The Local Plan Review is a planning document which sets out the development strategy for the district to 2036-37. It is an update of the adopted 2013 Core Strategy Local Plan and continues to include policies for strategic development sites but also introduces proposed policies for a new Garden Settlement and additional sites in Sellindge in the North Downs Area. It is accompanied by the Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment.

Call for sites

The council has opened up a fresh call for sites to run concurrently alongside the consultation.

Should you wish to submit an alternative site, that has not previously been submitted for consideration as part of the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), then please complete and return  this form [203kb].

This could include land suitable for housing (strategic sites with capacity for 250+ sites only), gypsy and traveller pitches, employment, retail, leisure or other uses.
