The calling of the general election has rather overshadowed this important local event which will affect Lewes and the nearby surrounding area. The Lewes Neighbourhood Plan, when approved, will become a legal planning document setting out the principles of how planning applications will be treated over the next 15 years or so; at least until 2030. It will sit alongside the Lewes District Plan, which has already been approved by the Secretary of State, and the South Downs National Park Plan which is due to come out for consultation in September 2017.
