The Local Plan is a plan for the future development of the local area, drawn up by the Local Planning Authority. It guides decisions on whether or not planning applications can be granted.

Waverley's new Local Plan replaces the Local Plan (2002) and will direct new development in Waverley up to 2032.

LPP1 includes a spatial strategy showing how much development will be delivered in the Borough to 2032 and how this will be distributed. It includes strategic policies on a range of issues, including transport, housing, employment and infrastructure, and strategic site allocations for developments of more than 100 homes.

The second part of the new Local Plan will contain policies that direct planning application decisions. It will allocate non-strategic sites for housing, review the boundaries of our town centres and local landscape designations, and allocate sites for gypsy and traveller accommodation.

The June 2017 Local Plan newsletter provides more information about the Part 1 and Part 2 of the new Local Plan
