Hamsey Neighbourhood Plan adopted by Lewes District Council

Hamsey’s Neighbourhood Plan 2015-2030 “Sustainable Growth for the Whole Community” has been formally adopted by Lewes District Council following a successful referendum in June this year.

Councillor Tom Jones, Lead Member for Planning at Lewes District Council said “I am delighted that Hamsey’s Neighbourhood Plan has been formally adopted. It was prepared by Hamsey Parish Council, with assistance from Lewes District Council’s Planning Officers and includes a range of policies that will deliver the Parish Council’s vision for the parish for many years to come.”

The formal adoption of the plan by Lewes District Council means that it will form part of the statutory development plan for the district alongside the Lewes Local Plan, and will be used to determine planning applications in Hamsey by both the District Council and the South Downs National Park Authority.
