Lewes Local Plan Part 2: Site allocations and development management policies

The adopted Lewes District core strategy forms Part 1 of the Local Plan.

The Local Plan Part 2 allocates land for housing, including Gypsy and traveller pitches, and employment. It also sets out detailed planning policies to guide development and change in the period to 2030. The Local Plan Part 2 was adopted on 24 February 2020 and now forms part of the development plan for that part of Lewes district outside of the South Downs National Park.
