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.

Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites was adopted by the Council on 20 February 2018. Local Plan Part 1 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.

Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies will contain policies that direct planning application decisions. It will allocate additional sites for housing in parts of the Borough, review the boundaries of our town centres and local landscape designations, and allocate sites for gypsy and traveller accommodation. Some Local Plan 2002 policies have been retained until Local Plan Part 2 is adopted.
