Waverley’s draft Local Plan reaches major milestone

Published Monday, 20 June 2016

Waverley’s proposed draft Local Plan will be considered by the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 27 June 2016.

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.

Elizabeth Sims, Head of Planning at Waverley Borough Council said: “The focus of work on the new Local Plan has been to update the evidence of housing need, infrastructure capacity and the availability of land to develop the most appropriate strategy for the borough.

“The plan is still a draft document; however I am delighted that after years of hard work we are now in a position where we can start the democratic process.”

Following input from the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Local Plan Special Interest Group (SIG), the draft plan and the comments will be considered by the Executive at its meeting on Tuesday 12 July, before it is presented to Full Council on 19 July 2016.

If approved, the plan will be submitted in November for examination by a Planning Inspector.
