The Development Plan sets out the policy framework to guide development in the District and is used to determine planning applications.
The Development Plan for Hart is currently made up of several different documents:
The Council is preparing, and has submitted for examination, a Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011-2029 which is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. This will replace many of the ‘saved’ policies mentioned above in the first bullet.
National planning policy and guidance, Statutory Instruments and Circulars are also taken into account, which can be viewed on the Communities and Local Government website.
You may also wish to visit the Supplementary Planning Information web page which sets out planning guidance that accompanies the Local Plan and will be considered in the determination of planning applications.
