Supplementary Planning Documents, briefs and advice notes
The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) produce a range of documents which add further detail to the policies in the Local Plan. They can be used to provide further guidance for development on specific sites, or on particular issues, such as design.
Development Briefs November 2018
The SDNPA has produced development briefs for four significant sites which have been identified as suitable for housing in the South Downs Local Plan policies SD64, SD81, SD82 and SD89. The development briefs, which were all subject to public consultation in the Spring of 2018, set out how the Authority expects the sites to be developed and will provide guidance for any subsequent planning applications.
- Development Brief – Brickworks and Former Depot Site, Midhurst
- Development Brief – Land South of London Road, Coldwaltham
- Development Brief – Holmbush Caravan Park, Midhurst
- Development Brief – Land at Pulens Lane, Sheet
Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area SPD provides guidance for applicants where development proposals will result in a net increase in residential development (including Traveller Accommodation) within 400 metres of the Wealden Heaths Phase II Special Protection Area (SPA). The document sets out the approach that East Hampshire District Council and the SDNPA will take to help meet the need for Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople accommodation and rural affordable housing exception sites as this need cannot be met solely outside of the 400 metre buffer zone.
The SPD was adopted by the SDNPA on 12th July 2018 and East Hampshire District Council on 31st July 2018.
