Local Plan

A Local Plan is the key document that sets out the priorities and policies for development in a certain area. It shows the opportunities for development in the area, and states what will and will not be permitted and where.

The plan that is currently used is called the Adopted Local Plan. This consists of the Joint Core Strategy (2014), Housing and Employment Allocations (2016) and the Local Plan Second Review (2006).

The Emerging Local Plan

We are currently working on an Emerging Local Plan. This will replace the current adopted Local Plan. It will plan for the area in East Hampshire, outside of the South Downs National Park.
