School places plan

Hampshire County Council has a statutory duty to ensure a sufficiency of school places for Hampshire children

The School Places Plan sets out the identified need for extra mainstream school places. The plan covers Hampshire up to the year 2026 for:

  • the primary sector (4 to 11 year olds)
  • the secondary sector (11 to 16 year olds)

Financial contributions from building developers

There is central government guidance about developers’ contributions. Hampshire County Council expects financial contributions from developers. This is to meet the cost of children’s services facilities required as a direct result of any new housing development.

Hampshire guidance: Developers’ contributions towards Children’s Services facilities (includes schools and pre-school facilities)
