. Over 1200 people took part in this highly successful participation event and the results were used to inform the Vision.
In addition to this, key service providers were consulted and other consultation findings and local and regional plans and strategies were assessed. Drawing on the information obtained from the research and consultations Gosport's 2026 Vision was produced.
