Draft Worthing Local Plan Consultation (October 2018)

Introduction

Worthing Local Plan (logo)

Worthing Borough Council is preparing its new development plan, called the Worthing Local Plan.

The Plan, that looks ahead to 2033, will be a key document in shaping the future of the borough as it provides the strategy for growth, setting out what development will take place and where.

When adopted, the new Plan will replace the borough's existing local planning policies and will be an important consideration in deciding planning applications.

This stage of Local Plan progression represents an important step as the Draft Plan sets out the Councils preferred options that are now published for consultation.
