Wealden District Council are currently consulting on the draft Wealden Local Plan (Regulation 18).  This consultation opened at 5pm on Friday 15th March 2024 and runs until 5pm on Friday 10th May 2024.

The new Local Plan will be the key planning document for the district, excluding the area covered by the South Downs National Park Authority. Once adopted, the Local Plan will form part of the Development Plan for the District, replacing all existing local plan policies and will be used to assess and make decisions on planning applications.

The consultation draft Local Plan looks ahead to 2040; it provides a vision for the district, a long-term spatial strategy for growth, including proposed locations for development and it provides a range of draft strategic and non-strategic policies, contributing to social, environmental and economic (Sustainable Development) goals.
