Waverley Local Plan

Local Plan Part 1

The Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites (LPP1) sets out the Council's spatial framework for delivering the development and change needed to realise our vision for development in Waverley up to 2032.

View Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites

LPP1 replaces a number of policies from Local Plan 2002. Some of the Local Plan 2002 policies have been retained until the adoption of Local Plan Part 2.

Local Plan Part 2

Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2) will form the second stage of Waverley's new Local Plan. Together with Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites (LPP1) this document will replace the 2002 Local Plan.

LPP1 specifies the overall spatial strategy for development and growth in Waverley, and allocated strategic sites. LPP2 will provide the more detailed 'Development Management' policies, review a suite of local designations and will allocate sites needed for housing or other uses in certain areas of Waverley.
