Current stage: Identifying the issues and options
Estimated adoption: March 2019
Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2) will form the second stage of Waverley's new Local Plan. Together with Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites (LPP1) this document will replace the current Local Plan (2002).
While Local Plan Part 1 specified the overall spatial strategy for development and growth in the borough, and allocated strategic sites, Local Plan Part 2 will provide the more detailed day-to-day planning policies and will allocate sites needed for housing or other land use needs. It will also review the boundaries of our town centres and important local landscape designations.
Issues and Options Consultation
The Issues and Options consultation represents the first key stage in the development of LPP2. This consultation has now closed, it ran for six weeks from Monday 12 June to 5pm on Monday 24 July 2017.
We will consider all of the comments received and use them to inform the next key stages of LPP2.
The document can be viewed in hard copy at the Council offices in Godalming, and at libraries and locality offices within the borough.
