The Eastbourne Core Strategy Local Plan sets out the key direction and planning framework for Eastbourne. It provides the strategic policies which alongside the saved policies of the Eastbourne Borough Plan (2003), will be used to determine planning applications. The Lewes Core Strategy is a separate plan with its own documentation and policies.
The Eastbourne Plan Core Strategy was adopted by Full Council on 20th February 2013, alongside the Policies Map (formerly known as the Proposal Map), following the recommendations from the Inspector who examined the Core Strategy. The adopted Policies Maps have been superseded following adoption of the Employment Land Local Plan, see Amended November 2016 Policies Maps.
We have also adopted two technical notes on affordable housing and local employment. You can download these documents including a formal adoption statement below.
