Consultation on the local plan - part 2
Residents, businesses and developers are being invited by Waverley Borough Council to give their views on the draft Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies.
The council adopted part one of the new Local Plan in February 2018. This set the overall strategy for development in the borough for the period up to 2032 and contains key strategic policies, including the number of new homes to be provided and their broad distribution. Local Plan Part 2 will complete this work by setting the policies that direct planning application decisions, and will allocate sites for housing in Haslemere and Witley, where individual Neighbourhood Plans are not doing so. Part 2 of the Plan also allocates sites in the borough for Gypsies and Travellers and will review other land designations.
You can comment on the document by submitting your views between Friday 27th November 2020 and Friday 29th January 2021 (inclusive).
The plan and supporting documents as well as information on how to make a representation, is available to view on the council’s website at: Local Development Scheme (LDS) | Waverley Borough Council
Hard copies of the documents will be available for viewing at the Council Offices, The Burys, Godalming, GU7 1HR by appointment only, and other suitable arrangements will be made for those who are not able to view the documents electronically and who are either unable or unwilling to travel to Godalming during the current pandemic. Anyone wishing to make such arrangements should contact the council’s Customer Services Team on 01483 523333.
Following the consultation, the plan will be updated and submitted to the Secretary of State for approval and subsequent adoption as council policy.
