In December 2022 the National Park Authority took the decision to incorporate the Area Action Plan into the South Downs National Park Local Plan Review process. This decision responds to the significant changes being proposed to the planning system. It also recognises the current challenges relating to water neutrality. More information on this decision can be found in the National Park Authority Report and Decision.
The SDNPA have written to all those who responded to the consultation and requested to be kept informed on progress of the AAP. The letter can be found at the link below.
The feedback provided through the consultation will be taken into consideration and proposals will be developed for the site through the Local Plan Review process. We will continue to develop the evidence base for the site which will inform the policy approach for the site, alongside the feedback provided.
