Consultation on Lewes District Local Plan Part 2

Lewes District Council is preparing the ‘Lewes District Local Plan Part 2’ which, when adopted, will allocate specific sites for development and provide detailed development management policies. This document is needed to support and help deliver the strategic objectives and spatial strategy of the Lewes District Local Plan Part 1: Joint Core Strategy, adopted in 2016.
As part of the process of preparing the Local Plan Part 2, we have published a draft document for consultation. This follows an earlier Local Plan Part 2 ‘Issues and Options’ consultation undertaken in 2013/14.
As part of this consultation we are running a ‘call for sites’ for Gypsy and Traveller permanent pitches, please see the consultation website below for more details.

Representations on the Draft Local Plan Part 2 are invited over an 8 week period from 30 November 2017 to midnight on 25 January 2018.
