Pre-submission Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites

Consultation on the Pre-Submission Local Plan Part 1 has now closed.

Thank you to everyone who made representations.

The Pre-Submission Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites sets out the planning strategy for Waverley up to 2032 and includes specific policies to address the key issues and challenges facing the Borough. The plan has taken account of the comments made during the various consultations that have already taken place.

The council consulted on the Local Plan between Friday19 August and Monday 3 October 2016.  

You can view the responses made by chapter, or if you prefer, you can view the whole list of respondents in alphabetical order and search for those that you want to read.  

A number of responses were received on pre-printed postcards. These have been treated in the same way as all other responses and can be seen on this spreadsheet.

Although the consultation is now closed and you can no longer comment, the following documents are still available to view:

In addition, there are a number of other supporting evidence documents which are available to view and download.

What happens next?

We have collated and analysed all comments and have produced a schedule of responses and suggested modifications to the Local Plan. This was agreed by the Council at its meeting on 29 November 2016  for submission to the Secretary of State. It is proposed that the Local Plan, associated documents and your representations will be submitted to  the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government later this month, for examination.
