The South Downs National Park (SDNP) is developing a ‘Local Plan’ for the whole of the Park. When approved by the Secretary of State it will become a legal document. It will include a set of policies and other information about how the National Park is intended to develop in the future. It will be very important when it comes to any form of development. Planning Applications will be judged with these policies in mind. The SDNP Plan will sit alongside the Lewes District Plan (Joint Core Strategy) and any Neighbourhood Plan (none of the village have developed one so far).

Consultation will be open from 2 September to 28 October 2015.From 2 September you’ll be able to submit your comments online or in by post. You can read and comment on the Local Plan here:  https://consult.southdowns.gov.uk/consult.ti/localplanpo/consultationHome
