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 already undertaken consultation on the ‘Issues and Options’ Topic Papers and the Consultation Draft Local Plan Part 2. The Consultation Draft document and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal can be viewed at our consultation page (see Closed consultations). A summary of the representations received and how these have been addressed is contained in the ‘Summary of Consultation’ document below.
Our Cabinet has considered the amendments proposed to the Local Plan Part 2 in the light of these representations at its meeting on 17th September. Papers were published on 10th September on the Cabinetpage. Cabinet approved the document for a further consultation period (24th September - 5th November 2018) prior to its submission to the Secretary of State.
