New consultation open to look at key modifications to the plan.
Brighton & Hove City Council have just launched their latest consultation regarding the development of the Local Plan for the city: City Plan Part 2.
Their City Plan Part 1 was adopted in 2016 and set out a strategic planning framework for the city to 2030, including targets for new housing and employment, and where new strategic development should go.
The City Plan Part 2 – which is currently being examined by a government planning inspector – sets out detailed policies for managing new development and further site allocations to help deliver much needed high-quality development.
This new consultation on the City Plan Part 2 relates to some key changes that have been identified as potentially being required. These include changes to policies relating to green infrastructure and nature conservation – including safeguarding the swift colonies at Brighton General Hospital; shopping areas; energy efficiency and renewable energy.
