Chichester Local Plan Regualtion19 (Publication of a Local Plan) Consultation

Chichester District Council (CDC) are preparing their Local Plan for the period 2021 to 2039 (18 years) which has now achieved Regulation 19 stage (Publication of a Local Plan) under the ‘Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012’. This involves a public consultation on the Publication Local Plan (R19 PLP) prior to submitting the plan to the secretary of state for examination. This stage invites representations that relate to only to legal and ‘soundness’ issues with the R19 PLP. The R19 PLP sets out a constrained strategy to deliver a level of housing growth that is less than the identified local need for the planning authority area - based on the Government’s Standard Housing Methodology (SHM). The reason for this constrained approach is because the district is unable to support or deliver the necessary enabling and mitigation infrastructure to support this level of growth - particularly the capacity of the A27 and Waste Water treatment capacity.
