Draft Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites

Waverley's proposed draft Local Plan Part 1 was approved for publication by the Council at its meeting on 19 July 2016.

The plan is still a draft document and still has a number of stages to go through after the above committee. These include:

  • July/August – publication for pre-submission consultation. The dates of the consultation will be made available as soon as possible once approved by the Council.
  • November – the plan will be submitted for examination by a planning inspector

The plan sets out the key policies and overall strategy for managing and directing future development in Waverley up until 2032.  It sets out the council’s approach to delivering 519 homes per annum whilst taking into account the various constraints that affect Waverley.

You can register on the consultation portal to be informed of any future Planning Policy consultations, and this will enable you to take part online, or through a variety of methods. If you have made a representation to any previous policy consultation, you will already be registered. Please do not register again.
