South Downs Local Plan: Preferred Options

The South Downs National Park Authority published their South Downs Local Plan: Preferred Options for consultation on 2nd September for public consultation. As part of the consultation they are holding a series of public drop in sessions. These sessions will allow members of the public to drop in, see what is in the plan and ask questions of planning officers.

This consultation is open from 2 Sep 2015 at 08:00 to 28 Oct 2015 at 23:59.

More information on the Local Plan


The South Downs National Park needs properly managed development that conserves and enhances the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage for which it was designated. The National Park Authority (NPA) is therefore progressing work on its Local Plan, which is the first time the National Park has been planned as a single entity. It will replace 1,400 inherited policies and will build on the recent work of the joint core strategies.

The South Downs Local Plan: Preferred Options will be published for public consultation under Regulation 18 of The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 from 2nd September to 28th October 2015. This follows on from the Options consultation held in spring last year.


There will also be a number of roadshows running from 3 to 8pm to which all are welcome as follows:
• Hampshire Roadshow: 14th September at Greatham Village Hall
• Hampshire Roadshow: 21st September at Meon Hall, Meonstoke
• West Sussex Roadshow: 16th September at Arundel Town Hall
• Park wide: 12th September at the South Downs Centre, Midhurst
