South Downs Local Plan Pre-Submission Consultation

26 September – 21 November 2017


The South Downs National Park Authority has published the Pre-Submission version of the South Downs Local Plan for public consultation.


This is your final chance to have your say on the Local Plan before it is submitted to Government in 2018.


This is the first Local Plan to cover the entire South Downs National Park. It sets out 96 policies which will be used to determine planning application in the South Downs National Park - including a number of land allocations for development.


While the consultation is mainly looking at the soundness of the plan, every comment will be passed, exactly as submitted, to the Planning Inspectorate who will respond to them as part of their examination into the Local Plan.


You can read the local plan and respond online at www.southdowns.gov.uk/localplan.
