Parish Council's response to the Local Plan Modifications

 

 

As you may know the Inspector who is examining Waverley's Local Plan suggested some modifications to the Local Plan which were all fully accepted by Waverley Borough Council.

The main modification was a dramatic increase in the OAN - in other words the objectively assessed number of houses Waverley should aim to build. This is driven by the unmet number of houses built in Woking.

Attached to this news is Busbridge Parish Council's response which is our contribution to the Consultation on the Local Plan Modifications.

The consultation ends on 20th October 2017 so if you want to have your say email your comments to planningpolicy@waverley.gov.uk
