Your views are really important to us and they are a vital part of producing a plan that meets the needs of the Plan Area.

When can I have my say?

The draft document was available for review and comment from 13 December 2018 until 7 February 2019. This was an extended consultation period to take into account the Christmas and New Year period.

We will consult with you again on a revised version of the Local Plan, prior to examination by a Government Inspector.

How can I find out more information?

On our consultation portal you can also register to be automatically notified on consultations throughout the stages of the Local Plan.

However, we understand that not everyone has a computer and so reference copies are available for you to view at Chichester District Council offices, The South Downs National Park offices in Midhurst and at libraries at Chichester, Selsey and Southbourne.
