The adopted Lewes District Core Strategy forms Part 1 of the Local Plan.
The Local Plan Part 2 will allocate land for housing, including Gypsy and traveller pitches, and employment. It will also set out detailed planning policies to guide development and change in the period to 2030. When adopted by the Council, these new policies will replace most of the remaining ‘saved’ policies of the Lewes District Local Plan 2003.
We have previously consulted on the Consultation Draft Local Plan Part 2 and the Pre-Submission Local Plan Part 2. These documents can be viewed at our consultation page (see 'Closed' consultations). You can also download the relevant Cabinet and Full Council background documents below.
We have submitted the Local Plan Part 2 for independent examination. A Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State is conducting an examination into the soundness and legal compliance of the Plan. Following the examination hearings, the Inspector has recommended that we publish ‘main modifications’ to the Plan for consultation. Full details are available at our examination page.
