Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

South Downs Local Plan & Policies Map

The South Downs Local Plan was formally adopted by the South Downs National Park Authority on Tuesday 2 July 2019. 

The Local Plan is part of the statutory development plan for the whole National Park, along with the minerals and waste plans and ‘made’ (adopted) Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDP). It sets out how we will manage development over the period 2014 to 2033.

All Local Plan policies and Neighbourhood Plan policies should be viewed together and not in isolation.

The South Downs Policies Map illustrates how the policies in the adopted Local Plan will apply.

The Local Development Scheme sets out the timetable for key planning policy documents.
