Eastbourne Local Plan - Growth Strategy

Next Steps

LP Timeline copy

Whilst this document focuses on housing and employment growth, work is also progressing on the other policy issues to be covered by the Local Plan. For example, a series of evidence base documents are currently being prepared covering a range of policy areas. This work, alongside the outcomes of this consultation, will feed into the development of the next stage of the Local Plan.

A draft Local Plan will be published that sets out the preferred strategy for growth, site allocations and policies, and it is expected that this will be subject to public consultation in late 2023. Following this the plan will be submitted to Government to commence the examination process, and it is anticipated that the Local Plan will finally be adopted in late 2024.
