Horsham District Local Development Framework - Facilitating Appropriate Dev. Annual Monitoring - home  >  Local Development Documents  >  Facilitating Appropriate Dev.


The Council adopted the Facilitating Appropriate Development Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on the 29 May 2009.

The SPD sets out the requirements against which planning applications for development, put forward by landowners/developers, as a response to the evolving circumstances, on greenfield and brownfield sites which adjoin defined settlement boundaries sites in the District, will be considered. The document has arisen from the need to provide ‘flexibility’ to ensure that there is sufficient housing supply during the life of the existing adopted Core Strategy (2007).
