Lewes District Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies DPD and Sustainability Appraisal

LPP2 front cover Nov 2017Consultation Draft Local Plan Part 2

Lewes District Council is inviting you to comment on the Consultation Draft Local Plan Part 2. This document seeks to deliver the strategic objectives and spatial strategy of the Local Plan Part 1: Joint Core Strategy by:

  • identifying and allocating additional sites to meet development growth identified in Local Plan Part 1;
  • setting out detailed (non-strategic) development management policies to guide development and change

Please note that Local Plan Part 2 will only apply to the area of Lewes District covered by the Lewes District Planning Authority (i.e. excluding the area within the South Downs National Park).  The South Downs National Park Authority is preparing its own Local Plan which will cover the whole Park area.

Local Plan Part 2, and its accompanying Sustainability Appraisal, are being published for consultation with the local community and other interested parties between 30 November 2017 and 25 January 2018. Both consultation documents can be accessed below or hardcopies are available to read at the District Council Offices at Southover House, Southover Road, Lewes, BN7 1AB and at all local libraries, including Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Saltdean and Uckfield. Have your say now by either commenting directly on the documents below or emailing your comments to ldf@lewes.gov.uk.  You can respond to each of the documents and complete as many questionnaires as needed.

For further information, please contact the Planning Policy Team via ldf@lewes.gov.uk or 01273 471600 (asking for the Planning Policy Team).
