Local plan review

Chichester District Council have just announced they have now reached the point where they can show they have a 5-year housing land supply to provide an indication of whether there are sufficient sites available to meet the Government’s housing requirement over the next five years, as required by the National Planning Policy Framework. This will strengthen CDC’s ability to protect the area against inappropriate development, enabling more importance to be given to the adopted local plan when dealing with planning applications and appeals.
