Waverley Borough Council is currently in the process of preparing Local Plan Part 2. It will set out detailed Development Management policies, review a suite of local designations and allocate sites residential development in the parishes of Haslemere and Witley (including Milford). The Council’s targeted call for sites runs to 10th July 2020.
Brett Spiller, Director at Chapman Lily Planning explained ‘the strategic allocations in the Local Plan Part 1 were hotly contested in a Borough defined as much by Green Belt as its settlements. Part 1 was finally adopted in 2018, but subsequently challenged in the High Court. Ultimately the challenges failed. Part 1 cascaded more localised allocations down to Neighbourhood Plans and LPP2, so the debate was always set to continue. Progress on the Neighbourhood Plans has proved glacial, so the Local Plan Part 2 is now set to determine allocations in Haslemere and Witley and the Council are keen to exhaust all options.
